The conflict in Palestine is tragic in many respects - it seems eternal, and it has lasted a long time and seems to have no end. The whole ruling capitalist world including its mass media machinery creates extremely close attention, but very little is done to stop open barbarism that is about the super strong Israeli side that continually oppress and humiliate its weak counterpart, i.e., Palestinian semi-sate. However, the heavy price for these militaristic demos is normally paid by the masses, mainly from Palestinian side.
Book written by Akiva Orr and Moshe Machover between 1957-1961, before either had broken with the Israeli Communist Party, highlighting Israel's involvement in the Suez Crisis on the side of Britain and France as a contrived piece of foreign policy and not the "war of no choice" which it was described as.
Ehud Ein-Gil looks at the proposals of maverick zionists for solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict via forms of federalism which, while themselves weighted heavily against the Palestinians, do signal the usefulness of federalism for socialists in proposing how Israelis and Palestinians can live together on equal terms.
Akiva Orr looks at the failure of Israel's founders to provide a source for modern Jewish identity via a secular Jewish state, providing an original analysis of the arguments around the construction of Israeli and Jewish identities using source material from government debates translated for the first time.
