Review

"The Forgotten Palestinians strings together fragments, events, documents, and interviews into a coherent and convincing narrative in a way that will certainly lend itself to advancing future studies. In this way, Pappé’s book is also a cornerstone study, and one that will certainly produce many more in the same tradition, making this book both overdue and timely."—Ryvka Barnard, Arab Studies Journal
(Ryvka Barnard Arab Studies Journal)

". . . an essential contribution." — Magid Shihade, Journal of Palestine Studies
(Magid Shihade Journal of Palestine Studies)

Book Description

In this book, historian Ilan Pappé examines how Israeli Palestinians have fared under Jewish rule and what their lives tell us about both Israel's attitude toward minorities and Palestinians' attitudes toward the Jewish state.

It should be mandatory reading for all politicians and all politically-historically interested people. Throught the course of recent events concerning this region no-one seems to ask "Why? What happened before this?" "What led to this reaction?" Invariably, the 'what came before' is left unexamined in the dimness of the past. Forgotten.
This book brings the chain of past events back into the light of consciousness. Irrespective of ones conviction it is vitally important to be aware of the fact.

Again, Pappe has been brave to criticize Israel. Prominent Jewish authers, like Pappe, Norman Finkelstein, and Noam Chomsky have been courageous to speak out against the atrocious treatment of Palestinians. The book focuses on arab citizens within Israel(a minority of Palestinians, but accurately analyzes their discrimination in housing, civil rights, and education.
It is important to remember the millions of Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza, as well as refugees in neighboring countries. A system of ethnic cleansing and apartheid causes them to suffer injustices.

Remember that Pappe himself is Jewish, and one must not be silenced by critics equating any criticism of Israel as "anti-semitic." It's not "anti-semitic" to criticize Israel. It's only humane.

All negative reviews of this book seem to be represented by people who are not interested in the truth and are only interested in personaly attacking and discrediting the author, without ANY basis to their claims,in order to prevent the truth about Israel'e apartheid regime from being unveiled let alone debated.

I recomend this book and his other one called "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine". Munther Fahmi, a Jerusalem Bookseller who reads what he sells.

Ilan Pappe has once again proven that he is one of the best historians on the Palestinian plight which has been disregarded and distorted by the embedded Western media and their mendacious mob. I highly recommend this insightful book along with his other wonderful work, "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine." Your reward will be knowing that you are on the right side of history.

Hard to read, but necessary reading for Jew, Gentile, Arab. We all live in this world. Such a sad commentary on how we can't get along,
