Sept. 13 DIALOGUE Discusses Israeli-Palestinian Relations

— Airs Friday, September 13, at 7:30 p.m. MT/PT
— Repeats Sunday, September 15, at 5:00/4:00 p.m. MT/PT

As talks between Israelis and Palestinians start up once again, DIALOGUE host Marcia Franklin talks with an Israeli and a Palestinian about conversations they’ve organized for years between their respective communities as a result of funding from a Boise nonprofit.

Eden Fuchs, a former colonel in the Israeli Defense Forces, and Ibrahim Issa, a Palestinian educator, are part of a Boise-based group called the Center for Emerging Futures, started by Boisean Whit Jones and his wife, Paula. The center brings together Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank to get to know each other and then form groups around their mutual interests, such as travel, sports, cooking and computer programming. Franklin talks with Fuchs and Issa about why they’ve decided to work together, the challenges they face, and what they consider as their successes. She also talks with Jones about his goals for the center.
