Voices of the Middle East and North Africa

Voices of the Middle East and North Africa – October 19, 2011

In this week’s program, Khalil Bendib is in conversation with prominent Israeli scholar Ilan Pappé about his brand new book The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel. This book provides a vivid and incisive historical analysis of the Palestinians living in Israel.

 Ilan Pappé, is Professor of History at the University of Exeter in the UK, where he is also Co-director of theExeter Center for Ethno-Political Studies, and Director of the Palestine Studies Centre. He is author of the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, A History of Modern Palestine, The Israel/Palestine Question, and is a long time political activist.

During the program, we also listen to the mesmerizing voice of Lebanese vocalist Oumeima El Khalil from her latest release Ya.
