18000 Homes Destroyed - 101 Homes Rebuilt

Dr Jeff Halper of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (icahd.org) will speak in Bridgehampton Thursday evening at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse, 977 Sag Harbor-Bridgehampton Turnpike.

Also Dr. Halper will speak in Bellport at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 51 Brown's Road at 7 pm Friday.

The title of Dr. Halper's talk is "Peace or Apartheid, Indeed".

He will outline the nature of the present occupation of the West Bank which Israel intends to be permanent, explaining how a "Matrix of Control" is used to isolate Palestinians from their land, from each other and from Israelis.

Halper promises also to talk "about where we are at this moment, teetering on the edge of apartheid" and why he believes "that a two-state solution permitting a truly sovereign and VIABLE Palestinian state has been eliminated by Israel's settlement enterprise"

He will put forward a proposal for a confederation of middle eastern states, after establishment of a Palestinian state. He will invite discussion from the audience.

Halper's organization has been re-building Arab homes destroyed in Israel and the Palestinian territories by Israeli authorities.
