Amidst our global pandemic, these are especially challenging days in Israel
and Palestine. Israel`s new government has announced its intent to annex the
West Bank, and senior Trump administration officials have signaled the U.S.
will support this move. Please join Extend for two sessions on the
implications of annexation for both Israelis and Palestinians:
