Given the current turnoil in Egypt, the impasse in making progress towards a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the prominent role that the US government plays in the Middle East region
Professor Qlumsiyeh teaches and does research at Bethlehem and Birzeit Universities in Israeli occupied Palestine. His most acclaimed book is "Sharing the Land of Canaan: human rights and the Israeli/Palestinian Struggle.
His exposure as a boy to the harsh realities of Israeli military occupation helped Qumsiyeh "come to understand the importance of a plluralistic solution to the simmering conflict in the Land of Canaan. He brilliantly evokes the spirit of Jesus, Gandhi, Edward Said, Rachel and many others to tell the unvarnished truth about Palestine and Zionist settler colonialism.
