About this deal

Significantly, he demonstrates how the injustices in Israel/Palestine did not start with the occupation, recounting the well-documented process of ethnic cleaning that enabled the foundation of the state of Israel. Blumenthal came to Israel looking for racists, bigots, Zionist extremists, Arab haters, land stealers, settlers, crazed rabbis, Jewish supremacists, messianists, maniacs and near lunatics and by golly he found them, interviewed them and put them in his book. Racism is always present throughout the society as a whole and mimics everything the Jews themselves went through in Europe. Goliath would certainly be appropriate for classroom use, though it has potential to be one of those fabled “controversial texts,” as it was produced and marketed for a general readership. The book leaves unanswered what those of us who support peace can actually do or is BDS the only answer?

From a letter from Chaim Weizmann to Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, High Commissioner for Palestine, while the Peel Commission was convening in 1937: "We shall spread in the whole country in the course of time . But at the same time, Yousef mentioned my last book which was a best seller, and it was a best seller because I was able to get fresh air in the main stream media. For The Land and The Lord: The Range of Disagreement within Jewish Fundamentalism, by Ian Lustick, chapter V and chapter VII (accessed 12 October 2005).According to the UN, at least 700,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank, territories that are intended for a future Palestinian state as per the internationally-supported two-state-solution. Blumenthal gives a convoluted answer that comes down to this: “There should be a choice placed to the settler-colonial population” (meaning the entire Jewish population of Israel): “Become indigenized,” that is, “you have to be part of the Arab world.

It is a truly degenerate country rescued only by the courage of people like Gideon Levy and Amira Hass, and Noam Chomsky, Illan Pappe – and Max Blumethal. Conspiracy theorists have suggested the blue strips of the Israeli flag represent the Nile and Euphrates as the boundaries of Eretz Isra'el as promised to the Jews by God according to religious scripture.Early Revisionist Zionist groups such as Betar and Irgun Zvai-Leumi regarded the territory of the Mandate for Palestine, including Transjordan, as Greater Israel. More than 170 Palestinian Arabs instructed to take shelter in the Dahmash mosque near Ramleh were slaughtered by forces under Yitzhak Rabin and Yigal Allon’s command and then left to rot in the July heat. Es beschreibt den Hintergrund und die aktuelle Situation Israels aus erster Hand und von allen Seiten.

The author is Max Blumenthal, gonzo journalist, video provocateur and son of onetime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal. Blumenthal hat viel Zeit in Israel und Palästina verbracht und unterschiedlichste Menschen interviewt.The author clearly explains how the State led by a very militaristic, ultra nationalistic culture, particularly after the 1967 War, begins to displays it's true colors by their very racist ideas of who is a proper Jew, (White Europeans) not Middle East/Arab Jews, African's or Asians. At the culmination of a transitional phase that began after the second intifada and the collapse of the Camp David talks, and really the collapse of the peace process, what we are seeing right now is the state of Israel, Jewish state acting out the terminal phase of Zionism. The jewish Israelis because of slowly losing their sense of justice and getting away from a democratic environment, something which they say is the situation in many of the countries surrounding Israel.
