With a presentation by Norman Finkelstein
This session will (1) go over some of the basics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, (2) discuss the “special relationship” between the US and Israel and the responsibilities of US socialists that emerge therefrom, (3) review DSA’s recent resolution on the Palestinian struggle, and (4) review a debate within the left on the best tactics to support the struggle of the Palestinians for liberation from the brutal occupation.
