Controversial author Peter Beinart is coming to Montreal to outline his views on the future of Israel, as described in his recent book the Crisis of Zionism.
A Rhodes Scholar and former editor of The New Republic, Beinart argues that a democratic Israel must end the occupation of the West Bank and provide equal justice for all Israeli citizens. Failure to do so is alienating many Western Jews, especially younger people, he says.
He will be speaking on Wednesday, October 24, at 8 p.m. at Knox Hall, 6225 Godfrey, a short street off Grand Blvd. between Sherbrooke and Monkland. 514-696-5991.
