Prospects for Peace in Israel/Palestine: Facts and Fiction
Seattle, WA  Dr. Ilan Pappé, internationally known historian and author, will address Prospects for Peace in Israel/Palestine: Facts and Fiction at 7:00 pm on Monday, May 22, at Town Hall, Seattle.  A native son of Israel, Dr. Pappé is a former senior lecturer of history and political science at Haifa University; since 2008 he has been a member of the academic staff at the University of Exeter, U.K. and is presently Director of the European Center for Palestine Studies.

Author of 12 books on related subjects, Dr. Pappé is well-known for his scholarship and commentary on Middle East, especially the history of Israel and Palestine. The Modern Middle East: a Social and Cultural History (2014) is a textbook on the urban, rural, cultural, and gender histories that influence current political and economic developments in the region.

Pappe's meticulous research examines the socio/political outcomes of the creation and nature of the State of Israel.  In his groundbreaking and controversial work, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2006) Pappé traces the roots of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and he raises troubling moral issues around the injustice done to the indigenous Palestinians who were forced to migrate or live as an occupied people in their own land. His struggle for academic freedom led him to leave Israel for England in 2007.

Hope for peace?  Avi Shlaim, respected Israeli author of The Iron Wall states: Pappé advocates a peaceful humanist and socialist alternative to the Zionist idea in the form of a bi-national state with equal rights for all its citizens. (The Guardian, 2014)

Sponsored by the Diocese of Olympia, Episcopal Bishops Committee for Israel/Palestine and the Kairos Puget Sound Coalition, Dr. Pappé will also speak to staff and students at Seattle Pacific University and the University of Washington.
