Speaker: Mr Gideon Levy
Journalist with Haaretz newspaper.

Lecture title:
The first 50 years: Israeli society and the occupation

Gideon Levy is an Israeli journalist, writing opinion pieces and a weekly column for the newspaper, Haaretz, often focusing on the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. A notable journalist on the Israeli left, Levy has said that his views on Israel's policies toward the Palestinians developed only after joining Haaretz.

"When I first started covering the West Bank for Haaretz, I was young and brainwashed," he said in an interview. "I would see settlers cutting down olive trees and soldiers mistreating Palestinian women at the checkpoints, and I would think, 'These are exceptions, not part of government policy.' It took me a long time to see that these were not exceptions—they were the substance of government policy."

The Lecture is jointly presented by the Australian Friends of Palestine Association (AFOPA) and the School of Social Sciences at the University of Adelaide.
