On this edition of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins, it’s a conversation with Palestinian Ambassador to the U.S. Afif Safieh.  He’s in town to speak about the 60th Anniversary of Al Nakba, or the 1948 Palestinian Exodus.  We’ll talk about what that experience meant for his family and for Palestinians.  Then we’ll move to present time and explore the situration in Israel now, discuss U.S. / Arab relations, and more.

  1. I want to make sure that when my children hear about the Holocaust, they hear also about the oppression of the Palestinians.
    The Palestinian situation represents, in my opinion, the great hypocrisy of recent human history. I am even more disturbed with the complicit behaviour of MY government in this ongoing tragedy. I hope that your guest understands that a few Americans “get it”. The Israeli government is responsible for the disenfranchisement of an entire ethnic group…

  2. wow!
    what a wonderful speaker! If only bush could speak 1/2 as well.
    I agree with this gentleman.
    Great show

  3. This guy is a great speaker and has brought more prospective to the palestinian plight… How can I get a copy of this program?
