A co-presentation by two Australian Zionists who will reflect on the observations they made on a recent visit to Hebron. A bustling Palestinian city of 250,000 people, Hebron is the only West Bank city with a centre excised by an enclave of 500 Israeli settlers. Hebron’s Cave of Machpelah is known to Muslims as the Ibrahimi Mosque and to Christians as Tomb of the Patriarchs. Around Machpelah, previously busy markets are now a ghost town of divided streets, barriers and no-go zones for Palestinians – officially for security to protect the settlers. Is Hebron a microcosm of the occupation and a barrier to the two-state solution and peace?
