Why has the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians persisted for so long, and how can peace and justice finally be realized?
To answer these questions, we need to have a proper understanding of the conflict’s origins. Unfortunately, the mainstream media has not just failed to properly inform us, but presents a grossly skewed picture.
Here’s some of the standard narratives you’re likely familiar with:
The truth is dramatically different from the stories we hear from government officials and the mainstream media about how this conflict originated. Every one of the above standard narratives is false.
I’m Jeremy R. Hammond, publisher and editor of Foreign Policy Journal and author of several books on the Palestine conflict.
I had been researching and writing about this contentious subject for years when, at the end of 2008, Israel launched a full-scale military assault on Gaza, dubbed “Operation Cast Lead”. I had predicted this operation a few months earlier, and watched with disgust how the US mainstream media was deceiving their audience about how this assault came about and what was happening on the ground.
For my coverage of that assault on Gaza, and the US’s support for it, I ended up receiving the Project Censored Award. The media’s disgraceful coverage also made me determined to write a book to set the record straight on Operation Cast Lead and other Israeli operations, Israel’s deadly attack on a humanitarian flotilla in 2010, the so-called “peace process”, the US role, the media’s role, and much more.
The end result of that effort is my book is Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (2016), a definitive work of contemporary history that navigates the maze of conflicting information and illuminates the path forward.
But as I set out working on that book in the wake of Operation Cast Lead, I knew that in order to understand contemporary events, historical context was needed. In order to explain why the conflict persists today, I would need to explain its origins. So I began researching more and writing about the history leading up to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.
That led to me splintering my book project and first publishing a short book called The Rejection of Palestinian Self-Determination: The Struggle for Palestine and the Roots of the Israeli-Arab Conflict (2009).
This book focuses on the crucial period from the rise of the Zionist movement until the creation of the state of Israel and examines how the seeds of the conflict were sown during that time.
It reexamines key historical documents and places important events in their proper context, providing fresh insights and exposing numerous popularly held beliefs as myths.
Standard mainstream narratives about how the conflict originated are misleading at best — and largely fictional. The Rejection of Palestinian Self-Determination provides you with an antidote to the propaganda version of history you’ve been taught.
Here’s what a few others have had to say about The Rejection of Palestinian Self-Determination:
“Excellent short work on the founding of Israel via the wholesale violation of the rights of Palestinians. This is the book to give to people who ask what’s at the root of Middle East strife. Highly recommended!”Sheldon Richman
“A Must Read on This Subject – Makes its case with clarity and economy. A pleasure to read, and quite convincing in its thesis about the origin of Israel.”Gene Epstein
“Essential reading…. It is clearly written, providing a succinct summary of the various letters, documents, and committees that worked on the cause of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. For anyway considering arguments about the Palestinian-Israeli problem, this work should become a necessary short primer….”Jim Miles
