CJPIP is excited to be organizing a Midwest speaking tour featuring prizewinning journalist Amira Hass. Hass brings fresh and much needed insight to the past, present, and future of Palestinian-Israeli relations. She draws on 30 years’ experience as an Israeli journalist and analyst who has sought and achieved unparalleled immersion in Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza.
Born in Jerusalem in 1956, Hass joined the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz in 1989 and has been its correspondent for the Occupied Palestinian Territories since 1993. She has lived in the West Bank city of Ramallah since 1997. Ramallah Chronicles, a compilation of her articles between 1997-2003, was published in 2005. Before taking up residence in the West Bank, Hass lived in Gaza for three years, which experience served as the basis for her widely acclaimed book, Drinking the Sea at Gaza.
CJPIP is a diverse, community-based group dedicated to organizing activities and educational events that advance the cause of peace and justice for both Palestinians and Israelis.
