Event

Palestine at the United Nations ~ Confronting the Israel Palestine Question
   The United Nations General Assembly will be debating and possibly voting on statehood for Palestine during September.  The Episcopal Bishops Committee on Israel / Palestine brings two international voices to discuss and explore this issue.

   Israeli Professor Ilan Pappé,  "is considered one of Israel's "New Historians" who, since the release of pertinent British and Israeli government documents in the early 1980s, have been rewriting the history of Israel's creation in 1948, and the corresponding expulsion or flight of 700,000 Palestinians in the same year," (Wikipedia).   Formerly a senior lecturer in political science at the University of Haifa (19842007) , Pappé  is currently  a professor with the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the UK. Professor Pappé  is author of "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine", "Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians" (with Noam Chomsky), "Out of the Frame: The Struggle for Academic Freedom in Israel", and more.

   Professor Mark Rosenblum is an historian at Queens College, New York City,  where he is Director of the Center for Jewish Studies and the head of and the Center for Ethnic and Racial Tolerance.  He is also Director of the Michael Harrington Center and its Middle East Project.. .  Professor Rosenblum has combined academic research with direct involvement in Mid East conflict resolution since the 1980s.  He has appeared as political analyst on radio and major TV shows, and has been quoted in leading news papers.  Professor Rosenblum was a founder of Americans for Peace Now (see www.peacenow.org) and the Israeli-Palestinian Youth Dialogue program.  He is currently completing two books, "Two Jerusalems, One Peace: Capitalizing On Reality," and "From the Oslo Back Channel to the Al Aksa Intifada: The Elusive Peace," as well as authoring numerous articles and academic publications.
