- This book challenges the common assumption that Israel was founded to right an historical wrong
- The political manipulation to this end by the Zionists is one of the remarkable phenomena of the 20th century
- The collusion of the British governments is an irredeemable disgrace
- The suffering inflicted upon the Arab population of Palestine to achieve the foundation bears comparison with any attempt at genocide of the 20th century
- The persecution of the Arab population and the theft of their land continues unabated and unhindered
A unique event: the handing over of a country by a country who did not own it to a third, which had only mythical claims to it. This happened in 1918 when the British ‘gave’ Palestine to the Jews by the Balfour Declaration. The Palestinian Arabs never accepted the theft of their land but have been powerless against the weight of support for the Jews given by the most powerful nations.
Since 1918, despite the foundation of Israel in 1948, the region has been plagued by wars, deaths and a refugee problem of millions. The future of the Palestinians is dire and seemingly inevitable.
