A Fatal Attraction:
Colonialism and Apartheid
Join us on Zoom
for a special gathering
with Dr. Rashid Khalidi
Tuesday, June 16
2-3 pm Eastern time
Professor Khalidi's 2020 book:
"A landmark history of one hundred years of war waged against the Palestinians from the foremost US historian of the Middle East, told through pivotal events and family history.
"...Original, authoritative, and important, The Hundred Years' War on Palestine is not a chronicle of victimization, nor does it whitewash the mistakes of Palestinian leaders or deny the emergence of national movements on both sides. In reevaluating the forces arrayed against the Palestinians, it offers an illuminating new view of a conflict that continues to this day."
~ Metropolitan Books, Macmillan Publishers
