Talk and book launch with Prof. Jeff Halper (Nobel Peace Prize Nominee)
Rare visit by international peace activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Professor Jeff Halper, to Cork, Limerick and Dublin.
Dr. Jeff Halper (below) will speak and launch his new book ‘War Against The People – Israel, the Palestinians and Global ‘Pacification’ at the following locations in Ireland:
Tuesday, January 19th at 8pm Clarion Hotel Cork
Wednesday, January 20th at 7.30pm, The Absolute Hotel, Limerick
Thursday, January 21st at 7.00pm, The Academy Plaza Hotel, Dublin
Dr. Jeff Halper has been a peace and human rights activist for more than three decades. Born in Minnesota in the United States, he participated in the civil rights and anti-Vietnam War movements of the 1960s. Halper immigrated to Israel in 1973 after attending rabbinical school and resisting military service in the Vietnam War.
In Israel, Halper taught anthropology at Haifa and Ben-Gurion Universities. His academic research has focused on the history of Jerusalem in the modern era, contemporary Israeli culture, and the Middle East conflict. He is the author of Between Redemption and Revival: The Jewish Yishuv in Jerusalem in the Nineteenth Century. During his mandatory Israeli military service, he refused to bear arms or serve in the occupied Palestinian territories. In 1997, Halper co-founded the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions (ICAHD) to challenge and resist the Israeli policy of demolishing Palestinian homes.
As the Coordinating Director of ICAHD, Dr. Halper has organized and led nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience against Israel’s occupation policies and authorities. He has put his own personal safety on the line, facing bulldozers in front of Palestinian homes and confronting Israeli soldiers. He also organizes Israelis, Palestinians, and internationals to help rebuild demolished Palestinian homes.
For this work, the American Friends Service Committee nominated him, along with Palestinian activist Ghassan Andoni, for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006. Dr. Halper has also served on the steering committee of the United Nations Conference on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.
