About this deal

The debate and criticism, however, usually missed the point: Blumenthal presents a preponderance of evidence that leads inevitably to a sort of judgment that surpasses the verisimilitude of balance. Racism is always present throughout the society as a whole and mimics everything the Jews themselves went through in Europe. And, according to Rabbi Fischmann, "The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.

Blumenthal shows how these divisions have been manipulated to create support for repressive measures against Palestinians and the recent wave of non-Jewish immigrants. A] bold and shocking book, presenting persuasively a major theoretical and polemical argument about Israel almost completely at odds with the image most Americans have of it. Blumenthal has made a sobering prima facie case that there are extreme forces [within Israel's current political-social dynamics] to be aware of, and reckoned with more fully that American discourse usually does. First, to the extent that “self-appointed enforcers” tried to limit debate on Israel, it was much worse in the 1980s. Through his far-ranging travels, Blumenthal illuminates the present by uncovering the ghosts of the past,the histories of Palestinian neighbourhoods and villages now gone and forgotten how that history has set the stage for the current crisis of Israeli society and how the Holocaust has been turned into justification for occupation.

Zionists, and the State of Israel, have been accused of plotting to expand Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates. a b Finkelstein, Norman (2005), Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-semitism and the Abuse of History, University of California Press, p. The quotes from military commanders and political leaders justifying massacres and mass displacement of the indigenous Palestinian population are chilling. The author is Max Blumenthal, gonzo journalist, video provocateur and son of onetime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal. 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.

The capture of the West Bank and Gaza Strip from Jordan and Egypt during the Six-Day War in 1967 led to the growth of the non-parliamentary Movement for Greater Israel and the construction of Israeli settlements. You will loose all your false allusions of our Middle East democratic ally, falsely claiming it is surrounded by hostile countries who wish to drive it into the sea on any given day. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.This well-written book contains a detailed chronicle of the situation in Israel/Palestine and provides the historical context to understand it. None, however, have addressed the actual irrefutable evidence of past and present ethnic cleansing that the book documents.

Main article: Promised Land The "Royal Grant" to Abraham consisting of all the land east of the Brook of Egypt and west of the Euphrates, north of Kadesh and south of Hamath, from a 1919 book by Clarence Larkin. A rich, roiling examination of 'the State of Israel during a period of deepening political and societal crisis' . Allerdings sind einige Kapitel-Überschriften bewusst provozierend gewählt: „The Silence of the Lambs“, „How to kill Goyim and influence people“, „The Concentration Camp", und Zitate wie „Judeo-Nazis“.

Brash, gritty, personal and close to the ground, this is a report from an Israel and a Palestine we seldom see in the mainstream media.Meir Kahane, an ultra-nationalist Knesset member, who founded the American Jewish Defense League and the banned Israeli Kach party, worked towards Greater Israel and other Religious Zionist goals. 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. Beginning with the national elections carried out during Israel's war on Gaza in 2008-09, which brought into power the country's most right-wing government to date, Blumenthal tells the story of Israel in the wake of the collapse of the Oslo peace process. The sub-title ‘Life and Loathing in Greater Israel’ references what is now mainstream thought – the notions embedded in Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud (which means ‘consolidation’) Charter of no contiguous Palestinian State, and one Greater Israel stretching from the Jordan to the Mediterranean absorbing to all intents and purposes the Occupied Territories.
