Israel Demolishes Homes in Occupied Territories
Many progressive Jewish-Israelis fear a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians is all but dead. Jeff Halper is an Israeli anthropologist and director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions. He’s touring the U.S. to discuss the peace process and the Israeli government’s decades-long practice of tearing down the homes of Palestinians accused of terrorism or offering terrorist support. Halper will tell us why he believes the idea of a one-state solution, once unthinkable, is starting to gain traction among many left-wing Jewish-Israelis. His 2015 book is War Against the People: Israel, the Palestinians and Global Pacification.
