Join J Street U for this amazing opportunity to hear both an Israeli and Palestinian leader explore the two-state solution as a reflection of their commitments to Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Ghaith Al-Omari is the Executive Director at the American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP). He served in various positions within the Palestinian Authority, including Director of the International Relations Department in the Office of the Palestinian President, and advisor to former Prime Minister, Mahmoud Abbas. In these capacities, he provided advice on foreign policy -- especially vis-à-vis the United States and Israel -- and security.

Ori Nir is the current spokesman for Americans for Peace now after his 24-year career in journalism, with a large focus on the Arab-Israeli conflict. He covered Palestinian affairs for Ha'aretz Daily (Israel's leading newspaper), during the early years of the first Intifada and through the implementation of the first phases of the Oslo Accords.
