DERSHOWITZ AT SOAS

For those who may be interested and are located in or around London, Alan Dershowitz is speaking at SOAS tonight. Here's the lowdown, with thanks to Engage:
European Center for Jewish Students and SOAS Jewish Society present:

Zionism is Not Racism: The Case for Israel

Professor Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School

Author of "The Case for Israel" (2003) and "The Case for Peace: How the Arab-Israeli Conflict Can be Resolved " (2005)

"When the Palestinians and the Muslim states really want a Palestinian state more than they want to eliminate the Jewish state, there will finally be a two-state solution…"

Chair: Anthony Julius, Visiting Professor, Birkbeck College and Consultant, Mishcon de Reya

Wednesday 8 March 2006 at 6pm
Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre
SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square WC1
Free, no advance booking, first come first seated
It wasn't so long ago that SOAS hosted the rather unpleasant Norman Finkelstein; at least this should provide some balance.

The real shame is that they couldn't appear together. Judging by this account of a debate between Dershowitz and Finkelstein's chum Chomsky, it could have been quite a spectacle.
