Studying Zionism and Israel in the PLO (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Studying Zionism and Israel in the PLO
Abstract: The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), founded in 1964, became famous, or infamous, over the decades primarily for its militants and its politicians. There was another group in the organization, however, that was less well known but no less important: PLO researchers. In 1965, the PLO established a Research Center in Beirut, Lebanon, dedicated to carefully analyzing what it referred to as "the Palestine Problem," a crucial element of which was "knowing the enemy." This meant researching Jews, Judaism, Zionism, and Israel. Professor Gribetz introduces the PLO Research Center and discuss the importance of this group of activist researchers and intellectuals on the history of the PLO.
