Publisher Comments:

The renowned Israeli historian revisits the formative period of the State of Israel. Between 1947 and 1949, over 400 Palestinian villages were deliberately destroyed, civilians were massacred, and around a million men, women, and children were expelled from their homes at gunpoint. Denied for almost six decades, had it happened today it could only have been called "ethnic cleansing".

Decisively debunking the myth that the Palestinian population left of their own accord in the course of this war, Ilan Pappe offers impressive archival evidence to demonstrate that, from its very inception, a central plank in Israels founding ideology was the forcible removal of the indigenous population. Indispensable for anyone interested in the Middle East.

Synopsis:

In this controversial new book, a prominent Israeli historian at Haifa University revisits the formative period of the State of Israel. Decisively debunking the myth that the Palestinian population left of their own accord during the War of Independence, he offers archival evidence to demonstrate that a central plank in Israel's founding ideology was the forcible removal of the indigenous population. This book is a passionate plea to acknowledge the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 as the root cause of the ongoing Palestine-Israel conflict.

Al Troner, May 8, 2010 (view all comments by Al Troner)
The author failed to address a basic question - if Jews are not indigenous to "Palestine" (a geographic term introduced from Latin by the Romans), then who is? The Arab invaders of the 8th century? The Crusaders? The Ottoman Turks? A big failing in an interesting though flawed argument.
