The Markaz with support from Jewish Voice for Peace-LA  and LA Jews for Peace presents a MENA-X (Middle East/North Africa Exchange) program featuring independent Canadian-Israeli journalist and filmmaker David Sheen. Returning to the center on his latest tour (coordinated by the Northern California chapter of the International Solidarity Movement), Sheen talk is “The Bullet, the Ballot and the Boycott,” an in-depth look at Israeli incitement to racist violence, the focus of his on-the-ground reporting for the past five years.

Sheen will describe how top Israeli political and religious leaders use dehumanizing discourse to inspire vigilante attacks toward Palestinians, Africans and other non-Jews, especially during the 2014 assault on the Gaza Strip. His talk will include material that Sheen presented at the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in Brussels, as well as new information never before been made public in English. Watch an excerpt, Inside Israel’s Race Wars, Thieves in the Temple(4 minutes) leading into additional material. Read related op-ed in Mondoweiss.

As citizens, taxpayers and voters, it’s crucial that we have the means to bypass the mainstream media and listen to alternative voices reporting real news, beyond sensationalist headlines, to inform us of what is happening on the ground. To that end the Markaz hosts two ongoing series, MENA-X and Progressive Conversations on Israel/Palestine and U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East, cosponsored by LA Jews for Peace and other participating associations. If you would like to suggest a speaker or a topic, contact Rime Yasin, rime-at-themarkaz.org. This presentation made possible with contributions by Anonymous, Nader Barakat et alia.
