Israeli historian laments ongoing oppression of Palestinians

The dissident Israeli historian, Professor Ilan Pappe, author of several publications including the book, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, and most recently, The Forgotten Palestinians, spoke to a packed lecture theatre at Sydney University on September 16. The event, organised by the Sydney Peace Foundation, Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine and Leichhardt Friends of Hebron, marked the beginning of Pappe’s Australian lecture tour, which included the Opera House’s Festival of Dangerous Ideas and the Edward Said Memorial Lecture at Adelaide University.
