David Sheen, investigative journalist, Messiah Mode: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Israel’s biggest racists
Emory University- Harland Cinema605 Asbury Circle, Druid Hills, GA 30322 https://www.facebook.com/events/2635120059851534/
David will be speaking about the rise of the Kahana movement, the Israeli governments’ responsibility in bringing the extremist out again, and the connections with Palestine and Palestinian struggles.
More about Messiah Mode talk: The far-right is in the ascendancy all around the globe. In Israel, factions once excoriated for being too racist even by Israeli standards have been welcomed into the halls of power by the government itself. Why has Likud rehabilitated the most reactionary US-born rabbis and their local acolytes at the forefront of Israel’s eliminationist movement? How have their efforts to turn the whole of Israel/Palestine into a single, racially pure religious state escaped the attention of the mainstream media, for decades? Come and hear a shocking report from inside Israeli society by the distinguished local journalist and human rights defender David Sheen.
Both these events above are Cosponsored by Emory Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace-Atlanta, Joining Hands for Justice in Israel/Palestine, and ATL Radical Art.
