Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calm and Logical Defence of Israel's Legal Rights December 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have attended a few of Mr. Benzimra's lectures on the legal rights of Israel. It's admirable that he decided to publish his findings in a book. Israel is the only country in the world, which is so mercilessly scrutinized and attacked to the point where many are against its very existence. Even many defenders of the country think that it was created after World War II as a "gift" to the Jews from the European nations, which felt guilty about the Holocaust. And I won't even go into the Arab idea of Israel as an evil Jewish conspiracy trying to destroy Islam.

The whole issue is so deeply emotionally charged that it is refreshing to see somebody like Mr. Benzimra chiming in. His background in engineering has helped him bypass all the emotions involved and present a cold factual account of the issue. The facts he presents are not new, but in order to get them you need to sift through thousands of pages of historical books, where the legal problems are buried under the descriptions of numerous events.

The author convincingly shows that the state of Israel was not a result of a guilty conscience or an invasion - the reasons for its existence are rooted deeply in the ancient history and many legal decisions made during the 20th century.

Israel has a claim to that land starting from the antiquity - there is abundant evidence of massive Jewish presence in historical documents and archaeological finds. Even after the Romans expelled the majority of the Israelites, there still have always been Jews living there. Even the name "Palestina" was invented by the Romans to confront Jews, by referring to a people that disappeared long time ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legal Rights to Judea and Samaria November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written and easy to read book setting out the truth
of the ownership of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) under international law, and detailing how those rights have been ignored by the Arab world, the international forums, and Israel itself. It shows how good propaganda and fiction can override in the popular mind the factual truth of any situation and constitutes a warning to the Western world to look at the facts before making a political judgement or decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is a Must November 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book a week ago, I can't stop reading, checking the notes, viewing legal documents, this is far more than having ones own library.
absolute monumental work by the author......unbelievable, this book is fully documented by written unassailable facts....
The historical narration from 1200 BCE to today with formidable legal tracking will surely clarify many minds; answer any questions with perfect accuracy.
Bravo for an unbiased and complete recital.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone who wants to truly... May 16, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
know the background of the Levantine Conflicts. With all the whoopderah of folk's signs stating "Israel violates International Law", it becomes obvious that they don't know what they are talking about, once you know the basics of the International Laws and structures that apply, where they came from, and how they were implemented. A truly enlightening read. Wonderful reference as well.
