An Interview with Professor Ilan Pappe

- 35 min -
Professor Ilan Pappe is one of Israel's acclaimed New Historians who debunked the idealized Zionist version of the Jewish State's history and exposed that massacre, rape and dispossession of the native Palestinians that attended its birth. Prof. Pappe is an advocate for a single secular democratic state in historic Palestine with equal rights for Jews and Arabs. His outspoken views put him out of favour with the Israeli mainstream and recently, he has decided to leave Israel to teach at Exeter University. This interview was conducted shortly after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon by Muhammad Idrees Ahmad of Spinwatch and Rena Bivens of the Glasgow University Media Group.
