Those interested in Palestine/Palestinians and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict should note the Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University. The Center runs a series of events throughout the year, the calendar is accessible at the website address above. A few days ago one such event brought together two distinguished Palestinian-origin novelists, Ms. Suad Amiry and Ms. Susan Abulhawa. This was a literary event but with a Palestinian-oriented audience it could not help but spread into a discussion of history and politics.
