There will be a lecture tomorrow night by Benny Morris. Here’s the official blurb about it courtesy of Sam Bernhardt ’10:
Professor Benny Morris: “The First Arab-Israeli War” – Benny Morris is one of Israel’s most distinguished, yet also one of its most controversial historians. His groundbreaking books deal with the sixty years of conflicted relations between Israeli’s and Arabs. Professor Morris will be discussing his new book on the first Arab-Israeli War of 1948. A reception will follow the presentation.

The lecture promises to be interesting at the least and horribly controversial at most. Read more about Benny Morris on Wikipedia.
