A presentation by Israeli Human Rights Activist, Dr. Jeff Halper:
"Exporting the Occupation: Israel and the Global Pacification Industry"
-- Dr. Halper, on a tour of the U.S. from Israel, will focus on the production, distribution and use of Israel’s high-tech weapons systems and “counterinsurgency” weaponry and tactics as a profitable by-product of the Occupation that has spread worldwide.
Born in the United States, Jeff emigrated to Israel in 1973. An anthropology professor, he has taught at universities both in Israel and abroad. In 1997 he co-founded ICAHD, a grassroots political and human rights organization that uses Israel's policy of demolishing Palestinian homes (25,000 in the Occupied Territories since 1967) as a vehicle for resisting the Israeli Occupation.
Dr. Halper is the co-founder and Director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, an Israeli peace and human rights organization. In 2006, Dr. Halper was nominated by the American Friends Service Committee for the Nobel Peace Prize with Palestinian intellectual and activist, Ghassan Andoni. For more information, contact:
