Tanya Reinhart is an Israeli scholar who teaches at Tel Aviv University and is known both for her work in linguistics and as a sharp critic of the Israeli government. She is a regular columnist for Yediot Aharonot, Israel’s largest-circulation daily newspaper and the author of Israel/Palestine: How to End the War of 1948. Joel Beinin teaches Middle East History at Stanford University and was previously president of the Middle East Studies Association.
Reinhart and Beinin will discuss the historical context of the Israel/Palestine conflict as well as the current situation, and present compelling arguments that the only solution is for Israel to withdraw from its decades-long military occupation of Palestine.
“Tanya Reinhart’s Israel/Palestine is the most devastating critique now available of Israel’s policy toward the Palestinian people. …it deserves to be read by every American who, unknowingly perhaps, has been subsidizing Israel’s 35-year military occupation. Today Palestinians face either ethnic cleansing or apartheid. Reinhart compellingly shows why and how both must be opposed.” -Edward Said
