"State of Terror: How terrorism created modern Israel."
A talk by Tom Suárez

Saturday 25 November 14.00 / 2 PM
White Rock Hotel (opposite pier)
Hastings TN34 1JU.

Free admission. Free refreshments.

Tom Suárez's book is the culmination of several years of research based primarily on British government source documents held by the National Archives (Kew), relating to Palestine during the four decades between the Balfour Declaration (1917) and the Suez Crisis (1956).

Tom Suárez's principal thesis is that Zionist terrorism "ultimately dictated the course of events during the Mandate, and it is Israeli state terrorism that continues to dictate events today."

Meeting: Local Jewish Activist Speaks On Israel and Palestine

Thanks to Leah Levane and everyone who came to the meeting. Leah visited the Sumud Freedom Camp near Sarura in the Hebron Hills as part of a predominantly Jewish group to show solidarity with Palestinians under occupation. One memory that will stay with Leah is the sight of the 'IDF' sabotaging local Palestinians' water supply by pouring stones into several of their water cisterns.
The meeting finished with the showing of the film '100 Balfour Road' (after a few technical problems!). Review of 100 Balfour Road.

Miko Peled.

Miko recently came to prominence in the corporate media for what he didn't say at a fringe Labour Party conference meeting. "Peled's grandfather was one of the signers of the Israeli founding documents. His father was a soldier in the war which led to the creation of Israel." "Miko Peled is a voice of sharp criticism of Israel and Israeli policies." A useful article about Miko Peled: Rick Sterling: A Silenced Israeli Critic.
