    AL NAKBAQuand che una nazione abbastanza forte e matura da potersi confrontare con il proprio passato Me ne vengono in mente diverse, anche non lontane, che ancora non riescono a scendere a patti con una parte del loro passato Cominciando proprio da Israele, che non riesce a conciliarsi con la sua stessa genesi.Rifugiati palestinesi durante l esodo del 1948 Almeno 700 mila persone furono allontanate con la forza, costrette ad andarsene senza aver mai pi la possibilit di ritornare.Il 1948 l anno del peccato originale, della nascita della colpa Ma Pappe dimostra che l anno in cui la colpa viene consumata o meglio, iniziata a essere consumata, visto che si tratta di operazione che dura a tutt oggi , ma i sintomi e i primi istanti di vita di quello che sarebbe successo quell anno, quando gli inglesi se ne andarono dalla Palestina, e di quello che successo nei 65 anni a seguire, fino ai nostri giorni, viene da un po pi lontano, da quando i sionisti decisero che la Palestina era la loro Terra Promessa, la loro terra assegnata.Ilan Pappe uno storico israeliano che appartiene a quella che si pu definire la Nuova Storiografia Israeliana, vive e lavora in Inghilterra, non molto amato in patria, dove ma non solo l suscita i soliti rigurgiti di negazionismo Questo libro del 2006 basato sullo studio di documenti soltanto da poco messi a disposizione degli storici, quale il diario di Ben Gurion, e i verbali delle riunioni del Comitato di Consulta, l organo decisionale del partito milizia del movimento sionista, l Hagan.Nella notte del 31 ottobre 1946 tre giovani militanti dell Irgun, gruppo militante sionista, fecero brillare alcune cariche esplosive piazzate a Villa Bracciano, accanto a Porta Pia, sede dell ambasciata britannica a Roma L edificio, deserto al momento dell esplosione, venne raso al suolo e quindi ricostruito nel 1971 cos come lo si vede oggi I sionisti volevano convincere gli inglesi ad abbandonare la Palestina per aver campo libero nel loro piano di pulizia etnica I palestinesi al contrario avrebbero volentieri trattenuto i britannici.Gli israeliani hanno sostenuto che la convivenza con gli arabi sempre stata impossibile a causa delle continue aggressioni che hanno dovuto subire, e che gli arabi se ne sono andati dalla Palestina spontaneamente, abbandonando case beni e villaggi Ilan Pappe ribalta questa tesi, la smentisce in toto, e dimostra che abbandono ci fu, ma imposto con l uso della forza e della violenza da parte degli israeliani, che progettavano gi dagli anni Trenta un vero e proprio programma di pulizia etnica, scientificamente messo in atto dalle autorit , sioniste prima e israeliane poi, con l obiettivo di allargare lo spazio della nascente Israele ben oltre i confini fissati dalle convenzioni internazionali e far s che all interno di questi nuovi confini non ci fossero pi arabi Il piano ebbe successo e fu favorito dall ignavia della comunit internazionale che, ancora presa dai sensi di colpa per la sua inattivit contro lo sterminio del popolo ebraico in Europa durante la seconda guerra mondiale, si astenne da qualsiasi ingerenza.Rovine del villaggio palestinese di Suba, presso Gerusalemme, visto dal kibbutz ZovaL atteggiamento di Israele a Napoli verrebbe sintetizzato con una magnifica illuminante espressione chiagne e fotte Cio , mentre Israele si lamentava pubblicamente delle presunte aggressioni della popolazione araba, organizzava, preparava, iniziava e portava avanti sistematicamente la pulizia etnica del popolo palestinese Il mito della fondazione di Israele, secondo il quale appena inizi la guerra ci fu un volontario esodo di palestinesi, fa acqua da tutte le parti pura invenzione che gli ebrei tentarono di persuadere i palestinesi a restare, cosa sulla quale s insiste ancora oggi nei libri di scuola israeliani Centinaia di migliaia di palestinesi erano gi stati espulsi con la forza ancor prima del conflitto e altre decine di migliaia lo sarebbero state nel corso delle prime settimane di guerra Per la maggior parte di loro, la data del 15 maggio 1948 allora non aveva un particolare significato era semplicemente un altro giorno nel tremendo calendario di pulizia etnica che era iniziato pi di cinque mesi prima I tremendi resoconti della pulizia etnica non offuscarono mai la narrazione ufficiale e popolare israeliana, dato che vennero completamente cancellati.Campo di rifugiati di Jaramana in Siria.Pappe, in epigrafe a ogni capitolo, suggerisce il paragone con il caso di pulizia etnica recente a noi pi vicino, quello nei Balcani solo che qui, gli stessi reati, non hanno privato le vittime, se non altro, del loro diritto a poter ritornare nella propria casa o a essere indennizzate Diritto che, invece, al di l del Mediterraneo, Israele non ha mai voluto riconoscere, nonostante la risoluzione dell ONU La tesi di Pappe che fin tanto che Israele non riconoscer la pulizia etnica compiuta a partire dal 1948, e che in quell anno trov la sua massima forza, fino a quando le foreste che sono state piantate sulle macerie dei villaggi arabi derubati e distrutti non riporteranno almeno il nome originario dei luoghi, i colloqui di pace non raggiungeranno mai lo scopo che si prefiggono.Nel diario di Ben Gurion c l inizio e la spiegazione di tutto Noi fonderemo uno Stato cristiano in Libano Piegheremo la Transgiordania, bombarderemo Amman e distruggeremo il suo esercito, e allora la Siria cadr , e se, ciononostante, l Egitto continuer a combattere, bombarderemo Porto Said, Alessandria e il Cairo Questa sar la nostra vendetta per quello che loro gli Egiziani, gli Aramei e gli Assiri fecero ai nostri antenati ai tempi della Bibbia Belle premesse Ben Gurion, perfino Yitzhak Rabin, sono padri fondatori di Israele, personaggi leggendari, in realt furono volenterosi carnefici di Iehova Nonostante la cura redazionale dell editore Fazi lasci a desiderare ma come si fa a collocare in fondo al volume tutte le note, che in una ricerca di storia sono per forza di cose numerosissime , questo un libro importante, da non perdere.Al Nakba come in arabo si chiama l esodo palestinese.La dieta dimagrante della Palestina a partire dal 1948

