About this deal

Es beschreibt den Hintergrund und die aktuelle Situation Israels aus erster Hand und von allen Seiten. You will have Israel with democracy for Jews and votes for Palestinian Israelis but with institutionalised discrimination against them in areas such as property rights or army service (only Jews are allowed to do national service which is mandatory, with Bedouin recruits used for the ‘grunt’ jobs: there is no role for Palestinians).

And so that stern wave of his hand was what brought Lydda under Israeli control and transformed it into the Ramleh/Lod municipal district. Publishers Weekly wrote that the book is "a blunt look at a country where citizens are clearly divided into the "haves" and the "have nots".Through his far-ranging travels, Blumenthal illuminates the present by uncovering the ghosts of the past the histories of Palestinian neighborhoods 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.

Masalha, Nur (1992), Expulsion of the Palestinians: The Concept of "Transfer" in Zionist Political Thought, 1882-1948, Inst for Palestine Studies, p. Der US-amerikanische Historiker, Journalist und Bestsellerautor Max Blumenthal hat sich insbesondere mit der Politik der Republikanischen Partei und Israels auseinandergesetzt.Exposure to the impressions from his journey through the Land of Israel-Palestine might be outrageous, unsettling, often heart wrenching. Goliath: life and loathing in Greater Israel and Shattered Hopes: Obama's failure to broker Israeli-Palestinian peace". If his focus can be distilled to a singular theme, it would be the consistent mendacity on display across political, economic, and cultural strata in Israel vis-à-vis the inherent iniquities of the Zionist project. My book, I think, will have a long shelf life, it might be an evergreen book hopefully, even if it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. I interviewed David Rotem, who is the author, or co-sponsor of most of these laws, at his home in Efrat, the Israeli settlement, mega settlement, in the West Bank.

The other two definitions are: a narrower one, found in the Book of Numbers ( Numbers 34:1–15) and the Book of Ezekiel ( Ezekiel 47:13–20), which refers to the land that was divided between the original Twelve tribes of Israel after they were delivered from Egypt; and a wider one, as given in the Book of Deuteronomy ( Deuteronomy 11:24, Deuteronomy 1:7), indicating the territory that will be given to the children of Israel slowly throughout the years, as explained in Exodus 23:29 and Deuteronomy 7:22). 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. The views expressed in this article belong to the author and do not necessarily reflect the editorial policy of Middle East Monitor. Goliath is a particular kind of expose-minded, documentary-broadside journalism whose place we generally recognize and respect. The rise of Lieberman more or less demarcates Blumenthal’s temporal focus, though Blumenthal is good about providing contextual analysis to contemporary matters.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.
