Hind Khoury, Palestinian Authority Minister of State for Jerusulem Affairs

will lecture on
'Out of Gaza, Into Jerusalem: Is the Two-State Solution Threatened?'

With world attention distracted by the military withdrawal from Gaza, Israel has steadily pushed on with its project to build a separation barrier through Palestinian areas in the West Bank. Minister Khoury will examine the construction of the barrier through East Jerusulem specifically, and discuss how it threatens to tear apart the social fabric of Palestinian society. Combined with expansion of settlements in East Jerusulem and illegal demolitions of Palestinian houses, Minister Khoury sees the construction of the barrier as naked attempt to make the city a permanent part of the Israeli state.

Mrs. Hind Khoury was appointed Palestinian Authority Minster of State in March, 2005 and serves as the Head of the Ministerial Committee for Jerusalem Affairs.
