“Myth, Illusion, and Israel’s Democracy” to hit Chicago

Like most campuses, the University of Chicago is a hotbed for unsubstantiated and state-sponsored rhetoric when it comes to “discoursing” about Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Most recently, Michael Oren addressed students and faculty earlier this month, arguing for further settlement building and an invasion of Iran. Although he repeatedly referenced the idyllic nature of democracy, he failed to acknowledge Israel’s non-democratic and discriminatory policies that seek to further segregate Arabs, particularly Palestinians. The University of Chicago ate it all up.

But the record must be set straight once and for all. The idea of a democratic Israel is a myth, a mere illusion. And award-winning journalist Max Blumenthal will be the one to say it.

If you’re in the Chicagoland area, please join Blumenthal for a talk about the realities of a democracy that refuses to serve Arabs, particularly those under its military jurisdiction. This talk is long overdue.
