Internal Palestinians Politics and Conflicts    Guest lecturer: Bassem Eid     8.00pm Monday 10 December
Bassem Eid is a Jerusalem-based political analyst, human rights expert and regular commentator on Arab and Palestinian affairs.
Bassem was born in the Jordanian-occupied Old City in East Jerusalem. In 1996, in response to the deterioration of the human rights situation under the PA, he founded the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group (PHRMG), which monitors abuses committed by the PA and deals to some extent with Israel. It is a non-partisan human rights organization, dedicated to exposing human rights violations and supporting a democratic and pluralistic Palestine. He has written extensively on the subject of UNRWA reform. He is an outspoken critic of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
Bassem has traveled widely as an expert on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, addressing multiple international conferences and governmental bodies. He has published numerous papers on the subject of Human Rights in the Israeli- Palestinian conflict and is a frequent contributor to The Jerusalem Post and Times of Israel.
He is a dynamic and prolific speaker who has been the recipient of international awards for his work on civil and human rights, seeking dignity for his people and peace with his neighbors.
Bassem Eid will speak about the Internal Palestinians Politics and Conflicts and explain to us how the Palestinian Authority and Hamas hold back their own people and any hope for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It is better to debate a question without settling it, than to settle a question without debating it.
