The Museum at Bethlehem University first trip to Europe
- 0

Ramadan Kareem to all Muslims from the Palestine Museum of Natural History, Bethlehem University. May this month bring blessings to ALL people. 

Below is my tentative schedule in Europe the next two weeks (Munich, Leipzig, Berlin, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Zurich, Dornbrin, Vienna). I also have non-public/other events but please contact me if you would like to arrange something in those cities or want to help out. Also send me any contacts you may have in the listed cities. My goals are 1) Promote the work of the Palestine Museum of Natural History, Bethlehem University (palestinenature.org), and 2) publicize my book  out now in German: “Kanaan. Ein gemeinsames Land. Menschenrechte und der israelisch-palästinensische Kampf”. In the latter book I discuss reconciliation and peace based on justice and human rights. At bottom are two reports about how BDS can help bring that about.

Er ist Vorsitzender des Palästinensischen Zentrums für die Versöhnung der Völker und Koordinator des Volkskomitees gegen Mauer und Siedlungen in Beit Sahour. Sein Buch „Sharing the Land of Canaan: Human Rights and the Israeli-Palestinian Struggle“ (2004) ist gerade auf deutsch erschienen: “Kanaan. Ein gemeinsames Land. Menschenrechte und der israelisch-palästinensische Kampf.“. Mazin Qumsiyeh: Persönlich glaube ich, daß eine vernünftigere und gerechtere Lösung, die alle Probleme wie die Kontrolle über Jerusalem und die Rückkehr der Flüchtlinge regeln könnte, in der Gründung eines demokratischen und säkularen Staates für Israelis und Palästinenser bestünde.
