Jonathan Cook, Nazareth-based reporter, discusses his book \'Blood and Religion: Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State\' at the School of Oriental and African Studies Despite attempts to portray itself as a democratic and peace-loving state, Israel\'s policies are driven by the fear of an imminent Palestinian majority that will spell the end of the Jewish State.

Jonathan Cook\'s dispatches from Israel have described attempts at creating a Palestinian-free \'Greater Israel\', built on military, economic, political and cultural suppression of Palestinian populations, both within the state of Israel and the Occupied Territories.

The author discusses the impact of land grabs and manipulations of the Green Line, human rights abuses, and the entrenchment of racism across Israel\'s political and social spectrum in the wake of the Second Intifada, arguing that a new wave of Palestinian resistance is drawing closer.

This event is in association with SOAS, The 1990 Trust and The Pluto Press.
