I just want to give early word that the New America Foundation’s American Strategy Program and Middle East Task Force along with the Palestine Note will be hosting Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad for a talk titled “Building Palestine Under Occupation.”
This session will be an open, on the record discussion with Prime Minister Fayyad, touching on the future of a Palestinian state, the challenges of building state institutions under occupation, and the state of Palestinian politics.
We expect that Fayyad’s comments will reflect on the high stakes Palestine-Israel negotiations underway now.
The event will definitely be oversubscribed and crowded — so feel free to watch it live here at The Washington Note or the Palestine Note from 2:00 – 4:00 pm on Thursday, 23 September.
