Gaza: Israel's war and the Goldstone Report

A panel discussion dedicated to examining the reality and consequences of Israel’s war and siege of Gaza. What do we know about Gaza 2008-2009 today after several investigations by various human rights organizations? Is the head of the UN fact-finding mission Justice Richard Goldstone right in arguing (as he did recently) that a ‘reconsideration’ of his UN report, which found evidence of war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity, is now in order?


  • Norman G. Finkelstein, author of This Time We Went Too Far: Truth and Consequences of the Gaza Invasion
  • Rashid Khalidi, author of The Iron Cage, Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies at Columbia, and Co-Director of CPS
