Toronto, Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010. Award-winning Israeli journalist Gideon Levy has been a journalist with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz since 1982, has been covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in particular the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, for over 20 years. He is a frank critic of Israel's policies toward the Palestinians. Gideon Levy discusses the findings of his most recent book, The Punishment of Gaza, a select compilation of his Ha'aretz columns from 2006, through to the aftermath of last year's Gaza massacre in which he tracks Israel's progressive abandonment of diplomacy in favour of a policy of provocation and the exercise of extreme military power. Also included later is a Question and Answer Period. http://cjpme.org
