Book Description

4 Nov 2010
From the targeting of schools and hospitals, to the indiscriminate use of white phosphorus, Israel's conduct in 'Operation Cast Lead' has rattled even some of its most strident supporters. In this book, Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappe survey the fallout from that devastation, and place the massacre in Gaza in the context of Israel's long-standing war against the Palestinians. "Gaza in Crisis" is a rigorous, historically informed and much-needed analysis of the situation and will be welcomed by all those eager for Chomsky's insights into yet another political catastrophe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine studies of Israel's war on the Palestinians 29 Nov 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaza in crisis 12 Feb 2011
By mturzak
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chomsky cuts through israeli propaganda 11 Nov 2010
By M Pablo
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaza in Crisis 21 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars GAZA..... the brutal subjugation of the arabs 3 Aug 2014
By DryRot
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book offers a detailed look at the awful consequences of the wests unwavering support for Israel. A refreshing change from the biased sanitised flim-flam served up by the BBC, Fox news,CNN and ITN. Chomsky cuts through the web of Israeli propaganda and skilfully breaks down barriers to clear understanding. I was left enlightened and also deeply ashamed that my government and the taxes I pay are used to sustain this grossly unjust Zionist occupation and expansion. #FreePalestine

5.0 out of 5 stars Depressing but necessary read 25 April 2011
By Al
Format:Hardcover
This is a short concise book which is impossible to read without a sense of moral outrage. The treatment by Israel, USA and the western countries of the Palestinians has been woeful, embarrassing and cowardly. Both authors write clearly and with passion on this dreadful conflict.

Unfortunately an end to this conflict seems as far away as ever leaving one despond and as to the future of the long suffering residents of the occupied territories.

This book is a call to arms and I thoroughly recommend it.
