Saturday, 10 July 2021
10am PT, 1pm ET (US, Canada) / 5pm UTC / 8pm Palestine
Presented by Friends of Wadi Foquin

Co-sponsored by: United Methodists for Kairos Response (UMKR);
Western Methodist Justice Movement (WMJM);
Israel/Palestine Task Force, California-Nevada Conference, UMC; and
United Methodists' Holy Land Task Force, California-Pacific Conference, UMC.

In June, Friends of Wadi Foquin presented a webinar on current land confiscation in
the West Bank village of Wadi Foquin for construction of a new segregated road
that will serve the illegal Israeli settlements and expand Israel’s apartheid

This month, we will look at the larger picture of Israel’s colonial settler enterprise
and the systematic confiscation of Palestinian land throughout the West Bank
including East Jerusalem.

This colonial theft is a key element of the Nakba, the catastrophe: the continuing crime of ethnic cleansing that the Palestinian people have endured since the Zionist project began in Palestine over a century ago.

Our special guest speaker will be Dr. Hatem Bazian, the renowned educator, community organizer, social justice activist, and prolific author, including the book " is something colonial." Dr. Bazian is co-founder and professor of
Islamic law and theology at Zaytuna College, the first accredited Muslim liberal arts college in the U.S. He is also co-founder and National Chair of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), lecturer on Near Eastern Studies and Asian American Studies at
UC Berkeley, and Executive Director of the Islamophobia Studies Center and Editor of the Islamophobia Studies Journal.

Ata Manasra, Coordinator of Narjes Community Development Committee in the West Bank village of Wadi Foquin, will also join us to provide an update on land confiscation in the village and current efforts to stop this annexation. Manasra is the liaison from the village to the Friends of Wadi Foquin and is also a professional tour guide.

Join us on July 10th for this highly informative macro and micro look at the Israeli settlements enterprise, the keystone of the Israeli occupation.
