5.0 out of 5 stars 'Reality' is exactly the right word, 27 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict (Paperback)
This book is only for those who are serious about understanding one of the longest, and seemingly confusing conflicts in modern history.

Dr. Finkelstein's bold and very thorough analysis does an outstanding job at dissecting most of the greatest myths about the Palestine/Israel conflict. He covers the entire conflict, starting with the reasons for creating a Jewish state in the first place, the real source of Palestinian resistance to the creation of such a state (the fear of expulsion and/or oppression), and Israel's cunning ability to exploit narrow historical opportunities in order to expand its state.

I heard there were efforts to silence this book, and after reading it, I perfectly understand why- it exposes several parts of the American intellectual community as complete frauds.

15 years on, this book remains remarkably relevant to what's going on today.
