PALESTINE: A STUDENT’S VIEW
The Maine Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers will welcome Amer Sami Abusada as guest speaker at the March 16 meeting.
Amer is a non-Muslim, 17-year-old exchange student at Bonny Eagle High School, Buxton, Maine. He comes from Beit Sahour, Palestine, a small city not far from Bethlehem.
After exposure to the American view of events in Palestine, gathered largely from press reports, Amer sensed the need to present another view and to correct misconceptions. His presentation includes pictures and videos, and will touch on the culture and life style of the people, history of Palestine, the political situation, and what he calls “the wall of discrimination.”
The meeting is open to the public and will be at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, March 16, 2013 at the Brick Store Museum Program Center, 2 Dane Street, Kennebunk, ME. For information call 207-967-4298 or 207-985-2392.
