01.23.2008 | Indymedia UK

On Wednesday 23rd January, The Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS) hosted a workshop entitled "How can UK Residents Help the Palestinian Cause?" The guest speaker was Norman Finkelstein, and this audio is a record of the event. The first part consists of Finkelstein's Introductory remarks, and Part 2 is a recording of the workshop, and a short Q&A session.
  1. Finkelstein's introductory remarks - mp3 (58MB)
  2. How can we help the Palestinian cause? - mp3 (79MB)
During the workshop, Norman Finkelstein recommends 4 books as good introductory texts to the conflict. They are:

1) Noam Chomsky - Fateful Triangle
2) Robert Fisk - Pity the Nation
3) Benny Morris - Righteous Victims ("good up until 1956")
4) Zeev Maoz - Defending the Holy Land

If you're thinking of reading them, try ordering them through your public library.
