On April 16th, 2019, Palestine-Israel Journal Co-Editor Ziad AbuZayyad and Editorial Board Member Dr. Alon Liel were invited to speak at an evening in London organized by YPO (formerly Young Presidents' Organization) on the impasse in the Palestinian-Israeli political process and how to achieve a breakthrough.
The evening was attended by over 100 YPO members and was followed by a dinner. After the two speakers presented their views, the floor was opened to questions and comments.
The feedback was very encouraging, and the speakers expressed their thanks and appreciation to YPO for organizing the event and providing a platform for meaningful discussion. Following is a description of YPO:
