Norman Finkelstein in Kitchener-Waterloo, Hosted by Students for Palestinian Rights
This past Thursday, February 17, 2011, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East and Students for Palestinian Rights (of which I am vice president) brought the ever popular, controversial and exciting Norman Finkelstein to Kitchener-Waterloo to talk about Palestine, past, present and future. He covered topics ranging from the 2000 and 2006 Israeli wars in Lebanon and their resulting defeats at the hands of Hezbollah, the 2008 22 day massacre in Gaza, the summer 2010 Freedom Flotilla raid, the potential coming third war with Lebanon and the consequences, for Israel, of the recent revolts shaking the Arab World, particularly Egypt.
Owing to the Zionist generated fallout from his somewhat infamous last visit to our campus in 2003 (here), subsequent visits have had to be held off campus. This time the good folks at Trinity United Church just off of downtown Kitchener were kind enough to accomodate us. Below are some picture highlights of the event!
