The Enright Files: Israeli-Palestinian Relations
Now that next Spring's tour dates have been set (April 25-May 16, 2015), we're ready to prepare ourselves for what we're about to experience. The tour's title, "Ancient Stones, Living Stones," suggests that participants will enter the ancient world of biblical sites and stories and will visit with some of the people who live, work, and long for peace in the land. This CBC Radio "Ideas" program from May 4, 2015, takes us into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which serves as one avenue into the world of the living stones. Michael Enright interviews two Jewish Israeli journalists who offer their rather different perspectives.
"In the wake of a highly contentious election in March, many were wondering about the future of Israeli-Palestinian relations. It's an issue that Israel's oldest daily newspaper, Haaretz, has long grappled with. In this episode, Michael Enright revisits recent conversations with two of Haaretz's most influential columnists: Ari Shavit, the author of the acclaimed book, My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel, and the award-winning, but highly polarizing Gideon Levy."
