We need to talk about Israel/Palestine

On dialogue. In a special podcast by the Woolf Institute, recorded live at our ‘We need to talk about Israel/Palestine’ event, Baroness Warsi and Jonathan Freedland attempt to do just that. How can British Muslims and Jews talk about the conflict? Why have past discussions led to so many tensions? And what can we learn from an open and honest dialogue? Featuring Jonathan Freedland, Sayeeda Warsi and Ed Kessler.
