[ePalestine] Two astounding journalists, one in 2015, the other in 1923

IDF detain a Palestinian during clashes in the Jalazone refugee camp, June 12, 2015.

In our homes, our streets and our places of work and entertainment, there are thousands of people who killed and tortured thousands of other people or supervised their killing and torture. I write "thousands" as a substitute for the vaguer "countless" – an expression for something that cannot be measured.

The Palestine Deception, 1915–1923: The McMahon-Hussein Correspondence, the Balfour Declaration, and the Jewish National Home

Publisher: Institute for Palestine Studies (2014)

He reported from ground zero in Palestine and did not shy away from calling reality as he witnessed it.
