Upcoming NYC Event w/ Gidon Levy, Christopher Hitchens and Elias Khouri

The Israel Forum and Remarque Institute present:
What Happens Now?
Israel And The Palestinians
After Gaza, Sharon, And Hamas

With Gidon Levy, Christopher Hitchens, and Elias Khouri
This Thursday, March 9
8:00 p.m.

NYU Kimmel Center
60 Washington Square South,
Rosenthal Pavilion, 10th Floor
Doors open at 7:30. No reservations required,
but photo I.D. required for entry to building.

From the original invitation:
After a tumultuous year on both sides of the conflict, Israelis and Palestinians face extraordinarily difficult choices, challenges, and questions. Scholars and journalists are torn between cautious optimism and bitter pessimism. What does the future hold for Israel/Palestine? Will the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza help bring peace? Has Sharon’s illness created a new political reality? Does Hamas’ victory signal the end of the peace process? And how are these events analyzed in the United States and elsewhere?
The Israel Forum is pleased to welcome Gidon Levy, editorialist and commentator for Ha’aretz; Christopher Hitchens, independent author and journalist; and Elias Khouri, Global Distinguished Professor of Middle Eastern Studies at New York University. The discussion will be presented by Tony Judt, director of the Remarque Institute and Erich Maria Remarque Professor of European Studies at New York University.

  1. Hey Asaf,
    I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but the grad students are still on strike at NYU. Who are the folks putting together this panel, they need to know they’re crossing a picket line to hold it.

  2. The Remarque Institute is Judt’s deal, and it focuses on the relationship between “Europe and America” Last time I checked, Israel wasn’t in either place. Just goes to show that behind every one of these panels is the agenda of the guy in charge, who in this case, is just a little bit off the deep end. This’ll be a doozy.
