A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion

“The Land Speaks Arabic”


SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Richard Becker, author of the new book “Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire.” Becker is a noted writer and commentator on Middle East affairs and has visited the Middle East on numerous occasions for conferences, fact-finding delegations and humanitarian relief missions. His book provides a sharp analysis of the struggle for Palestine—from the division of the Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the founding of Israel and its role as a watchdog for U.S. interests, to present-day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution. The narrative is firmly rooted in the politics of Palestinian liberation. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the screening.


“The Land Speaks Arabic” documents the late 19th century birth of Zionism and its repercussions for Palestinians. The film is detailed with original source documents, Zionist leaders’ quotations, rare archival footage, testimonies of witnesses and interviews with historians. All help to illustrate that the expulsion of the indigenous Arab population from Palestine was far from an accidental result of the 1948 war. This award-winning film shines a spotlight on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement. A film by Marse Gargour, 61min., 2008.


Sponsored by A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism)
