Ali Abunimah is a world renowned Palestinian journalist and writer. He is co-founder and editor of the Electronic Intifada, has written hundreds of articles on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, including his first book One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. His forthcoming book, The Battle for Justice in Palestine (Haymarket Books) has been endorsed by the likes of Joseph Mossad and in the case of Alice Walker as:
“In The Battle for Justice in Palestine it is the voice of Ali Abunimah, fierce, wise – a warrior for justice and peace – someone whose large heart, one senses, beyond his calm, is constantly on fire. A pragmatist but also a poet. This is the book to read to understand the present bizarre and ongoing complexity of the Palestine/Israel tragedy.”
This event is part of NYC Israeli Apartheid Week and will be a stop on Ali Abunimah’s speaking tour for his latest book. In addition the event will be a chance to bring the growing discussion on the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions solidarity movement to The New School, through one of its most eloquent advocates. With the recent move by the American Studies Association to endorse the call for the Cultural and Academic Boycott of Israel, and the resulting backlash from as high up as the New York State legislature, the time to engage with these discussions is now.
