Zionism is held together by a series of myths, says Rose (sociology, Southwark College and London Metropolitan U.), a package of false notions that undermine its claims on the Jewish religion and Jewish history, its rationale as a response to Europe's anti-Semitism, and above all its justification for its aggressive and very dangerous political posturing in the land

Overview

Zionism is held together by a series of myths, says Rose (sociology, Southwark College and London Metropolitan U.), a package of false notions that undermine its claims on the Jewish religion and Jewish history, its rationale as a response to Europe's anti-Semitism, and above all its justification for its aggressive and very dangerous political posturing in the land of Palestine. He addresses both claims made by Zionist ideologues, and widely held beliefs that have become part of Zionist folklore. Distributed in the US by University of Michigan Press.
