Inside Story: Israeli-Palestinian talks: A road to peace?

Ben White, author of Palestinians in Israel and Israel Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide, made a guest appearance on Al Jazeera recently, to talk with presenter Mike Hanna as the US coaxes Israel and Palestine into peace talks. Along with Daniel Levy, the director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations and Hussein Ibish, a senior fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine, they discuss whether there is hope for a final solution.

“This book debunks convincingly and forcefully the myth of Israel being ‘the only democracy’ in the Middle East. As this book shows, the treatment of the Palestinians in Israel is the ultimate proof that the Jewish State is anything but democratic.”

Professor Ilan Pappe, University of Exeter and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine and Out of the Frame

“Essential reading to understand why there can never be peace unless Palestinian citizens of Israel are granted full equality, something they are systematically denied by Israel’s aggressive, and increasingly unrestrained Zionist ethnocracy.”

Ali Abunimah, Co-founder of Electronic Intifada, author of One Country

“Ben White offers a holistic view of the Palestine/Israel problem – then goes beyond it to point towards its only just and hopeful solution.  A significant and timely contribution to the political discourse so necessary today.”

Ahdaf Soueif, author of Booker Prize-shortlisted The Map of Love

White T01947

“A very strong and clear voice that does not shun from exposing in full, and in a most accessible manner, the essence of Zionism and Israeli policies in Palestine. In a world confused by competing narratives, disinformation and fabrication, this book is an excellent guide for understanding the magnitude of the crimes committed against the Palestinians and the nature of their present suffering and oppression.”

Professor Ilan Pappe, University of Exeter and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine and Out of the Frame

“This book deals rationally and cogently with a topic that almost always generates considerable heat even just with book titles. The reader may not agree with everything that White asserts but it is a highly commendable effort to throw light on a fraught subject.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
