Ten Myths About Israel (Paperback)

Regular price $32.00

by Ilan Pappe

Description

The myths and reality behind the state of Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict--from "the most eloquent writer on Palestinian history" (New Statesman)
.
The outspoken and radical Israeli historian Ilan Pappe examines the most contested ideas concerning the origins and identity of the contemporary state of Israel.
The "ten myths"--repeated endlessly in the media, enforced by the military, and accepted without question by the world's governments--reinforce the regional status quo and include:

.

  • Palestine was an empty land at the time of the Balfour Declaration.
  • The Jews were a people without a land.
  • There is no difference between Zionism and Judaism.
  • Zionism is not a colonial project of occupation.
  • The Palestinians left their Homeland voluntarily in 1948.
  • The June 1967 War was a war of 'No Choice'.
  • Israel is the only Democracy in the Middle East.
  • The Oslo Mythologies
  • The Gaza Mythologies
  • The Two-State Solution
.
For students, activists, and anyone interested in better understanding the news, Ten Myths About Israel is another groundbreaking study of the Israel-Palestine conflict from the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
