review The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Since the Holocaust it has been almost impossible to hide large scale crimes against humanity In our communicative world few modern catastro. The author s thourough and honest discourse is both immaculate and sobering Pappe proves authoritatively that the actions by a group of supposed Zionists in Israel beginning in 1947 constitute ethnic cleansing This perpetrated atrocity serves as a prototype for ethnic cleansing similar to that by the Nazis in Germany According to Pappe More than half of Palestine s native population close to 800000 had been uprooted 531 villages had been destroyed and eleven urban neighbourhoods emptied of their inhabitants p xiii The cabal the Hagana The plot plan Dalet the organized and enforced removal of Palestinians from their homelands What remained enveloped in misinformation the Palestinians story which is uite excellently illuminated by Pappe Pappe described the reality of the war which unfortunately consisted of large massacres via machine gun and rapes after the habitations of the Palestinians were forcefully taken and generally looted burned and otherwise destroyed buried and hidden by new developments The residents of these villages were barred illegally from return to their homelands In fact according to Pappe UN mediator Count Bernadotte was murdered after he proposed the unconditional return of all the refugees p 156 The right to return was granted in a UN decision that has been ignored Justice Why did I read this book I like books about controversial moral issues that raise awareness about injustice That is books like this are really milestones of conscious work because they shed light on information that is suppressed in order to oppress a people One might argue no the reason for suppression is fear and the pursuit of self interests such as safety and security And to that I say that it is important to recognize multiple perspectives A possible consideration put forth by Pappe a pluralistic civic and democratic state p 256 In sum Pappe has created veracious source for future rhetorical discussions on the issue of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine Also this book is excellent for the discovery of methods of writing about historyPS The latter discourse is in no way intended to convey bias or prejudice to or towards anyone

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Phes are concealed from the public eye And yet Ilan Pappe unveils one such crime has been erased from the global public memory the ethnic cl. Zionist views have been overwhelmingly influential in the United States The Story of Israel that I place in uotation marks to indicate its mythological nature has been presented repeatedly but most famously in the novel and movie Exodus It is the story of victims struggling to an empty land where they make the desert bloom and stand proudly with weapons in hand shouting never againThis appealing heroic justice loving scenario is a fabrication Ilan Papp an Israeli Jew has in this book presented the facts upon which true justice must be basedFrom its inception late in the 19th century mainstream Zionism considered early on as a kind of lunatic fringe within Judaism put forth the clearing of the indigenous people the Arabs living in Palestine as a necessity for the creation of a Jewish majority there So it has happenedZionism struggled before WW2 because not enough Jews were interested in going to Palestine but the holocaust put the movement over the top not only providing the necessary influx but also creating a feeling of guilt among the nations of the world not least Germany that was leveraged into the creation of the State of Israel and its financing and militarization since read The Holocaust Industry by Norman FinkelsteinThis book is a detailed accounting of the horrors that occurred the forced evacuation of hundreds of villages executions of villagers over 31 events are considered massacres blowing up houses or setting fire to them with the residents inside military attacks on unarmed civilians pure terror by the folks who loudly denounce terrorThe parallel to what happened in Kosovo is startling particularly in view of the NATO bombing that took place to stop the activity in the former Yugoslavia compared to the lack of any effort to stop the cleansing of Palestine In fact the United States cannot do enough to help the process as it continues to this dayIsrael like the United States is a country founded on injustice The process could take place hidden away in the vastness of the American west in the 19th century but with Israel it has been uite obvious all along Shockingly the world has stood by impotent in the face of the special relationship between the US and Israel fostered by the political power of Zionists in the United States This history is a blot on both countries The ethic cleansing has proceeded only because of US protection and not a few American Jews hold dual citizenship having taken up residence in the Israeli settlements specifically to take the land from the nativesAs the Senate confirmation hearing on Chuck Hagel demonstrated conclusively Congress is the puppet of Zionism Senators fell all over themselves uestioning Hagel about his views on Israel while all other matters were secondaryAmericans should wake up to the reality of Israel a county that is injustice institutionalized a living example of everything the American civil rights movement was out to end The founders of Israel state were full and mostly eager participants in the eviction of the Palestinians the destruction of their homes and villages and the deliberate erasure of the evidence continued to this day by the planting of forests by the Jewish National Fund All the facts are evident in the archives and in particular the diary of David ben Gurion who happily viewed empty villages flushed of the Arab residents This history is an outrage that any person Jewish or not should find revoltingThere is only one future for Israel as a democracy for all people not a place for one group the Jews to ride herd on others This will come as surely as it did in South Africa The BDS boycott divestment and sanctions movement is a great way to make progress in thisWhen one s nation does wrong only a few citizens will have the courage to point it out My deepest respect to Professor Papp who was hounded out of Israel and now teaches in Great Britain for this outstanding documentary work My deepest apologies to the Palestinian people who have endured decades of injustice and are readily labeled terrorists be those ignorant of the past and the people
