EVENT REPORT: Author Evening with David Cronin, discussing ‘Europe’s Alliance with Israel’

  • PDF

 IHRC were privileged to welcome journalist and author David Cronin to its new bookshop, gallery and information centre in London, UK on January 12, 2011.  The Brussels based writer addressed the guests on his findings regarding the little known topic of how much the European Union and individual member states co-operate with and aid the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Popular opinion tends to think of Europe as being one of the main critics of Israeli acts against the Palestinians, yet Cronin’s meticulous account in his book, which he overviewed in his presentation, is that the reality is actually starkly different.  Highlighting security, economic and cultural co-operation in an exhaustive discussion of the topic, Cronin provides incontrovertible evidence that the European Union is complicit in occupation and human rights abuses on a grand scale as perpetrated by Israeli forces and their government.

Cronin took questions from the attendees and signed copies of his book.  A video of the event will shortly be posted to the IHRC Youtube and Vimeo channels, as well as this site.

Signed copies of the book Europe’s Alliance with Israel Aiding the Occupation, published by Pluto Press can be bought from the IHRC website here.

Don’t miss the next Author Evening at the IHRC Bookshop on 9 February 2011, when Lawrence Archer and Fiona Bawdon join us to discuss their book Ricin! The Inside Story Of The Terror Plot That Never Was.  More details of the event can be found here.
