Shattered Hopes: Obama's Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace

Josh Ruebner, National Advocacy Director, U.S. Campaign to end the Israeli Occupation, will give a talk and sign copies of his book Shattered Hopes: Obama's Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace.

"Ruebner thinks we're "at a historical juncture at the 'demise of the paradigm' of the current peace process and that this opening is allowing for 'new creative opportunities.' He points to the explosive growth of the BDS movement and the Israel lobby’s inability to confront it."

Excerpt from a Mondoweiss article (link HERE) by Adam Horowitz about a Ruebner visit in Georgia and how the movement for Palestinian rights is gaining ground.
