      >
      > Date: Tuesday February 1, 2005
      >
      > Time: 7pm

      > Venue: Room D602, Clement Building, London School of Economics, Houghton
      > Street, London WC2A 2AE
      >
      > Free entry, all welcome
      >
      > Events over the last few years have re-focused attention on the nature of
      > Zionism. Demographic trends and Israeli practices, most notably
      > settlement
      > expansion and barrier construction, have called into question the
      > viability
      > of the two-state solution and, thus, Zionism itself. Furthermore, the
      > refusenik movement against Israeli involvement in the occupied
      > territories,
      > while welcome, has brought about the myth that Zionism was a benevolent
      > movement until Israel's expansion in 1967.
      >
      > To discuss Zionism's past, present and future, we are proud to feature two

      > John Rose is author of "The Myths of Zionism", and teaches Sociology at
      > Southwark College and London Metropolitan University. Rose was a student
      > at
      > the London School of Economics during the great radical upheaval of the
      > late
      > 1960s. He arrived as a Zionist in 1966 and left in 1969 as a committed
      > pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist. Why? "Simple," he says, "I heard the
      > Arab
      > case for the first time and it was, and remains, unanswerable."

      > Norton Mezvinsky is co-author, with the late Israel Shahak, of "Jewish