    They say the truth is a bitter pill to swallow Actually it is than that Reading this book as an extremely painful journey, in a way that exceeds your worst nightmares I wasn t able to read than 20 pages per day, not because of its richness with information but because my brain needed time to absorb all the atrocities PLEASE READ THIS BOOK I think it s one of our responsibilities as humans to educate ourselves about the injustice in the world so we can be part of the change in the futur again PLEASE READ THIS BOOK you ll do us a favor.

    This book doesn t need a review It s a piece of living history, it should be school material instead of the lies and rubbish TV churns out on a daily basis So well documented, so much empathy So much respect for this man having the courage to write the truth.

    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 1947 constitute ethnic cleansing This perpetrated atrocity serves as a prototype for ethnic cleansing similar to that by the Nazis in Germany According to Pappe, M ore than half of Palestine s native population, close to 800,000, had been uprooted, 531 villages had been destroyed, and eleven urban neighbourhoods emptied of their inhabitants p xiii The cabal the Hagana The plot plan Dalet, the organized and enforced removal of Palestinians from their homelands What remained enveloped in misinformation the Palestinians story, which is quite excellently illuminated by Pappe 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.N mediator Count Bernadotte was murdered after he proposed the unconditional return of all the refugees p 156 The right to return was granted in a UN decision that has been ignored Justice 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 One might argue, no, the reason for suppression is fear and the pursuit of self interests such as safety and security And, to that I say that it is important to recognize multiple perspectives A possible consideration put forth by Pappe a pluralistic civic and democratic state p 256 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.P.S The latter discourse is in no way intended to convey bias or prejudice to or towards anyone.

    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 after they were eventually released forty years after 1948 I read Pappe following the a challenge by an politically anti Israel Jewish friend of mine who teaches in Philosophy at UNSW 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 It was painful because, as a Jew, I couldn t help feeling ASHamed as a Jew to be just like all the other racist nationalists the world over Christian, Buddhist, Leftist, Rightist or Muslim.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 1948 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 freedom of speech and political commercial transparency accountability, there are 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 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.

