Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the The Electronic Intifada - electronicintifada.net- reads from his recent book, "The Struggle for Justice in Palestine" at the Evanston Public Library (EPL). The author/reading, jointly sponsored by a local peace group had been cancelled just days prior to its scheduled date, when the library decided that the program should not proceed without the "balance' of
a pro-Israel speaker at the event. The announcement by the author - http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/evanston-public-library-bans-my-book-talk-palestine - and the organizing of the local peace and activist community resulted in a fire-storm of criticism that took on national dimensions. The library reversed its decision to cancel and the event went ahead as planed.

The opening comments refer to the controversy and the intent of the EPL to go forward with additional events that would provide an opportunity for library patrons to hear someone speaking about Palestine and resistance to the occupation from a Palestinian perspective.

The author addresses Israel's need to slaughter Palestinians to maintain a "Jewish" majority and the cost that Zionist leaders are willing to extract from Israeli youth to achieve that end.
