Neither Jewish morality nor Jewish tradition can be used to disallow terror as a means of war... We are very far from any moral hesitations when concerned with the national struggle. First and foremost, terror is for us a part of the political war appropriate for the circumstances of today...

The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians (Updated Edition)
by Noam Chomsky
Foreword by Edward W. Said
South End Press 1999; ISBN 0-896-08601-1
First published in 1983, Fateful Triangle is a comprehensive indictment of what Noam Chomsky calls the disgraceful and extremely dangerous policy the United States has enacted towards Israel, particularly with regard to Israels actions concerning the Palestinians.
Supporters of Israel must willfully overlook or deny that nations long history of human rights violations and military aggression, Chomsky writes, and they will continue to do so as long as Israel is strategically useful towards the U.S. aim of eliminating possible threats, largely indigenous, to American domination of the Middle East region.
In the course of elaborating his argument, Chomsky cuts through the myths and distortions that appear in mainstream media accounts; the damning facts that he so systematically assembles portray a government more brutally and overtly racist, perhaps, than even apartheid-era South Africa.
Three new chapters, drawing upon material from Z magazine and other publications, incorporate such developments as the Palestinian uprising, Israels war on Lebanon, and the ongoing peace process.
Chomskys seminal tome on Mideast politics has become a classic in the fields of political science and Mideast affairs. For its tenth printing, Chomsky has added chapters bringing the book completely up to date, with a new preface by Chomsky, a new foreword from Palestinian author and activist Edward W. Said, and new material on the Intifada, the ongoing Israeli-PLO peace process (including the Oslo and Wye accords), and Israels war against Lebanon.

The Question of Palestine
by Edward W. Said
Vintage Books 1992; ISBN 0-679-73988-2
In these times of turmoil, this is an essential reading for anyone looking to better understand why [Israel] a nation partly built by extermination camp survivors is now creating an apartheid nation, shooting 9-year old children in the head and forming a bantustan in Gaza and other occupied territories. All of this with the full support from the US, a kind of blind support the South African white regime was never allowed to enjoy.

A Land without a People:
Israel, Transfer and the Palestinians, 1949-96
by Nur Masalha, Palestinian scholar
London: Faber and Faber ltd., 1997; ISBN 0-571-19100-2
Details how the Zionists planned and implemented programmes to rid the Promised Land of its native people. He explains that this policy continued well after the 1948-49 war and involved not just the politicians and military forces, but also Israeli intellectuals. It included transfer, massacres as in the case of Kfir Qasim housing demolitions and expulsions.
Expulsion of the Palestinians:
The Concept of Transfer in Zionist Political Thought, 1882-1948
by Nur Masalha
Institute for Palestine Studies 1992; ISBN 0-887-28242-3
Almost entirely based on declassified Israeli archival materials, Dr. Masalhas sober and carefully researched account shows conclusively that transfer a euphemism for expulsion was from the start an integral part of Zionism... (an) impressive and timely book... quietly devastating research...
Rt. Hon. Lord Gilmore
The Guardian (London)
[Dr. Masalha] shows using documents from the Israeli archives, that the flight of the Arab population from what became Israel in 1948 which Israels first president, Chiam Weizmann hailed as a miraculous clearing of the land was in fact less than a miracle than the culmination of over a half century of effort, plans and (in the end) brute force.

Conquest Through Immigration:
How Zionism Turned Palestine Into a Jewish State
by George W. Robnett
This work grew out of the authors tour of the Holy Land nearly three decades ago, which brought him into intimate contact with the pitiable plight of the Palestinian refugees condemned to live in wretched camps on UN relief.
The author examines the history of Palestine, from Biblical times to the present, sketching the successive forces which have influenced that history, including the modern role of the Soviets, British and Americans, showing how their meddling has engineered the Palestinians dispossession. Also included is an absorbing analysis of how Zionists collected money from Americans in the 1950s and 60s and a penetrating, prescient critique of Israeli democracy.
The Founding Myths of Israel
by Zeev Sternhell, Israeli historian
Princeton University Press; ISBN 0-691-00967-8
[A] fiercely polemical but assiduously researched demolition job on...comfortable myths... The central myth Sternhell attacks is that of the socialist, liberal and democratic values of Israels pioneers.
Democracy in Israel
by Norman F. Dacey
Noted economist and bestselling author Norman Dacey blows the whistle on the claim that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East in this concise but thorough analysis of Israels very undemocratic institutions and practices.
Dacey demonstrates systematic suppression of the Palestinians; second-class status for Christians and other non-Jews; inequality of women; the plight of the half-Jewish mamzerim (illegitimate in Israeli law even if their parents are married!); discrimination against black and Oriental Jews; police state powers; and many other features of Israeli law and Israeli policy that give the lie to the fiction that the Zionist state is a democracy.
by Shlomo Hillel
Collins; ASIN 0-002-17984-9
The case of the Iraqi Jews is the most well known, and is documented in several books. The Zionist underground, backed by Mossad le-Aliya, the forerunner of the Israeli security service, sent agents provocateurs abroad to create conditions whereby Jews would leave their homes and come to Israel.
As a result of Mossad activities, in the space of a few weeks more than 120,000 Jews almost the entire community in Iraq were forced to leave their homes and possessions for Israel. Until the onset of Zionist-Palestinian conflict and the inflaming of political tensions by Britains stooge regime under King Feisal and Prime Minister Nuri Said in Iraq, Jews had lived there without incident for 2,500 years, since the Babylonian exile from biblical Palestine.
Jewish History, Jewish Religion:
The Weight of Three Thousand Years
by Israel Shahak
Pluto Press, 1994; ISBN 0-745-30819-8
This stunning, powerful work, with a foreword by Gore Vidal, is essential reading... Drawing on a masterly study of the Jewish Talmud and rabbinical laws, Shahak brilliantly traces the long Jewish record of vicious hostility toward non-Jews, and particularly against Christianity. He reveals the destructive role Jews have played throughout history on behalf of tyrannical rulers. Written by a Polish-born Jew and Holocaust survivor who spent his childhood in the wartime Warsaw ghetto and the Belsen concentration camp.
After moving to Palestine in 1945, he worked for years as a Professor of Organic Chemistry. MIT professor Noam Chomsky calls Shahak an outstanding scholar, with remarkable insight and depth of knowledge, and praises his work as informed and penetrating, a contribution of great value. Deeply probing the roots of Jewish chauvinism and arrogant hostility toward non-Jews, Shahak shows how Jews are encouraged to regard non-Jews as spiritually and morally unclean subhumans. As a result, warns Shahak:
Israel as a Jewish state constitutes a danger not only to itself and its inhabitants, but all Jews, and to all other peoples and states in the Middle East and beyond.

