“Whither the Levant?” The Crisis of the Nation-State: Lebanon, Israel and Palestine
Norman Finkelstein and other noted Israel bashers “convene” at the UC Irvine Student Center on Saturday, January 31, 2009 “for a day-long conference the future of the region under Obama-Biden”. Please note: this conference is being held on Shabbat and is heavily loaded with Israel detractors, thereby precluding any serious discussion or debate on the issues.
Organized by Levantine Cultural Center and the University of California, Irvine, the Middle East Studies Student Initiative (MESSI). Cosponsored by the Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies/UCI, American Friends Service Committee, LA Jews for Peace and supported by Diane and Jeanette Shammas, Lawrence Joseph, Kanan Hamzeh, Casey Kasem, Bana Hilal, Asad Farah and the Salaam-Shalom Educational Foundation.
