“The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel”
The Arab-Israeli conflict dominates the daily headlines with buzzwords such as “land for peace”, “occupied Palestinian territories” and “illegal settlements.” These warped notions have taken root in the past two decades and now seem to be accepted as indisputable truths.
The crucial facts of this conflict have long been dormant. In the words of Minister Moshe Yaalon, Vice-Premier of Israel, “’The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel’ comes to fill this knowledge void” by expounding on the historical connection of the Jewish people to their ancestral land; the revival of their national aspirations in the modern Zionist movement; the recognition of their collective, national rights in international law; and the insidious violation of these rights during the British Mandate period, up to the proclamation of the State of Israel in 1948.
In about a hundred pages, ‘The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel’ offers the reader a gradual level of factual detail, from a short, comprehensive summary to an in-depth review and further references to many online authoritative sources. This book is not a substitute for the elaborate scholarly treatises which address these complex issues. It is a handy and invaluable resource for all those who believe in the primacy of facts over opinion and myth, and especially to students who are repeatedly confronted by emotionally charged falsehoods.
