A Jewish American's Friendship With A Young Palestinian: Tragedy And Peace

Jeremy Richards
05/21/2011

Sometimes a global event feels so immediate that you remember exactly where you were when it happened. But you might not recall where you were on October 2, 2000. That was just a few days after the Second Intifada in Israel. Jen Marlowe remembers exactly where she was: Standing in her kitchen in Seattle, staring at a cup of coffee, and trying to decide what to do next. She had to decide whether or not to return to Israel as a peace activist, even as the violence was erupting. As a Jewish American, Jen started out with just an abstract curiosity about Israel, but her experience in the area and her friendship with a young Palestinian man named Aseel changed everything. Jen Marlowe talks with KUOW's Jeremy Richards.
