As the latest conflict in Gaza fades from the headlines, we focus on the issue of what lies ahead when the guns fall silent and the reporters go home: is there still a real vision for a peace beyond the destruction?
In this podcast, our team of Muslim and Jewish presenters are joined by contributors from around the world. They include:
- Ben Keene, setting up a Palestinian and Israeli peacebuilding audio recording project, (7m20s in)
- CEJI Director Robin Sclafani on European Jewish-Muslim dialogue and their vision for peace (46m30s in).
- Len and Elias from the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogues initiative in the USA, (55m55s in)
- Gershon Gan, former Israeli ambassador to Zimbabwe (1h,1m 45s in)
The programme also includes a deeply moving discussion between Salaam Shalom presenters and friends Javed and Tal (33m40s in). Presenter Danyel also provides an eyewitness account of the political activism caused by the Gaza conflict, (17m30s in). It closes at 1h14m50s with a special look at Gaza by the "Kickin' It Back" team.
We also feature the music of Yusuf Islam, David Broza and Said Murad, Hdag Nagash and other artists promoting the message of peace.
