Aspen Jewish Community Center to host American, Palestinian and Israeli diplomats for peace conference

If you go:

What: American, Palestinian and Israeli diplomats will address the question, “Is Peace Possible?” at an all-day conference.

Where: Aspen Jewish Community Center, 435 West Main St. in Aspen

When: July 13, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Open to the public.

The Aspen Jewish Community Center on July 13 will host five distinguished American, Palestinian and Israeli diplomats — with decades of experience negotiating Palestinian-Israeli and Middle-East issues — to address the critical question “Is Peace Possible?”

The diplomats are:

Dr. Samih Abid

Hon. Daniel C. Kurtzer

Nidal Foqaha

Hon. Dr. Yosef “Yossi” Beilin

Hon. Dan Meridor

The goal of the conference will be to identify what Israelis and Palestinians are most likely to be able to agree upon in the present climate and build upon those areas of agreement to offer a realistic framework for a peace agreement. Borders, settlements, Jerusalem, right of return, recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, where is there agreement.

“Is Peace Possible?” Yes. The question is how to get there. Israelis and the Palestinians must find a way out of the black box of no progress. Time is not on their side.
