Always insightful, always compelling, Dr. Norman Finkelstein, historian and author of eight books, including most recently Knowing Too Much: Why the American Jewish Romance With Israel is Coming to an End, will come to Westwood on Thursday, April 25, 7 pm. "Israel, Palestine and the Future of Peace" is a public forum organized by LA Jews for Peace with support from the Levantine Cultural Center and open to everyone. Finkelstein will present the arguments laid out in Knowing Too Much. Traditionally, he notes, American Jews have been broadly liberal in their political outlook; indeed African-Americans are the only ethnic group more likely to vote Democratic in US elections. Over the past half century, however, attitudes on one topic have stood in sharp contrast to this group's generally progressive stance: support for Israel. There will be a public Q & A and book signing following the presentation.
