Israel’s murderous Operation Protective Edge has ended, with the worst death toll of Palestinians ever. And yet, Israeli cabinet members, and even Zbigniew Brzezinski, are seeing this as a defeat for Israel. 

What is the sum-up of the Gaza assault? What will be the consequences of this? 
  • For the Two State solution? 
  • For the Palestinian leadership? 
  • For the BDS (boycott/divestment/sanctions) movement? 
  • For the movement of the Palestinian diaspora? 
Come to a discussion to understand the lessons of the Israeli war on Gaza, the Palestinian resistance, and how to build the anti-war and solidarity movement here.