    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 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 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 book and recommend it to all.

    Zionist views have been overwhelmingly influential in the United States The Story of Israel that I place in quotation marks to indicate its mythological nature, has been presented repeatedly, but most famously in the novel and movie, Exodus 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 Ilan Papp , an Israeli Jew, has, in this book, presented the facts upon which true justice must be based.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 So it has happened.Zionism struggled before WW2 because not enough Jews were interested in going to Palestine, but the holocaust put the movement over the top, not only providing the necessary influx but also creating a feeling of guilt among the nations of the world not least Germany that was leveraged into the creation of the State of Israel and its financing and militarization since read The Holocaust Industry by Norman Finkelstein.This book is a detailed accounting of the horrors that occurred the forced evacuation of hundreds of villages, executions of villagers over 31 events are considered massacres , blowing up houses or setting fire to them with the residents inside, military attacks on unarmed civilians pure terror by the folks who loudly denounce terror.The parallel to what happened in Kosovo is startling, particularly in view of the NATO bombing that took place to stop the activity in the former Yugoslavia compared to the lack of any effort to stop the cleansing of Palestine In fact, the United States cannot do enough to help the process as it continues to this day.Israel, like the United States, is a country founded on injustice The process could take place hidden away in the vastness of the American west in the 19th century, but with Israel it has been quite obvious all along Shockingly, the world has stood by, impotent in the face of the special relationship between the US and Israel fostered by the political power of Zionists in the United States This history is a blot on both countries The ethic cleansing has proceeded only because of US protection and not a few American Jews hold dual citizenship, having taken up residence in the Israeli settlements specifically to take the land from the natives.As the Senate confirmation hearing on Chuck Hagel demonstrated conclusively, Congress is the puppet of Zionism Senators fell all over themselves questioning Hagel about his views on Israel while all other matters were secondary.Americans should wake up to the reality of Israel, a county that is injustice institutionalized, a living example of everything the American civil rights movement was out to end The founders of Israel state were full and mostly eager participants in the eviction of the Palestinians, the destruction of their homes and villages and the deliberate erasure of the evidence continued to this day by the planting of forests by the Jewish National Fund All the facts are evident in the archives and in particular the diary of David ben Gurion, who happily viewed empty villages flushed of the Arab residents This history is an outrage that any person, Jewish or not, should find revolting.There is only one future for Israel as a democracy for all people, not a place for one group the Jews to ride herd on others This will come as surely as it did in South Africa The BDS boycott, divestment and sanctions movement is a great way to make progress in this.When one s nation does wrong, only a few citizens will have the courage to point it out My deepest respect to Professor Papp , who was hounded out of Israel and now teaches in Great Britain, for this outstanding documentary work My deepest apologies to the Palestinian people who have endured decades of injustice and are readily labeled terrorists be those ignorant of the past and the people.

    This is the type of book wealthy hipster kids and trustafarians like to read to feel good about themselves The book is incredibly manipulative and tugs at the emotional strings of clueless readers to indoctrinate them with anti Israeli and Islamist aligned propaganda There are some truths in the book and there s no doubt Israel has had it s share of committing atrocities, but this book completely glosses over all of the atrocities committed by the Palestinians on the Christian Palestinians as well as the Muslim ones too It doesn t explain how the majority of Bedouin Israelis and Druze Israelis support and often fight for Israel This is the type of propaganda used by pan Islamic nationalists in the middle of the 20th century to promote Muslim unity by developing the narrative if an evil enemy Israel and the poor, helpless victims Palestinians Somehow this Islamist narrative became in vogue amongst the left wing, self congratulating academics sitting the Ivory Towers of the West Now the Palestinians are professional victims who have become a mascot of the self righteous hipsters, progressives and college activists The book ignores how the Arab nations never accepted the Palestinian refugees and massacred them as well in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon Compare this with the Jewish nakba where 700,000 Jews were expelled from Arab nations and were peacefully assimilated and welcomed into Israeli society What happened in the past was a tragedy for both sides, but during this time, numerous groups of people migrated and many borders were redrawn Partition of India, Armenian genocide, Greek expulsion from Turkey , but only the Palestinians continue to play professional victims as a political tool for the anti Semitic Islamists and their left wing apologists.
