Ilan Pappé Speaks on Anniversary of al Nakba

Ilan Pappé Speaks on Anniversary of al Nakba:

"On the 19th of June 1967- that is about 9 days after the West Bank and the Gaza Strip came under Israeli control- the Israeli Government made its first and most important decision about the future of the West Bank and Gaza Strip..."

Manchester, England. 6th June 2008. Israeli historian Ilan Pappé speaks at a rally sponsored by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign on the anniversary of al Nakba (the catastrophe). The catastrophe was the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians carried out by the Zionists to establish the state of Isreal in 1948. Pappé exposed the suppressed history of this episode in his book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.

Pappé was formerly an academic at Haifa University. He now teaches at Exeter University in England."
