Format: Hardcover
This is a brilliant collection of essays and interviews by Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappé, the well-known Israeli historian. Edited by Frank Barat, it comprises eight pieces: The fate of Palestine: an interview with Noam Chomsky; two essays by Ilan Pappé: Clusters of history: US involvement in the Palestine question, and State of denial: the Nakbah in Israeli history and today; `Exterminate all the brutes': Gaza 2009, by Chomsky; Blueprint for a one-state movement: a troubled history, by Pappé; The ghettoisation of Palestine: a dialogue with the two authors; The killing fields of Gaza 2004-2009, by Pappé; and A Middle East peace that could happen (but won't), by Chomsky.

In June 2008, Israel and Hamas signed a ceasefire agreement, which Israel broke when it sent forces into Gaza on 4 November, and again when it launched its full-scale invasion on 27 December. Israeli forces used US-made white phosphorus shells against civilians, a war crime. In January 2009, the President of the UN General Assembly called Israel's attack on Gaza genocide. Israel still imposes its vicious blockade of Gaza: an ongoing war crime.

Israel could defend itself better by ending its criminal actions in occupied territories and accepting the two-state solution urged by the vast majority of the world (and vetoed at the UN by the USA ever since 1976). The Arab League, Hamas, Iran, Hezbollah, the Palestinian National Council all back the two-state solution (i.e., recognising Israel's right to exist). Only the USA, Israel and a few Pacific island US dependencies oppose it.

Chomsky's latest book gives a reader a realistic insight into Israeli Palestinian conflict you wouldn't hear in Western main stream media. Chomsky points out at constant breach of countless UN resolutions and contempt of Geneva conventions by the state of Israel and its reckless use of military machine against defenceless Palestinian people all with a quiet approval of mighty USA with obedient European Union in tow. Its a shame on all us in Europe and our impotent leaders in particular that we allow such a cruel and brutal behaviour against one impoverished nation that has no means for self defence to face the high-tech army of Jewish state. From reading this book you will come to a conclusion that Israel doesn't have any interest in solving this conflict any time soon and current situation where Israeli people live in democracy and relative peace where Palestinians, especially those in Gaza strip on the other hand face constant oppression, humiliation and terror as their hopes for a better future are slowly fading away.

In these dialogues, Noam Chomsky, recently voted the worlds greatest intellectual, along with Ilan Pappe, exposes the atrocities, brutalities and murder inflicted on the Palestinian people by the Israeli state. This is a fantastic , erudite and clear account of how the people have suffered, and how the Israelis have repeatedly defied international law to continue their shameful occupation of Palestinian lands and further expel the Palestinian people.

The usual suspects of the right and hard-line pro-Israelis all despise Chomsky because they are unable to contradict his immaculately sourced, factual accounts of the abuse of the Palestinians at the hands of Israel, but the usual cries of anti-Semitism sound desperate, hollow and fraudulent in the face of such a clear and intelligent analysis.

I read this on a return train journey from Southampton to Derby! The authentic historical perspective filled so many gaps thus deepening my understanding of the complex situation of the Middle East. It also empowered me to discuss with more hope, as I now have a firmer foundation of knowledge and the wider perspective of the authors which allows me to envision a change...one day!

Format: Paperback
‘Gaza in Crisis’ systematically tries to demonize one of the sides of a long and complex conflict. This alone suggests that it should be taken very carefully.

1) It is most likely that the authors are manipulating reality. Since the beginning in fact, the authors state one of their main theses, give some information that supports it, and then proceed to repeat it countless times throughout the book. Then, in the last fifth of the text, the same thesis is repeated adding further information. I argue that this further information has the potential to put said thesis into question (more details and ‘spoilers’ in Annex I). This raises questions on the kind of ‘filter’ used in all of the other claims of the authors.

2) The authors often claim that one side of the conflict systematically filter and distort reality to support their ends. However, the authors themselves are doing exactly the same thing (cfr. Point 1). In such a clumsy way that the proofs of this doing are inside their own work. My brain is feeling insulted.

3) The authors strongly disagree with each other on the role of the US policy. If for Author 1 the US is the master holding Israel’s leash, the other considers the US more or less like the muscular imbecile that follows the lead of the short evil guy (Annex II). It is obvious that no more than one of these interpretations can be correct.

4) I personally found many of the theses of the authors very difficult to support (Annex III)

To summarize: the book is biased, emotional, technically imprecise, inconsistent and hypocritical. It is by far the worst book on a conflict that I have ever read.
