On Tuesday, April 28th, Norman Finkelstein will present his lecture titled:
“ROOTS OF THE ISRAEL-PALESTINE CONFLICT, THE GAZA MASSACRE, AND PROSPECTS FOR PEACE”
The Palestine Solidarity Committee was originally planning for this event to include an opposing perspective represented by another speaker. However, the pro-Israel supporters on campus were not interested in participating. We still hope to have a diverse audience at the event, and look forward to organizing a debate for the university community in the future.
Norman G. Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics at Princeton University. For many years he taught political theory and the Israel-Palestine conflict. He is currently an independent scholar.
Finkelstein is the author of five books which have been translated into more than 40 foreign editions including: “Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History,” and “Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict.” He has just completed a new book entitled “A Farewell to Israel: The Coming Break-up of American Zionism,” to be published in 2009.
