THIS TIME WE WENT TOO FAR
For the Palestinians who live in the narrow coastal strip of Gaza, the December 2008 Israeli invasion was a nightmare of unimaginable proportions: in the 22-day-long action 1,400 Gazans were killed, several hundred on the first day alone. More than 6,000 homes were destroyed or badly damaged. The cost of the destruction and disruption of economic life, in one of the world’s poorest areas, is estimated at more than $3 billion.
Professor Norman Finkelstein will be coming in from New York City to deliver two lectures addressing the Gaza invasion of 2008. ‘Truth of the Gaza Invasion’ and ‘Consequences of the Gaza Invasion’ will describe the reasons behind and the fallout of this event in a way that only Professor Finkelstein can.
