Ask Me Anything: Emily Harris On Everything Mideast

July 2, 2014

Just over a year ago, NPR’s Emily Harris packed up and moved to Jerusalem where she covers plenty of politics and everything else related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It also means stories about an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman running for office, a program that trains children how to be Facebook users, ice-cream sellers working amid tear gas and — coming up Thursday on Morning Edition — innovative Palestinian architecture that looks like a spaceship landed in the ancient city of Jericho.

She’s also been covering the story of three Israeli teenagers who disappeared in the West Bank and were found dead this week in a story that’s still unfolding.

Before taking up the NPR reins in Israel, Harris covered central and Eastern Europe and reported from Iraq during the first two years of the war that began there in 2003.

Harris is currently in Washington and is ready to take your questions. You can join the conversation here.
