The Institute for Middle East Understanding and O/R Books invite you to an exclusive PRESS BRIEFING on the highly-anticipated new book about the Gaza Freedom Flotilla:

Midnight on the Mavi Marvara: The Attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and How it Changed the Course of the Israel/Palestine Conflict

While UN and Israeli investigations into the June 1st attack on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla are ongoing, the global impact of that night is already being felt. The killing of nine peace activists aboard the Mavi Marmara, including one American citizen, was more than just front-page news. From the break in Turkish-Israeli relations to the upcoming flotilla being organized by American citizens, the book's authors argue that the dynamics of the Israel-Palestine conflict have changed for good.
