The media tends to distort the information. Many people cannot tell what is true and what is not. Many Arabs and Jews ask questions about how the state of Israel was created. They ask questions about who supported its creation, the role of the US, UK, and what the Arabs did to resist. They also ask about what happened in Palestine before and after 1948.
This book was written by two British men back in 1975, a journalist and a British MP, describe what happened behind closed doors before and after 1948 in the British Labour Party and parliment, role of the media, the US, and the Arab involvement. They expose hidden pacts, secrets, media bias, and much more.
This book is an excellent history book. If you have a strong desire to learn the history of the Israeli-Arab conflict, then read this book. Hard to find, therefore, you have to buy it used. But it is worth buying it in any condition you find it in.
