Dr. As’ad Abu Khalil: The Case Against “Israel” as part of Vancouver’s Israeli Apartheid Week

SPHR-UBC marked Israeli Apartheid Week with a series of events, one of which was a keynote address by Dr. As’ad Abu Khalil, a Lebanese American Professor of Political Science at California State University and the creator of the Angry Arab News Agency blog. The March 1/13 event entitled “The Case Against ‘Israel’” shed light on very important questions facing Palestinians and their supporters. Voice of Palestine presents Dr. Abu Khalil’s speech in its entirety as he discusses the following points – Does the apartheid state have a right to exist? Did it ethnically cleanse 750,000 Palestinians and destroy over 500 villages or is this just a Palestinian myth? And why does this Zionist entity have to maintain its aggression and occupation of Palestine? Is this structure of systemic and systematic colonialism, oppression and occupation of stolen land viable or is it doomed to failure?
