ISRAEL – THE NEW APARTHEID – Professor Ilan Pappé`s talk

On 9th February 2010 at St Matthew’s Church, Cheltenham, leading Israeli historian Professor Ilan Pappé, now exiled to the UK, gave a talk entitled “ISRAEL – THE NEW APARTHEID?”
The talk lasted 40 minutes and was followed by 1 hour of questions. To listen to this insightful, uncompromising historian please click on the link below:

Ilan Pappé
Before he left Israel in 2008, Pappé had been condemned in the Israeli Parliament; a minister of education had called for him to be sacked; his photograph had appeared in a newspaper at the centre of a target; and he had received several death threats.
Pappé said that he found it “increasingly difficult to live in Israel” with his “unwelcome views and convictions.” In a Qatar newspaper interview explaining his decision, he said: “I was boycotted in my university and there had been attempts to expel me from my job. I am getting threatening calls from people every day”
John Pilger has described Pappé as “Israel`s bravest, most principled, most incisive historian”

  1. I have just come across your website and feel disappointed to have missed Professor Pappe’s talk. I have lived in Egypt and spoken with many Palestinian refugees who lost everything, however, no Palestinian has had any compensation from the Israeli government.
