Bethlehem Library Bans Peace Group After Talk On Palestine

On December 5, Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace hosted Israeli peace activist Miko Peled at the Bethlehem Public Library. Despite complaints from supporters of Israel, the library board at an emergency meeting the night before allowed the talk to continue. However, the library has now banned the peace group from meeting at the library for a year, allegedly because Peled sold some books from his car in violation of their policy. Supporters will attend the Jan. 8 board meeting to urge them to end the ban. Trudy Quaif of BNP discusses the situation with Mark Dunlea of Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
