Dear friends

I need to be in Washington DC for a National Geographic Explorer Club June
11-17. We at he Palestine Museum of Natural History do not have funding for
this trip. Please let me know if you can help by arranging lectures in the
US (any states especially East Coast) for me and finding ways to fund at
least my airline tickets (and also if you have a place I can stay at in
Washington DC area). This is a good opportunity for us because as far as I
know, we are the first in Palestine to receive a grant from National
Geographic. "The Explorers Festival brings together you, our Explorers, to
share your work with one another, with National Geographic staff, and with
the world. This year, we anticipate 150 National Geographic Explorers will
join us for a week of sessions, trainings, workshops, presentations, and
social events with National Geographic Explorers and staff." Please let me
know if you can help.

Jewish prayer for Nakba day by Rabbi Brant Rosen
https://ynefesh.com/2018/04/19/a-jewish-prayer-for-nakba-day/

“One difference between South Africa and Israel is that Israel is stronger,
more sophisticated and better connected to the world. And it has done a
better job obscuring its apartheid. It’s big, strong and nondemocratic.
Israel oppresses the Palestinians through various means with one result:
There isn’t a single free Palestinian in the West Bank or Gaza Strip. Their
fate is determined by the Israeli government in Jerusalem and the Defense
Ministry in Tel Aviv, and they have no rights at either one. Is this not
apartheid? Is it democracy?” Gideon Levy, Haaretz.
