The book is not bad overall, it has some interesting articles with a better percentage of good authors than is typical for collections such as this. I personally do not like collections, but I always pick up Israel-Palestine books, so here I am. I did not wish to give some full rebuttal or critique of every article. So some individual reviews are just bare bones that do not need a full analysis, while others are detailed enough to warrant one. I recommend getting the book if you are an avid reader of the conflict, if you are not, the book might seem distant and unapproachable. I think that a full book by one or two of the authors would have been better to really examine the issue, but what can you do?

Ahmad Moor- Presence, Memory, and Denial

Ahmad Moor is a Palestinian of the occupied Palestinian territories that was able to escape during the second Intifada and obtain an education in the United States. He details basic ideas as to what it is to be a Palestinian in the oPt and the yearning for a peaceful solution to the conflict. He gives a few details about a number of topics such as Zionism and territorial domination.
It is not a poorly written article but it seems Mr. Moor relies on slogans and short confined sentences instead of detailed academic discussion of a topic. If this is your thing then great, but personally I would have liked to get beyond the slogans and into some substance. I respect that while acknowledging the potential for BDS to have an impact on certain aspects of the conflict, one cannot rely on this method alone. It was nice to hear deviation from the usual brouhaha about BDS being the greatest and most original idea since sliced bread, so that I give him credit for.

This book contains much useful information and connecting pieces for Palestinian human rights activists but would be difficult for a beginner to stitch together into a coherent whole. The greatest testimony to its value lies in its perceived threat by several "reviewers" who appear to be standard hasbara agents. I purchased it last year for $10.85 and am astonished at its inexplicably increased market value. As for the "reviewers," let me register just a few points of information: The UN did not establish Israel. UN General Assembly Resolution 181 was simply a recommendation under massive Zionist pressure that was never confirmed by the Security Council, which was instead preparing an alternative plan for a 5-year UN trusteeship - supported by the US - when Zionist terror groups launched Plan Dalet to do the job themselves by ethnically cleansing the largely unarmed and helpless Palestinian population, some three-quarter million of whom were expelled and dispossessed during 1948 and denied their right to return under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and UN Resolution 194 which has been repeatedly reaffirmed by the UN.

Jews from Europe and Brooklyn obviously have no "right to return" to someone else's country and no "people" have the "right of self-determination" by taking land and property away from others by force. In 1947 the Muslim and Christian Arabs were 2/3 the population, owning 94% of the land, whose actual right of self-determination as the majority population of Palestine was denied them by Zionist violence and non-enforcement by the watching world of the UN's own founding principles and purpose.
