Israel / Palestine Conflict -Staying Neutral?


Staying neutral in controversial situations is the moral high ground, right? Wrong. It’s the exact opposite. Author and inspirational speaker Anna Baltzer explains how neutrality is a dangerous trap — and an illusion. Taking a side, not impartiality, is what really helps resolve conflicts. You will be surprised as Baltzer shares how taking a side is the best thing that can happen to you, helping you find what you’d been looking for all along. Not only is it the right thing to do, but your own liberation depends on it. Anna Baltzer is an award-winning lecturer, author, and organizer for freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people. She is Director of Organizing & Advocacy at the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) and has appeared on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Kelly File, and at the Oxford Union, and been quoted in the New York Times, Associated Press, Washington Post, LA Times, Guardian, Al Jazeera, Business Insider, Australian, Huffington Post, Jewish Daily Forward, Ha’aretz, Jerusalem Post, and beyond. Baltzer has lectured at more than 500 universities, churches, parliaments, and policy institutes on five continents with her presentation and film, Life in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories & Photos and book “Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories.”
