Palestinian Voices Excluded at Peace Conference

Dr. Mubarak Awad, who was originally invited to be the keynote speaker and workshop leader at Trinity Lutheran Seminary's Seeking Peace in the Holy Land event in Columbus Ohio, had his invitation rescinded a mere week before the conference is set to begin. Dr. Awad was the only Palestinian voice asked to participate in what is advertised as an inclusive dialogue. As it stands now, the conference is set to have not a single Palestinian voice. In spite of this, Dr. Awad will be present at the conference in silent protest. He plans to wear a strip of tape over his mouth, and hand out pamphlets explaining his purpose.
