The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. By Ilan Pappe

Discussion in 'Politics' started by sameeh55, Oct 1, 2011.

  1. Ilan Pappé (Hebrew: אילן פפה‎; born 7 November 1954[1] in Haifa, Israel) is a professor with the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the UK, director of the university's European Centre for Palestine Studies, co-director of the Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies, and political activist. He was formerly a senior lecturer in political science at the University of Haifa (1984–2007) and chair of the Emil Touma Institute for Palestinian and Israeli Studies in Haifa (2000–2008). He is the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2006), The Modern Middle East (2005), A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples (2003), and Britain and the Arab-Israeli Conflict (1988). He was formerly a leading member of Hadash, and was a candidate on the party list in the 1996 and 1999 Knesset elections.

    Pappé is one of Israel's "New Historians" who, since the release of pertinent British and Israeli government documents in the early 1980s, have been rewriting the history of Israel's creation in 1948, and the corresponding expulsion or flight of 700,000 Palestinians in the same year. He has written that the expulsions were not decided on an ad hoc basis, as other historians have argued, but constituted the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, in accordance with Plan Dalet, drawn up in 1947 by Israel's future leaders.[6] He blames the creation of Israel for the lack of peace in the Middle East, arguing that Zionism is more dangerous than Islamic militancy, and has called for an international boycott of Israeli academics.

    He is a prominent supporter of the One State Solution envisaging one state for Palestinians and Israelis.

    His work has been both supported and criticized by other historians. Before he left Israel in 2008, he had been condemned in the Knesset, Israel's parliament; a minister of education had called for him to be sacked; his photograph had appeared in a newspaper at the centre of a target; and he had received several death threats.

  2. Your quoting of a traitor to Israel sets new lows even for you.

    I have complained about this stupid thread.

    God bless USA and Israel in the war against Islamic Terror.
  3. OK 3770HOMO. What is so strange is that I couldn't find his name in the "SHIT" list! Could't be that you guys did not update your list yet?
  4. I am not him.

    Israel's next move will be to shower the Hamas Islamofascist Bin Laden loving terrorists with white phosphoros, like we did a few years ago. That will teach 'em :D :D :D

    God bless America and Israel, brothers united against the dark forces of Islamic Terror.
  5. LOL! You are so Cuuuuuuuuuuute!!
  6. Are you a gay muzzie? If so, you are superior to a straight muzzie, whatever your terror god says about gays.
  7. No! But I always assumed you to be a couger 3770HOMO! :D
  8. The parts of Ilan Pappe's resume sameeh 'forgot':

    In 1999, Pappé ran in the Knesset elections as seventh on the Communist Party-led Hadash list

    Another of the "new" Israeli historians, Benny Morris, writing about Pappé's book, A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples,[27] in The New Republic magazine, calls Pappé's book "truly appalling." He says it subjugates history to political ideology, and "contains errors of a quantity and a quality that are not found in serious historiography." [28] Morris has said that there is "a correct, 'true' narrative and a distorted, mendacious narrative."

    Pappe about himself: "My bias is apparent despite the desire of my peers that I stick to facts and the "truth" when reconstructing past realities. I view any such construction as vain and presumptuous. "é

    Ilan Pappe - a communist subjugating history to political ideology and openly admitting his unwillingness to stick to facts and the truth.

  9. Don't give up...... put up a good fight.
