Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book provides one of the best introductions to the Israel/Palestine conflict. It reveals what mainstream media in the West seeks to conceal from the public: that Israel has an apartheid regime which has been obsessed with demographic racism and ethnic cleansing for six decades. The book provides an indispensable context for understanding the origins and consequences of the conflict. It also makes by far the most compelling case for peace with justice-not apartheid." —Nur Masalha, Reader in Religion and Politics, St. Mary's University College (UK), and author of The Bible and Zionism (2007)

    Useful introduction to the Israel/Palestine conflict

    Journalist Ben White has written a very useful introduction to the Israel/Palestine dispute. He first looks at a definition of apartheid under international law and notes some points of comparison with apartheid South Africa. In Part 1 he explores how the Zionist settlement in Palestine developed, how the Zionist leaders were clear about their intention to expel the indigenous Palestinians (Ben Gurion wrote in 1937, "We must expel Arabs and take their place") and how this was achieved in the Naqba of 1948. He examines the notions of 'a land without a people' and looks at the 'transfer' (the Zionists' euphemism for ethnic cleansing) - the expulsions of 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, achieved through massacres like Deir Yassin. Part 2 shows how Israeli apartheid has been maintained for the last 60 years, legally and practically, and what this has meant for the day to day lives of Palestinians. Israel is a state for only some of its citizens: only its Jewish citizens are nationals. By Israel's Basic Law, it is 'the state of the Jewish people'. Its illegal occupation of Palestine entails land theft, colonisation, ethnic separation, discrimination (Chaim Weizmann, Israel's first President, wrote, "There is a fundamental difference in quality between Jew and native"), illegal settlements, separate 'bypass roads', checkpoints, the illegal Separation Wall, detention, torture, home demolitions, military brutality, the bantustisation of Palestine, and the killing of children (200 in the first Intifada, 545 in the second). White concludes, "Perhaps the core of Israeli apartheid as it affects the country's Palestinian citizens is the 'exclusionary land regime', a reflection of the historic objective of political Zionism: the land of Palestine without the Palestinians." In Part 3, he looks briefly at Palestinian and international resistance to Israeli apartheid. Finally, he answers some frequently asked questions.

    The Case for the Palestinians

    If you've read Alan Dershowitz's The Case for Israel, you should read this one as well. It presents the Palestinian side in a concise and seemingly well documented and balanced manner. It rebuts much of the standard Zionist propaganda and accepted wisdom. The pictures and interviews with Palestinians displaced by Israel provide an intimate, human touch.
