Yousef Bashiris a Palestinian American from the Gaza Strip and the son of Khalil Bashir, a highly respected educator. Still suffering the effects of a near- catastrophic injury at the hands of an anonymous Israel Defense Forces soldier, Yousef made his way to the United States, where he earned a BA in International Affairs from Northeastern University and an MA in Coexistence and Conflict from Brandeis University. Now living in Washington, DC, he has worked on Capitol Hill and served as a member of the Palestinian Diplomatic Delegation to the United States. Yousef is an accomplished author, a vigorous advocate of Israeli-Palestinian peace, and a much sought-after public speaker.
