In light of the milestones of 2017 (100 years after the Balfour Declaration, 69 years since the 1948 nakba, 50 years since the 1967 naksa), Josh Ruebner draws on personal anecdotes and reflections, historical documents, and legal analyses to address the question: is Israel a democracy or does its separate and unequal treatment of the Palestinian people render it an apartheid state?

Please join us for a lecture delivered by Ambassador Husam S. Zomlot, Head of The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States, and Strategic Advisor to Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas.

Miko Peled, author of The General’s Son, will present his latest book about the Holy Land Foundation Five in which he discusses the miscarriages of justice involved with the case and the devastating effects the case had on the lives of the men convicted and their families.
