    I have not read the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Dr Pappe I started with this one and found it really interesting First of all, it is really good to know about the insides of a community, which we do not know about Second, the courage that Dr Pappe has is beyond what one can imagine I can not imagine to stand against the current of my country and my friends, talking against a well rooted ideology in the minds of its population and talking about the enemies of Israel as the victims I have not read the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Dr Pappe I started with this one and found it really interesting First of all, it is really good to know about the insides of a community, which we do not know about Second, the courage that Dr Pappe has is beyond what one can imagine I can not imagine to stand against the current of my country and my friends, talking against a well rooted ideology in the minds of its population and talking about the enemies of Israel as the victims of its policies It was very surprising for me to know that Israelis do not know the truth about 1948 As a Palestinian, though never been allowed to go to my home country, what happened in 1948 is a fact that does not need debate It is well known for every single Palestinian what happened in 1948 Although it was not documented at first in books and researches, it is very well documented in our hearts and minds All the massacres took place at that time, in Deir Yassin, Tantura and many other villages are realities that I thought the World knows about at least Palestinians and Israelis as they live on this land which witnessed these massacres, and these massacres took place in order for them to live there The destruction of almost 420 villages in Palestine, killing and expulsion are what Israel was built on All the stories were told by our grand fathers and mothers, they used to speak about it, and live for it Although I ve never been to Palestine, I can recognize every city of it from what I ve read and from the photos I try to memorize Now, these stories and photos are being documented in books, issued by Palestinians and other supporters These are documented so that not to forget , and it will never be forgotten We were taught that if we need to solve a problem, we need to find the root cause for it and handle it This is what this book tries to say We have to admit that the root cause of the Israeli Palestinian conflict lies in what happened in 1948 and after till this moment , and this conflict can never be solved without the recognition of what happened then Israeli officials used to say, Palestinians were expelled, the old generation who used to live in Palestine died, and the new coming generation will forget all about it From what I see and feel, the new generation isdetermined to end the occupation, to go back to his land and to live with dignity there Get back what was stolen from their parents is their dream This will never be solved by a two state solution, and even by a one state solution under the rule of Israel This will only be achieved when justice is applied on this land..it is one country, it is Palestine

    I almost missed this book It s basically Israeli historian Ilan Pappe s autobiography, explaining how he came to be so critical of Israel s actions in Palestine and of the official narrative of 1948 That is, as a historian, he became fully aware of the reality of the Nakbah and its importance for understanding what is going on in Palestine today He also describes the abuse, hatred and downright Orwellian and Kafkaesque treatment he received from fellow academics and anonymous stalkers The bo I almost missed this book It s basically Israeli historian Ilan Pappe s autobiography, explaining how he came to be so critical of Israel s actions in Palestine and of the official narrative of 1948 That is, as a historian, he became fully aware of the reality of the Nakbah and its importance for understanding what is going on in Palestine today He also describes the abuse, hatred and downright Orwellian and Kafkaesque treatment he received from fellow academics and anonymous stalkers The book is enlightening, exquisitely written, and a perfect antidote to the myth of the Middle East s only democracy Pappe puts them to shame and exposes Israel for what it really is to use Desmond Tutu s words worse than Apartheid

    Was honestly expecting a lotfrom Illan Pappe on this one The issue of academic freedom has been somewhat of a taboo topic in Israel and i thought who else would be better to explore the topic than the writer of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine What i got instead was a largely fragmented personal account of Pappe s own struggles in the area of Israel academia Was interesting but not one of his best.

    I do not like his views at all, he is a self hating Jew and I totally feel sorry for him to falsely proud of his Israeli identity.

    Amazing book Read about the freedom of academia in the Israeli society by an Israeli.
