The call in number is 248-557-3300.
While at the Istanbul, Turkey Diaspora Conference, Younes interviewed attendees and explored the differences in the creative thinking of Palestinians as they try to confront challenges by Israel's Apartheid Government and the brutal Israeli military occupation of Palestine.
Younes reflected how Palestinians living in the Middle East deal with the issues differently than Palestinians living in Western societies like the United States and also countries in South America where Palestinian empowerment has been far more successful and effective, especially in participating in the local government and politics of countries like Chile, Honduras, Venezuela, Colombia and Brazil.
