  • Bernard REGAN: « The Balfour Declaration. Empire, the Mandate and Resistance in Palestine. » Verso 2017, 278p.
    A hundred years later, Bernard Regan recounts the composition of the Balfour Declaration as one of the major events in the history of the Middle East. Offering new insights into the imperial rivalries between Britain, Germany and the Ottomans, Regan exposes British policy in the region as part of a larger geopolitical game. Yet, even then, the course of events was not straightforward, and Regan charts the debates within the British government, the Zionist movement, and the Palestinian groups struggling for self-determination.
  • Henry LAURENS: « Conférence de San Remo. Une base légale à la création d’un État juif en Palestine ? » (OrientXXI, mai 15, 2020): click here!
    Il y a cent ans, une réunion internationale à San Remo consacrait de nouvelles frontières au Proche-Orient et, de facto, le mandat britannique sur la Palestine établi en juillet 1920. Les sionistes y voient l’origine de l’État d’Israël, et Benyamin Nétanyahou a célébré cet anniversaire. Mais cette conférence, qui avait vu s’affronter Britanniques et Français, restera d’abord marquée par ses ambiguïtés concernant le projet sioniste en Palestine.

  • Serraj ASSI & Zachary FOSTER: "'There's No Such Thing as Palestinians': The Ignorant Bigotry of pro-Israel Propagandists” (Haaretz, April 21, 2023): click here!
    Israeli politicians like Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich persistently deny the existence of a Palestinian people [“There is no such thing as a Palestinian nation. There is no Palestinian history. There is no Palestinian language”] but the historical record speaks for itself. Smotrich and pro-Israel U.S. conservatives should listen.

    Incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to advance his mission of retconning Jewish history, one century at a time. His latest efforts were, as usual, designed to paint Palestinians, and Arabs more generally, as responsible for the worst episodes of anti-Jewish oppression over the millennia, in an attempt to reframe Israeli abuses as acts of liberation.

    Could history have taken a different trajectory? Were there points during the past century at which the Palestinians could have influenced the course of events in a different direction?
  • Gideon LEVY & Jehuda SHAUL: "Hébron, la ville où l’essence de l’apartheid israélien éclate au grand jour" (Pour la Palestine, 31 juillet, 2017): click here!
    “Si vous voulez voir l’apartheid israélien en résumé, allez à Hébron. Il n’y pas d’endroit où l’on puisse mieux voir avec une telle clarté éclatante toute une communauté expulsée des maisons de ses ancêtres, des milliers de personnes chassées de leurs magasins…".
