review The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine 100 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. What s ethnic cleansingAccording to the final report of a United Nations Commission of Experts who investigated Yugoslavia s violation of humanitarian laws in 1994 ethnic cleansing is a purposeful policy designed by one ethnic or religious group to remove by violent and terror inspiring means the civilian population of another ethnic or religious group from certain geographic areas The report goes on to state that ways to forcibly expel unwanted civilian populations by ethnic cleansing can include murder torture arbitrary arrest and detention extrajudicial executions rape and sexual assaults severe physical injury to civilians confinement of civilian population in ghetto areas forcible removal displacement and deportation of civilian population deliberate military attacks or threats of attacks on civilians and civilian areas use of civilians as human shields destruction of property robbery of personal property attacks on hospitals medical personnel and locations with the Red CrossRed Crescent emblem among othersThe UN Commission of Experts states that the above practices constitute crimes against humanity and can be assimilated to specific war crimes Further such acts could also fall within the meaning of the Genocide Convention UN Commission of ExpertsUsing numerous documents from Israeli government archives entries from David Ben Gurion s personal diary and eyewitness accounts from Palestinian victims Israeli historian Ilan Pappe makes a strong case that the Zionists using most of the methods mentioned in the report ethnically cleansed Palestine of most of its native Palestinian population in the 1948 war Zionist soldiers and members of former terrorist groups during Mandate times used violence and terror against Palestinians civilians They also murdered raped and imprisoned Palestinians and forced the survivors to walk countless miles to refugee camps in other countries Looters stole the contents of many Palestinian homes which the owners were forced to abandon Afterwards the Zionists obliterated almost all evidence that Palestinians had ever lived in Palestine for centuriesPappe maintains that the Zionists had another reason for obliterating most traces of Palestinian villages and towns to prevent their occupants and descendants from ever returning to their homes and native homeland againPappe also exploded key myths in the Zionists narrative of Israel s creation Here are just a few The Zionists were the victims of Palestinian and Arab aggression Actually the Zionists were the victimizers One thing that really frustrated David Ben Gurion and others Zionists was the Palestinians passiveness They didn t respond to the Zionists repeated provocations that would justify attacking and expelling them The Palestinians just wanted to live in their country in peace In the end the Zionists initiated the violence The Zionists were fighting a desperate war of survival Actually Israel was never in danger of being defeated by the Palestinians or by the Arab armies The Zionists had two narratives The public one was that they were fighting for survival The secret but true narrative was that there was no chance of their losing In fact while they were fighting their so called war of survival Israeli soldiers and former terrorists were also shelling Palestinian villages and towns indiscriminately killing massacring and even raping the inhabitants and forcing them out of their homes and into refugee camps in other countries Many of the villages and towns had existed for centuries Some contained both Palestinians and Jews who had been living together peacefully for centuries as friends and neighbors Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East Actually Israel is an apartheid state because of its treatment of the Palestinians who remain in Israel Israel also treats certain groups of Jews as second class citizens The Camp David negotiations in 2000 failed because Yassir Arafat refused to negotiate Actually Arafat wasn t allowed to negotiate because the US allowed Israel to set the terms for peace No right of return No Jerusalem as the Palestinians capital Arafat refused to sign the document because it violated UN Resolution 194 which recognized the Palestinians right to return to their homes By signing the document Arafat would have betrayed his peoplePeppe advocates a one state solution to the Palestinian Israeli problem Israel should become a civic democratic state in which Jews and Palestinians can live peacefully together like they used to do before the Zionists destroyed everythingPappe makes a strong case in defense of the Palestinians and his book includes copious end notes Anyone who is interested in why there seems to be no solution to the Palestinian Israeli problem should read this book because it gives a different point of view from the prevailing one

I thought I knew the history of Israel s annexation of Palestine but this was a totally shocking account I can t believe Britain reneged so emphatically on its promise to allow the Palestinians independence The UN also must be ashamed of its duplicitous roleIlan Pappe is a Jewish academic who cannot be accused of anti semitism He just wants people to know what really happened Israel is guilty of war crimes aided and abetted by Britain and the UNIt is particularly important to read this now that Palestine has applied for recgnition as a state at the UN How can this be denied when the UN allowed Israel without any impedimentI was absorbed by this book and recommend it to all

characters The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

review The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine 100 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
