    Episode 13, Part 2: The Enduring Impact of Oslo

    This month, we're launching a special, two-part episode to mark the anniversary of the first Oslo agreement. In Part 1, host Andrew Hirsh spoke with a pair of OneVoice colleagues, Hela Lahar and Ezzeldeen Masri—the former Israeli, the latter Palestinian—to learn what it felt like to watch this process unfold—and to understand the heartbreak that came with its demise.

    Today, in Part 2, young activists from the region join the program to discuss what Oslo means to them, and how it has affected their lives.

    Under Fire: How the Latest Crisis in Israel-Palestine Unfolded on the Ground

    Under Fire: How the Latest Crisis in Israel-Palestine Unfolded on the Ground

    Earlier this month, the specter of unjust evictions in Sheikh Jarrah led to Israeli settler attacks on Palestinians, incendiary balloons and rockets from Hamas, Palestinian attacks on Jewish Israelis, and a heavy response from Israeli military and police. While Israel and Hamas have agreed to a ceasefire, hundreds of civilians are dead, many thousands in Gaza are displaced, millions are traumatized, and ethnic tensions inside Israel have boiled over into violence—threatening the future of Arab-Jewish coexistence.

    To help us understand this crisis, we’re joined today by two guests who experienced it far too intimately: Khaled Gannam from the Gaza Strip, and Tamar Cohen-Mordechai from southern Israel.

    Our interview with Khaled begins at 4:37.

    Our interview with Tamar begins at 43:19.

    Episode 10: Will Palestinians Finally Hold Elections?

    Episode 10: Will Palestinians Finally Hold Elections?

    It’s been 15 long years since a Palestinian election. And while they could be delayed or cancelled, that streak could end next month. What would it mean for Palestinians—particularly young adults—to cast votes? What if elections fall apart? To help us understand these questions, and plenty more, we're joined by Wasim Almasri: Regional Program Manager at Alliance for Middle East Peace.

    Episode 9: Why is Israel holding another election?!

    Episode 9: Why is Israel holding another election?!

    On March 23, in the midst of a pandemic and economic crisis, Israel will hold its fourth election in two years. You read that correctly: After two rounds of voting in 2019 and one last year, Israel has been unable to form a stable government. Why does this keep happening? How does Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, now facing criminal charges, remain a top contender? Will this election break the cycle, or will Israelis head back to the polls in a matter of months?

    To help us understand this unprecedented moment, we’re joined by veteran journalist Shmuel Rosner: editor of TheMadad.com and a senior fellow at the Jewish People Policy Institute. Rosner has also served as a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and a political editor for the Jewish Journal.
