History Upside Down: The Roots of Palestinian Fascism and the Myth of Israeli Aggression Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the United Nations, on university campuses, and among a growing number of our most prestigious Western newspapers, the historical record has been rewritten so thoroughly that Israel is seen as the worst of the oppressive Western occupiers of the Third World. So successful has this propaganda campaign been that Palestinian spinmeisters and their apologists have effectively declared the Israelis, a people living in the shadow of the Holocaust, to be "Nazis." How could this happen? How did unacceptable anti-Semitism morph into justifiable anti-Zionism, and odious Jew-hatred turn into a politically correct Israel-hatred? In History Upside Down, David Meir-Levi exposes the ideological DNA of Palestinian nationalism and its ludicrous "alternative" histories, revealing how Nazi fascism gave the Arab world's amorphous hatred of the Jews an intellectual structure and how Soviet communism masked its genocidal intentions with the mantle of national liberation. Meir-Levi then explodes the cornerstone myths that the Palestinian movement created--myths that rationalize and celebrate decades of unremitting terror and genocidal ambitions, turning the history of the Middle East upside down and inside out, making the victim the aggressor and the aggressor the victim. History Upside Down is the first wave in a counterattack against this Arab war on history. It rejects the idea that the basic situation in the Middle East has changed since the United Nations first established the Jewish state and the Palestinian state that would have stood alongside it. Sadly, argues Meir-Levi, the issue in the Middle East is today what it has been since the Muslim invasion in the seventh century: the Arabs' hatred of the Jews.

Book News Annotation:

In this appropriately titled work, Meir-Levi (a professor of Middle Eastern history at San Jose State U. and a senior project manager at the David Horowitz Freedom Center) seeks to deflect criticism of Israel's violations of international law and human rights in the Occupied Territories and elsewhere by presenting a highly selective portrait of the history of Palestinian nationalism that highlights any connections to Nazism, Communism, and/or Islamism and thus places the entirety of the blame for Israeli-Palestinian conflict on irrational Palestinian anti-Semitism while simultaneously eliding and denying any genuine Palestinian political, social, and economic grievances.

Synopsis:

Forty years ago, a significant part of the political, religious, intellectual, and terrorist leadership of the Arab world declared an all-out war against the documented history of the Middle East and America's role in the Muslim world. Arab PR professionals and spinmeisters have rewritten the record for political and propaganda purposes. Blaming the Victim is the first wave in a counterattack against that Arab war on history.
