The National Interest Foundation is pleased to invite you to attend our luncheon discussion during which Jafar Farah will examine prospects for Middle East peace in light of the recent Israeli elections and political developments in the United States.
The United States has an interest in protecting the security of its long-term ally, Israel, and thereby also has an interest in achieving a negotiated settlement in Israel and Palestine, which would improve regional security. However, the ongoing tendency to disregard the needs of Palestinians, both in the occupied Palestinian territories and in Israel, has precluded the achievement of sustainable and just peace, undermining regional security and the livelihoods of Palestinians and Israelis alike.

About our Speaker:
Jafar Farah is the founder and the Director of Mossawa, the Advocacy Center for Arab Citizens in Israel. Jafar is a long-time advocate and activist for civil rights for the Arab community. He was formerly chair of the National Union of Arab Students and president of the Committee for Arab Students at the University of Haifa. After holding these posts, he founded CEGAS, the Center for Educational Guidance for Arab Students. As a community organizer and activist, he was involved in establishing several organizations such as I’lam, ACAP (Arab Center for Alternative Planning) and the follow-up committee for Arab education. Before establishing Mossawa, Jafar worked as a journalist for the Local network of Ha’aretz and as a TV producer. He continues to write articles that are published regularly in the Hebrew and Arabic press. He is one of the founders of the first Arab-language television station in Israel: Hala TV.
