A powerful book, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine challenges the narrative of Israel as a democratic refuge of a persecuted people and suggests, instead, the birth of the nation was the death of a homeland for Palestinians eternally exiled. I was most moved reading his accounts of Arab villages destroyed in the Nakba, the "catastrophe" Palestinians refer to as the 1948 birth of Israel. Read this book and you will see the world through a different prism.

This book is a revelation, though not one that totally surprises. The book documents in relentless detail the treatment of the Palestinian people from the 1920's through to today with a focus on 1947 to 8. It describes the ethnic cleansing that went on along with the successful burying of that fact. It sadly reveals that populations are no different from people. Those who are abused are likely to abuse once in power. To do differently takes a self awareness and understanding which is unusual.
It is obvious that any solution will have to involve addressing the acts of 1948. If it is not done the prognosis for peace in the area (or the world) is low. Given the Western, particularly US, present demonization of Muslims, this scenario seem unlikely. Admittedly, any solution which treats Palestinians justly, will create a different Israel. ( )

I have yet to read this. Am looking forward to it. Have heard several of his lectures. A smart and courageous guy.

In our communicative world few modern catastrophes are hidden from the public eye. Yet one such crime has been erased from the global public memory: the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948. This work offers an investigation of this mystery, & interprets the relationship of Nakba to the Palestine-Israeli conflict. Originally published: 2006.… (more)
