FOI with Mr. Hillel NEuer

On Thursday, September 15th, in preparation for the Palestinian Authority unilateral declaration of statehood at the United Nations, Tufts Friends of Israel invited Mr. Hillel Neuer to address the community on the topics of the U.N.’s differential treatment of Israel and whether the Palestinians would benefit from seeking recognition. The event was extremely successful with 80 people attending.

Neuer is the executive director of UN Watch, a human rights NGO in Geneva, Switzerland. He appears regularly before the UN Human Rights Council, intervening for the victimes of Darfurt, the rights of women, political prisoners in Cuba, Russia and Zimbabwe and the cause of Middle East peace.
