CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, NORTHRIDGE PRESENTS

A lecture by Ilan Pappé University of Exeter

THE FALSE PARADIGM OF PARITY AND PARTITION: REVISITING 1967

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 4:00 P.M.
USU, Northridge Center

This talk will focus on the Israeli policy before and after the June 1967 war. Two theses would be argued through this revisit of the 1967 events: the first is that one can understand fully Israeli policies in that year only within the context of the overall Israeli strategy in 1948 and onwards. This means that the war of 1967 was a direct continuation of the 1948 Nakbah and not a separate event. The second argument will be that Israeli strategy, including the devise of what was later named as ‘the peace process’, was formulated already in 1967 and has not changed ever since that year and until today. This strategy it will be argued in the talk is the main obstacle for peace in Israel and Palestine.

Ilan Pappé’s research focuses on the modern Middle East and the history of Israel and Palestine. Recent publications include:Peoples Apart (2012); The Bureaucracy of Evil (2012); The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinian minority in Israel (2011); The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2006).
