Ilan Pappé & Mark Rosenblum: Palestine at the United Nations

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue


As the United Nations’ General Assembly debates (and possibly votes on) statehood for Palestine, the Episcopal Bishops Committee on Israel /Palestine presents two international voices to discuss and explore the issue in a talk titled “Palestine at the United Nations: Confronting the Israel-Palestine Question: Elusive Answers , Enduring Hope.” Israeli professor Ilan Pappé (pictured), author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, is considered one of Israel’s “new historians,” and professor Mark Rosenblum, founder of Americans for Peace Now, is an historian at Queens College, where he is director of the Center for Jewish Studies and head the Center for Ethnic and Racial Tolerance.

Tickets are $15 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/838-3006, and at the door beginning at 6 pm, when a book-signing begins.

    I'm a low income senior living in a building managed by the Seattle Housing Authority and would love to attend on September 19th. Unfortunately, $15 is more than I can afford. Why such a high price.
