5.0 out of 5 stars The nub of recent conflict is the Middle East, and Irael/Palestine in particular. Here is why.
In all the misinformation and propaganda broadcast over the recent slaughter in Gaza, here is a lucid account of the comflict and it's causes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book let down by writing style
The other reviews are all correct that this is a fascinating book with great research and well documented sources, in examining the real truth and underlying flows of US and Israeli policy towards Palestine from the 1948 initial conflict to the recent genocidal level attacks made on the Palestinian populace in Gaza (the book was published in 2011). As such it is a real...

This review is from: Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians (Hardcover)
This quite densely written book presents a good review of the facts. While it does not claim to be as comprehensive as, say, Robert Fisk's monumental account, it provides a good continuation of that scholar's work. Fisk's book ends around 2000, and this continues the sad and depressing story up to the horrendous attack upon Gaza, or should we say the latest of a long line of attacks upon Gaza. He also makes the very valid point that the 'International community' tends to talk about 1967 as the 'established borders' and the validity of a 'two-state' solution. This ignores the fact that the Palestinians would be left with an unworkable rump of their own country, as well as still being in the political grip of Israel. The constant support of the US in this is underlined. The book rightly reasserts the single state alternative, except that the single state would not treat the majority of its population as serfs. Secondly it reminds us that the creation of the Israeli state in 1948 was an act of ethnic cleansing, every bit as obscene as the actions in the Balkan wars. People were forced from their homes and villages by the army and murdered if they stayed. All-in-all it paints a depressing picture which seems to be lurching ever onward to WW3.

5.0 out of 5 stars the sad truth, 26 July 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book brings together the analyses of two of the leading commentators on the subject of Gaza, and particularly of the run-up to and execution of Operation Cast Lead.The unrelenting hatred of the Israeli rulers and their obedient military executioners is, of course, directed overwhelmingly
a. against virtually defenceless victims, in the military sense, and
b.with the aim of destroying any viable Palestinian state.
These matters are not just on record for those who seek out references, as Chomsky and Pappé do, but is manifest through the actions of the Israeli authorities, backed, sadly, by the great majority of the Jewish population of Israel, it would seem. With the historian's analysis of the background, and Chomsky's characteristically pungent notes on the current situation, this book could be read alongside the heart-breaking witness account "Eyes in Gaza" by the Norwegian humanitarian doctors Gilbert and Fosse. What the media generally depict as a cruel( well, not too cruel- the victims are undifferentiated Arabs, or terrorists) necessity on the part of "plucky little Israel" has immense human cost.
I would also recommend the works by Jonathan Cook, who explains unchallengeably that the Jewish state's underlying policy is not just to kill Palestinians, but, even more, their hopes.
Quoting a leading Likud publicist from 1996, Chomsky notes that Netanyahu ( and, in general, the whole Israeli establishment) can contemplate a "Palestinian state" if the Palestinians choose to call it that rather than "fried chicken", and anybody who studies the "facts on the ground" can see that the "two-state solution" means that a KFC takeover of Palestine is, indeed, in the offing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get informed, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its incredibly difficult to get a handle on what's happening in Palestine because of the media's pro-European (hence pro-Israeli) bias - that, and coupled with ongoing guilt for the Holocaust - something to which Europeans have a great deal to feel guilty about but about which the Palestinian people should have no remorse whatsoever. Nonetheless, the victims of post-Holocaust Israeli expansionism have not been the perpertratos of the crimes agains the Jews, the Europeans, but the arabic indigenous settlers of the land now known as Israel, the Palestinians.

Pappe maps this crisis over the years and shows how US/Israeli media bias has perpetuated gross myths about Israel, particularly the Nakbah, or palestinian holocaust, of 1948. The denial of the war crimes of the Israelis stems from refusing to acknowledge the ethnic cleansing of Palestine that started then, in 1948. An excellent book

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book that speaks the truth, loudly., 27 Nov 2010
This review is from: Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians (Hardcover)
This is a really excellent book, such truth that the despicable Zionists will hate with all their hatred filled hearts ... the Zionist Israeli Apartheid State is slowly collapsing, they are fooling no one anymore, the Palestinians (Christian and Muslim) will soon have their, well deserved, justice, finally.
