The History of Israel Reconsidered: A Talk by Ilan Pappe 
by Ilan Pappe; March 18, 2007 

Professor Ilan Pappe is an Israeli historian and senior lecturer of Political Science at Haifa University. He is the author of numerous books, including A History of Modern Palestine, The Modern Middle East, The Israel/Palestine Question and, most recently, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, published in 2006. On March 8, he spoke at a small colloquium in Tokyo organized by the NIHU Program Islamic Area Studies, University of Tokyo Unit, on the path of personal experiences that brought him to write his new book. The following is a transcript of his lecture, tentatively titled "The History of Israel Reconsidered" by organizers of the event. 


Speaking of the Palestinian citizens of Israel...

Essential Jonathan Cook interview

Although it's nearly three months old, Jonathan Cook draws a lot of issues together. Very strong on how Israeli policy deliberately encourages the quiet transfer of educated Palestinians, the restrictions on employment of any kind, and the catch 22 of Palestinian resistance - resist nonviolently and the media ignore it and Israel wins, resist violently and become the villians and Israel wins. Also disengagement and demography and many other issues. Crucial viewing. Actually, crucial listening, as the video is just Jonathan talking.

Two locations to hear the 1 hour interview:

I'm reading his latest book now and STRONGLY recommend it:

Blood and Religion
The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State
