Edward Said London Lecture: Amira Hass
Booking: The Preventable: Israeli Fantasies and Techniques of Population Expulsion by Amira Hass ‘The Oslo process precipitated an internal compromise in Israel:between the urge to make Palestinians vanish and the realization that thegeo-political circumstances do not permit a repetition of the 1948 massexpulsion of Palestinian civilians. This compromise is best expressed in thesystematic policy of creating Palestinian enclaves, which successive Israeligovernments have meticulously pursued in tandem with the internationallysponsored negotiations process. The enclaves best exemplify the way in whichIsrael divorces the Palestinians and their very existence from land, history,space and movement – both mentally and physically. As Israeli politics losesits last traces of shame and sheds the final, tattered remains of its liberalpretensions, the danger of more audacious mass expulsions of thePalestinians from their land is growing.’ – Amira Hass. Amira Hass will present the 2018 Edward W. Said LondonLecture. Hass hasbeen a correspondent for the Israeli daily Haaretz in the Occupied PalestinianTerritory since 1993. She lived in Gaza between 1993 to 1997 and, since then,in the town of Al-Bireh in the West Bank. She is the author of two books: Drinking the Sea at Gaza (Metropolitan,2000) and Reportingfrom Ramallah (Semiotex, 2003). Theannual Edward W.
