While US policy towards Israel remains unchanged, the long-standing assumption that most Americans – even most Jewish Americans – agree with that policy no longer holds. In the media, in popular culture, in universities and particularly within the Jewish community, there are signs of major shifts. In conversation with MEC Director Professor Fawaz Gerges, writer, analyst and activist Phyllis Bennis discusses these changes with reflection on her own political evolution from Zionist youth leader to anti-war internationalist and Palestinian human rights activist.
Two of Phyllis Bennis’ books will be for sale at the event:
Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Primer (£8)
(The primer is updated through Obama policy and the UNESCO vote)
Ending the US War in Afghanistan: A Primer (£8)
Location: CLM 3.02, Clement House, London School of Economics
