Ten Myths About Israel (Paperback)
by Ilan Pappe
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.
