AMEU Link: “Al-Tamimi et al v. Adelson et al.”
The Link has used various venues to tell the story of the Palestinian catastrophe. In “Captive Audiences” by Thomas Suarez it was a musical recital; in “The Grief Counselor of Gaza” by Dr. Eyad Sarraj it was psychiatric care; in “Mirror, Mirror” by Maysoon Zayid it was standup comedy.
In the current issue it is a Washington, D.C. courtroom.
In March of last year, a group of Palestinians sued a group of billionaires. Who are these plaintiffs and these defendants? What are the charges? And what has become of the lawsuit during the past year?
This issue’s feature author, Fred Jerome, addresses those questions. Fred is a veteran journalist whose articles and op-ed pieces have appeared in Newsweek and The New York Times. He also authored our July-August, 2015 Link “Kill Bernadotte.” Fred has taught journalism at Columbia University’s School of Journalism and New York University. His most recent book is “Einstein on Israel and Zionism.”
The Link, published on a bi-monthly basis, is Americans for Middle East Understanding (AMEU)’s primary education and information tool. More than 175 issues of The Link have followed since the first issue appeared in 1968.
