Mohammed Abed, Assistant Professor, CSULA.
His recent research has focused on ethical and conceptual issues raised by political violence, especially suicide terrorism, war, torture, and genocide.
David Klein, CSUN, Organizing Committee member of the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel
Professor Klein will explain the goals of USCACBI, and discuss what the world wide Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement may hope to achieve.
Offered as an alternative to the story told by the mainstream media, this educational event will put Israel”s destruction of the Gaza Strip in a historical context, showing how the recent war is not an isolated incident, but part of a long and carefully planned project aimed at eliminating both the history and actuality of the Palestinian people.
We will discuss our responsibilities as U.S. citizens and how we can best effect change.
Israel”s recent assault on the people of Gaza is not simply “retaliation” for rocket attacks. When the democratically elected Hamas government came to power in 2006 a devastating blockade was imposed on the Gaza Strip, preventing adequate supplies of food, fuel and medicine from reaching the residents.
80% of the residents of Gaza are refugees from the 1948 war, when 750,000 indigenous Palestinians fled in fear. None of the refugees have been allowed to return, in violation of international law.
