College Park, MD: Your Tax Money to the Israeli Military?
Thursday, April 15th 2010 6:00-8:00PM
Is the U.S. really "pressuring" Israel? What's the deal with Israeli settlements? What do they have to do with us? IPS Fellow Phyllis Bennis will discuss the recent flap between the Obama administration and the Israeli government, the $30 billion of U.S. military aid, and the changing discourse on Israel-Palestine across the United States.
Phyllis Bennis is the author of Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Primer. She is speaking as part of an event put on by the UMD Students for Justice in Palestine, called Palestinian Solidarity Week (April 12-19). It brings together students, activists, advocates, sympathizers, and humans and who are appalled at the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Palestine and the illegal occupation of its people. PSW aims to raise awareness about the conflict at large, as well as highlight specific issues. Each day of the week will feature a different event or speaker.

For the last five months, she has lived and worked in Gaza, sharing a local family's home, helping indigenous NGOs communicate to the outside world, writing for news services such as Truthout and InterPress Service, and volunteering with the International Solidarity Movement. Now she is back in the States, and she will share a view of Gaza that most people here don't hear about. This will be her first "report back."