The Palestinian Catastrophe:
The 1948 Expulsion of a People From Their Homeland
by Michael Palumbo
There are in fact many Jewish movements, groups and organizations whose ideology regarding Zionism and the so-called State of Israel is that of the unadulterated Torah position that any form of Zionism is heresy and that the existence of the so-called State of Israel is illegitimate.
Neturei Karta - Jews United Against Zionism
In addition to condemning the central heresy of Zionism, we also reject its policy of aggression against all peoples. Today this cruelty manifests itself primarily in the brutal treatment of the Palestinian people. We proclaim that this inhuman policy is in violation of the Torah.
NKI seeks peace and reconciliation with all peoples and nations. This is especially needed in our relations towards the Islamic world where Zionism has for 53 years done so much to ruin Jewish - Muslim understanding.
We welcome the assistance of all men of good will and stand ready to assist all whose agenda coincides with ours.

Particular emphasis is given here to terror including murder against thought criminals who question the Holocaust story that six million Jews were systematically killed during the Second World War.

With a well-documented record of bigotry and crime, they pose a serious danger to our society, and to men and women everywhere who treasure freedom.

Zionisms legacy of ethnic cleansing
Part 1: Israel and the Palestinian right of return
While many Palestinians fled to avoid the war [of 1948], most left out of fear of what might happen to them at the hands of Zionist terrorists. One of the most notorious incidents was the Deir Yassin massacre where 250 men, women and children were murdered in cold blood by Menachem Begins Irgun group, as it went from house to house to drive out the Palestinians.
Zionisms legacy of ethnic cleansing
Part 2: Israeli expansion creates more Palestinian refugees
The tragic irony of the Zionist solution to the oppression of the Jewish people traditionally and historically connected with a struggle for tolerance and freedom has been the brutal suppression of another oppressed people [the Palestinians]. In consequence, the right-wing forces cultivated by the Zionist state now threaten to reproduce within Israel the same conditions of dictatorship and civil war from which an earlier generation of Jews fled.
Israels war measures and the legacy of Zionism
Israel was established through a military struggle to wrest control of the land from its Arab inhabitants, beginning with a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation that drove more than three quarters of a million Palestinian Arabs from their homes.
The founding principle of the Israeli state was the assertion of the ethnic and religious interests of Jews over those of Arab Muslims. Any criticism of this inherently anti-democratic and repressive standpoint was denounced by Israels Zionist rulers and their apologists as an expression of anti-Semitism.
In order to justify Israels creation, Zionist leaders for 40 years denied the very existence of a Palestinian people. Their central slogan was: A land without people for a people without land. In official proclamations, the land that became Israel was portrayed as largely uninhabited prior to the arrival of Jewish settlers [invaders].

The political dead end of Labour Zionism:
Part 1 The origins and class character of political Zionism
The core premise of Zionism was that Jews everywhere constituted a single nation with permanent and exclusive rights to occupy Palestine land. This was embodied in the slogan, A land without people for a people without land.
But Palestine was not an uninhabited territory. A Zionist state for the Jews in Palestine could only be established at the expense of the existing population. The very conception of the Zionist state was based upon profoundly undemocratic principles: the denial of the rights of non-Jews already living there.
Part 2 The convergence of the Labour Zionists and Revisionist Zionism
Part 3 The June 1967 Six Day War A turning point in the evolution of Israel
The Zionist utopia of a national state in which the Jews of the world could find liberty, equality and social justice has been realised in the form of a capitalist entity created through the dispossession of another people.
It has been maintained through brutal wars and repression beyond Israels borders, and mounting social inequality at home. As the murderous actions of the extreme right-wing zealots cultivated by the Zionist state have shown, there is a real danger that Israel will itself reproduce the very conditions of dictatorship and civil war from which earlier generations of European Jews had fled.
