Lunch with Robert Fisk - this Tuesday
The Great War For Civilisation – The Conquest of the Middle East
Journalist Robert Fisk has been based in the Middle East for the last 25 years, reporting from the world’s worst troublespots. This is his first-person account of 50 years of bloodshed and tragedy in the area, from the Israeli oppression of the Palestinians to the shock and awe of the current war against Iraq.
Fisk tells the story of the growing hatred of the West by millions of Muslims, the West’s cynical support for the Middle East’s most ruthless dictators and America’s ever more powerful military presence in the world’s most dangerous lands, as well as its uncritical, unconditional support for Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.
