They say the truth is a bitter pill to swallow. Actually it is more than that!
Reading this book as an extremely painful journey, in a way that exceeds your worst nightmares. I wasn’t able to read more than 20 pages per day, not because of its richness with information but because my brain needed time to absorb all the atrocities.

So well documented, so much empathy. So much respect for this man having the courage to write the truth.
Jul 08, Sean Glover rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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 constitute ethnic cleansing. This perpetrated atrocity serves as a prototype for ethnic cleansing similar to that by the Nazis in Germany. What remained enveloped in misinformation: 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, U. 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. A possible consideration put forth by Pappe: 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 history. The latter discourse is in no way intended to convey bias or prejudice to or towards anyone.
Dec 12, Dowl Phin rated it did not like it Shelves: I found Pappe’s book painful as he outlined the atrocities committed by Israel – even though I was mi I first read The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Ilan Pappe, one of the “Israeli New Historians” who looked at the archived materials from Cabinet meetings, politician diaries, Israel Defence Force orders etc I found Pappe’s book painful as he outlined the atrocities committed by Israel – even though I was mindful of the one-sided non-contextual facts that Pappe was describing, and the consequent one-sided idealistic anti-Israel interpretation.
I followed Pappe up with Benny Morris’ book, knowing that Morris was one of the first of the “New Historians” to look at the historical material. Morris offers the balanced contextual background to Pappe’s propaganda diatribe – with a 19th century starting point instead of one which commences in Morris accepts Pappe’s atrocities but he also outlines the earlier Arab atrocities; he describes the self-delusion, corruption and moral bankruptcy of Arab leadership as well as the errors of strategy and internecine rivalries of the Arab elites; and he writes his history aware of the dynamics and uncertainties that are integral to war – in contrast to Pappe’s simplistic interpretation of evil consequence being a result of evil desire.
Following the reading of both books I have come to the conclusion that there will NOT be any peace between Israel and the Palestinians until both sides recognise the atrocities and the errors of judgement that they have committed.
At this stage, each side only looks at the atrocities the other side has committed, though I suspect that because of more freedom of speech and political-commercial transparency-accountability, there are more Jews, Israelis and Westerners who recognise the ‘evils’ of their ways than there are Muslims, Arabs and Palestinians who recognise the ‘evils’ of their ways.
War is evil – no doubt about that.
Review: Palestine | The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine | The Iron Cage | Books | The Guardian
War is two-sided – no doubt about that, either. The tit-for-tat strategy that both sides use has not produced peace in the near-term and there is no reason to believe tit-for-tat will bring peace in the long-term.
It is well to keep in mind that existence and honour seem to be two infinite values. Jews and Israelis see this conflict, following centuries of oppression and last century’s attempt at liquidation in terms of existence. Simultaneously, Muslims and Arabs see the past century in terms of humiliation and loss of honour. At this stage in our history, non-indigenous Westerners in general, and non-Aboriginal Australians in particular, have little understanding of either existential threat or humiliation – and so it is that when I discuss the Middle East with them, I have a sense that they are clueless.
Reading Morris after Pappe is a good ways to become clued-up. View all 6 comments. Sep 27, Richard rated it it was amazing. 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 Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
The UN also must be ashamed of its duplicitous role. Ilan 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 UN. It is particularly important to read this now I thought I knew the history of Israel’s annexation of Palestine but this was a totally shocking account! It is particularly important to eghnic 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 impediment? I was absorbed by this cleansiing and recommend it to all. Feb 25, Clif rated it it papps amazing. Zionist views have been overwhelmingly influential in the United States. 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 again”.
This appealing, heroic, justice-loving scenario is a fabrication. From 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.
