September 9, 2015: The Daily Utah Chronicle – Palestinian Rights Activist to Speak at Hinckley Institute of Politics (Description note, “Susan Abulhawa, a Palestinian-American writer and a human rights activist, will host the next installment of the Hinckley Institute’s Pizza and Politics..Noman Khan, a U graduate and member of Students for Justice in Palestine, said he thinks this lecture is a good way for the U to show another side in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and their neutrality in global politics. “Americans always stand for freedom and justice but, on the other hand, support Israel for its occupation and inhumane treatment of Palestinians,” Khan said. “It is important to raise awareness at the U and show them the Palestinian side of the story.”… Thirty-two countries in the United Nations do not recognize or interact with Israel as a country. Conflict in the area emerged when European powers founded Israel in 1948; Israelis claimed the land was promised to them by God, and Palestine maintained the settlers were invading the land they had lived on for centuries… “As a Pakistani,” Khan said, “we have always supported Palestinian people, peace in Palestine and always advocated for the return of Palestinian people back to their land.”)
