and Book Signing

WHEN: Wednesday, October 26, at 7:00 p.m.

WHERE: Westwood United Methodist Church

10497 Wilshire Blvd. (at Warner, West of Beverly Glen)

Los Angeles 90024

WHO: Renowned Israeli Historian Ilan Pappe speaking on

Israel and Palestine: The Peace Charade and

book signing

Professor Mahmood Ibrahim will introduce Ilan Pappe

Sonali Kolhatkar, host of KPFK 90.7 FM’s Uprising will MC

The distinguished Dr. Pappe is a senior lecturer in the department of Political Science at Haifa University and the Chair of the Emil Touma Institute for Palestinian Studies in Haifa. He is also the Academic Director of the Research Institute for Peace at Givat Haviva. He has written extensively on the politics of the Middle East, and is well-known for his revisionist interpretation of Israel's history and as a critic of its policies towards the Palestinians.

Born in Haifa, Ilan Pappe concentrated on Middle Eastern studies in high school and then served in intelligence in the Israeli army. He earned his doctorate from Oxford University, where he studied international relations and Middle Eastern studies. Pappe is one of the founders of the ''new history'' in Israel, together with Benny Morris and Avi Shlaim, and is considered the theoretician of this group, which re-examined the history of the state's birth, relying on new documents discovered in the archives, among other things.

In early 2002, Pappe was threatened with dismissal by Haifa University because of his support for Teddy Katz, a Jewish graduate student at the university whose dissertation had brought to public attention the massacre, by Israeli forces in 1948, of a large portion of the population of the Arab village of Al Tantura, on the coast south of Haifa. A petition in support of Dr. Pappe, was signed by several thousand intellectuals from many countries around the world, including many from within Israel. After the international protest, the university withdrew the threatened dismissal proceedings.

''As a humanist my sympathy is with the victims. If I had written about Jews in Europe, or African Americans under slavery or Jim Crow, I would be accused of being pro-Jewish or pro-African. Since I am writing about modern Palestine, I am accused of being pro-Palestinian. What amazes me is that people who claim to be humanists that don't come to the same conclusions as I do, people who don't conclude that Palestinians have been victims of colonization and expulsion, people who don't have sympathy with them.'' --Ilan Pappe
