One AEI staff member and 5 teenagers, males and females, Christians and Muslims went to Taize in summer 2014.
In a wide-ranging interview, AEI’s director Rania Murra discusses liberation strategy among Palestinians, boycott of Israeli products, the need to give personal examples, how to look at the influence of Da’aash (ISIS) in the Arab world, and the challenge of staying in Palestine.
It is too difficult to watch the images. All human life is precious. It is time to end the occupation of Gaza, the West Bank and East-Jerusalem. It is time for Palestine. This is the only solution for the ongoing Naqba [disaster] against all those innocent human beings who are exposed without any defense to the Israeli military machine.
Notwithstanding the wave of Israeli oppression in the West Bank (before the invasion of Gaza in July), AEI’s summer school managed to implement most of the activities. However, an animation cartoon project had to be cancelled because the female trainers from Gaza were not allowed to enter the West Bank.
