Rogan and Avi Shlaim. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, Middle East Quarterly Winter Israeli academics and journalists who call themselves the "New Historians" have been pushing this theme since the late s and The War for Palestine adds little new or original to these efforts except that they have invited some sympathetic Arabists and Arab academics, including Edward Said and Rashid Khalidi, to join in their efforts.
The contributors whitewash the violent Palestinian attempt to abort the United Nations resolution of November They downplay the pan-Arab invasion of the newly-established state of Israel in May euphemized as the "entry of Palestine" by Arab armies.
The War for Palestine: Rewriting the History of 1948
There seems to be a general consensus among the book's contributors and also the publisher that the Arab narrative needs no serious rethinking. A Palestinian by birth, Said has sought to show how Palestinian history differs from the rest of Arabic history because of the encounter with Jewish settlers and to present to Western readers a more broadly representative Palestinian position than they usually obtain from Western sources.
The War for Palestine : Rewriting the History of Eugene L. By all accounts, the Palestine war was one of the most significant milestones in the modern history of the Middle East and remains one of the most intractable conflicts of modern times.
The conventional Israeli version portrays as an unequal struggle between a Jewish David and an Arab Goliath, as a desperate, heroic, and ultimately successful battle for survival against overwhelming odds. In this version all the surrounding Arab states sent their armies into Palestine to strangle the Jewish state at birth and the Palestinians left the country on orders from their own leaders and in the expectation of a triumphal return. A more complex and fair-minded understanding of that past is essential for preserving at least the prospect of reconciliation between Arabs and Israel in the future.
The rewriting of the history of thus remains a practical as well as an academic imperative.
