N catastrophes are concealed from the public eye And yet Ilan Pappe unveils one such crime has been erased from the global public memory the ethnic clean. Zionist views have been overwhelmingly influential in the United States The Story of Israel that I place in uotation marks to indicate its mythological nature has been presented repeatedly but most famously in the novel and movie Exodus It is the story of victims struggling to an empty land where they make the desert bloom and stand proudly with weapons in hand shouting never againThis appealing heroic justice loving scenario is a fabrication Ilan Papp an Israeli Jew has in this book presented the facts upon which true justice must be basedFrom its inception late in the 19th century mainstream Zionism considered early on as a kind of lunatic fringe within Judaism put forth the clearing of the indigenous people the Arabs living in Palestine as a necessity for the creation of a Jewish majority there So it has happenedZionism struggled before WW2 because not enough Jews were interested in going to Palestine but the holocaust put the movement over the top not only providing the necessary influx but also creating a feeling of guilt among the nations of the world not least Germany that was leveraged into the creation of the State of Israel and its financing and militarization since read The Holocaust Industry by Norman FinkelsteinThis book is a detailed accounting of the horrors that occurred the forced evacuation of hundreds of villages executions of villagers over 31 events are considered massacres blowing up houses or setting fire to them with the residents inside military attacks on unarmed civilians pure terror by the folks who loudly denounce terrorThe parallel to what happened in Kosovo is startling particularly in view of the NATO bombing that took place to stop the activity in the former Yugoslavia compared to the lack of any effort to stop the cleansing of Palestine In fact the United States cannot do enough to help the process as it continues to this dayIsrael like the United States is a country founded on injustice The process could take place hidden away in the vastness of the American west in the 19th century but with Israel it has been uite obvious all along Shockingly the world has stood by impotent in the face of the special relationship between the US and Israel fostered by the political power of Zionists in the United States This history is a blot on both countries The ethic cleansing has proceeded only because of US protection and not a few American Jews hold dual citizenship having taken up residence in the Israeli settlements specifically to take the land from the nativesAs the Senate confirmation hearing on Chuck Hagel demonstrated conclusively Congress is the puppet of Zionism Senators fell all over themselves uestioning Hagel about his views on Israel while all other matters were secondaryAmericans should wake up to the reality of Israel a county that is injustice institutionalized a living example of everything the American civil rights movement was out to end The founders of Israel state were full and mostly eager participants in the eviction of the Palestinians the destruction of their homes and villages and the deliberate erasure of the evidence continued to this day by the planting of forests by the Jewish National Fund All the facts are evident in the archives and in particular the diary of David ben Gurion who happily viewed empty villages flushed of the Arab residents This history is an outrage that any person Jewish or not should find revoltingThere is only one future for Israel as a democracy for all people not a place for one group the Jews to ride herd on others This will come as surely as it did in South Africa The BDS boycott divestment and sanctions movement is a great way to make progress in thisWhen one s nation does wrong only a few citizens will have the courage to point it out My deepest respect to Professor Papp who was hounded out of Israel and now teaches in Great Britain for this outstanding documentary work My deepest apologies to the Palestinian people who have endured decades of injustice and are readily labeled terrorists be those ignorant of the past and the people

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Sing The Ethnic Kindle of the Palestinians in But why is it denied and by whom The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine offers an investigation of this myster. An insightful and deeply disturbing account of the events leading up to 194748 in the ArabIsraeli war Prior to reading this book I had always accepted the official Israeli viewpoint of an Israeli David fighting an Arab Goliath Israel s constant wars against Arab nations after that seemed to be a continuance of that period in historyUntil I read The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine that is I ve been a recent convert to the Palestinian cause after watching footage of Israeli tanks and gunships in action against stone throwing youths And yet I still held onto the official line although the view was somewhat jadedPappe is an Israeli and well ualified to write his new history and it is a history that will disturb He reveals that the push to drive the Arabs out of Palestine was not the accidental and unfortunate result of a war of liberation but a dedicated plan of ethnic cleansing set into stone before the end of the British Mandate That this was done a mere three years after the world was shown the results of the Jewish Holocaust is a damning blow to the Zionist cause and a sad indictment on Ben Gurion Begin Sharon and the other Israeli heroes History it seems is written by the victors and in this age of media spin it s refreshing when someone pulls back the curtain to reveal the sad and ugly truthYou will find it tough going but if one wants to understand the roots of the ArabIsraeli conflict then this book is a good starting point It s well researched and has copious endnotes maps and a chronology at the end He unashamedly takes the side of the Palestinians and makes no apology for that one can almost feel the rage as he writesWith Israel moving further and further to the right Abbas courting the UN and the incomprehensible ignorance of American politicians from both sides of the fence when it comes to the Middle East Pappe s work is a veritable sledge hammer A patriot is not someone who merely waves a flag a trained monkey can do that a patriot is one who loves their country so much they are prepared to stand up and call the powers that be to account for their lies and deceit Pappe has alienated himself from his homeland by refusing to cave in to moral cowardice And criticism of Israel has always been a touchy point after WWII but criticising Israel doesn t make us anti Semites neo Nazis or even Jew haters After all we criticise Western governments and no one bats an eyelid it s called free speechAs already mentioned it s a sad book to read but a necessary book if you want to understand the root causes of the Middle East conflict

    The author's thourough and honest discourse is both immaculate and sobering Pappe proves authoritatively that the actions by a group of supposed Zionists in Israel beginning in 1947 constitute ethnic cleansing This perpetrated atrocity serves as a prototype for ethnic cleansing similar to that by the Nazis in Germany According to Pappe “More than half of Palestine’s native population close to 800000 had b
