Ten Myths About Israel
By

Rating
Ilan Pappe is one of the most outspoken and radical thinkers writing on the history of Israel. In this groundbreaking and controversialbook he examines ten of the most contested ideas concerning the origins and identity of the contemporary state of Israel. Once andfor all he explodes the myths that justify the rights of the Israeli state, asking, * Was Palestine an empty land at the time of the Balfour Declaration? * Were the Jews a people without a land? * Is there no difference between Zionism and Judaism? * Is Zionism not a colonial project of occupation? * Did the Palestinians leave their homeland voluntarily in 1948? * Was the June 1967 War a war of 'no choice'? * Is Israel the only democracy in the Middle East? * Were the failed Oslo negotiations of 1992 the PLO's fault? * Was it a question of national security to bomb Gaza? * Is the Two States Solution still achievable? Written for the general reader, this book will prompt a huge, and necessary, debate.

Reviews

"Ilan Pappe is Israel's bravest, most principled, most incisive historian." --John Pilger "One of the most prominent Israeli political dissidents living in exile ... He is also one of the few Israeli students of the conflict who write about the Palestinian side with real knowledge and empathy." --Avi Shlaim, Guardian "Along with Edward Said, Ilan Pappe is the most eloquent writer of Palestinian history." --New Statesman "Ten Myths About Israel is a useful primer for people just becoming familiar with the Palestinian liberation struggle - but it is far more than that. It is also a valuable tool for veteran organizers seeking to explain cogently and simply how Israel's foundational myths and ongoing propaganda perpetuate the oppression of the Palestinian people." - Rod Such, Electronic Intifada "This book is an absolute must for an interested public, the political and the media class to understand what Israel is all about." - American Herald Tribune
