Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire

Sunday November 15 @ 2:00 pm
Join us at Nonstop’s Millworks home [305 North Walnut Street] with our guest, Richard Becker speaking about his book, Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire.

Richard 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. He is the Western Regional Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism).

Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire provides a sharp analysis of historic and current events in 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 regional role as a watchdog for U.S. interests, to present-day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution.

About Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire:

“Becker gives us the most sharply focused and penetrating analysis we have of the real dynamics at work in the continuing persecution of the Palestinian people. He calls for international unity among all people to end this tragic injustice. Hear his call and join in the struggle.”

—Ramsey Clark, former U.S. attorney general, former litigation attorney for the Palestine Liberation Organization

“Becker foregrounds what others usually set aside: the integral role of U.S. imperialism, with the Zionist State as an essential partner. His approach connects the Palestinian struggle with a universal perspective, which gives the people dignity and strength.”

—Joel Kovel, author, “Overcoming Zionism”

“A must-read for anyone seeking to understand the Palestinian cause.”

—Samera Sood, executive board, Palestinian American Women’s Association

“Becker’s book provides clarity about the injustices that Palestinians have courageously resisted, and why we must end the last vestiges of colonialism in the 21st century.”

—Imam Mahdi Bray, executive director,  Muslim American Society Freedom

“Finally, a breath of fresh air, and analysis, on the question of Palestine… This is a must read for anyone interested in the U.S. geo-political project and in understanding Palestine.

—Dr. Jess Ghannam, professor, University of California, San Francisco
