Jeff Halper: How does Israel get away with it?
Two events organised in Scotland by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign:
‘How is Israel able to sustain a half-century occupation over the Palestinians, a people it violently dispossessed in 1948? Why does the international community tolerate an unnecessary conflict that not only obstructs efforts to bring stability to the wider Middle East but also severely disrupts the international system as a whole?
‘Jeff Halper is an American-born anthropologist, author, lecturer, and political activist who has lived in Israel since 1973. He is co-founder and Director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD).
‘His new book, War Against the People delves into these questions and provides insight into Israel’s disturbing high-tech weaponry military, security & surveillance systems that were tested & perfected on Palestinians.
‘The book is a timely reminder that fundamental human rights are being compromised & abused by the capitalistic, political & military elite around the world. This should be a subject of concern for everyone at a time of exceeded exasperation for Palestinians & activists alike who seek direct change.
‘Join [Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign] in listening to Jeff on how progressive activists can take this new information and begin to integrate into a more effective movement of resistance & counter-hegemony against this new age of arms trade & mass surveillance.’
