ILAN PAPPÉ at Town Hall
Presented by DIOCESE OF OLYMPIA, EPISCOPAL BISHOP’S COMMITTEE FOR ISRAEL/PALESTINE with support from KAIROS PUGET SOUND COALITION.
On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Occupation of Palestine, in the wake of the 1967 war, Israeli historian Ilan Pappé, long a fierce critic of the Occupation and Israeli treatment of the Palestinian people, is here for this special Seattle talk, “Prospects for Peace in Israel-Palestine.” His newest book, just out, is Ten Myths About Israel (Verso). Other relatively recent books include The Idea of Israel, On Palestine (with Noam Chomsky), Gaza in Crisis, The Forgotten Palestinians, and The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
“One of the most prominent Israeli political dissidents living in exile … He is also one of the few Israeli students of the conflict who write about the Palestinian side with real knowledge and empathy.” —Avi Shlaim, The Guardian.
“Ilan Pappé is Israel’s bravest, most principled, most incisive historian.” —John Pilger.
