The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Dar Al Hayat newspaper is publishing episodes from The Ethic Cleansing of Palestine by the Israeli writer Ilan Pappé . They published four episodes so far, and another four are yet to come. Episode 1. Episode 2. Episode 3. Episode 4.
Professor Ilan Pappe is an Israeli revisionist historian and senior lecturer of Political Science at Haifa University, called by some as "the most hated Jew in Israel". He is the author of numerous books, including A History of Modern Palestine, The Modern Middle East, The Israel/Palestine Question and, most recently, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, published in 2006.
Ilan Pappe, while studying history, digged deep in the archives in Israel, the United States and the United Kingdom, learned more about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and found out that what they taught him in Israel was not the only truth. Learning the other side of the story, he came up with a conclusion that this side is the one who's more likely to be stating "facts".
This interview tells more about Ilam Pappe. and so does this one:

Thanks for sharing Ms. Diana. I'd like to link your blog to mine. It's interesting indeed to see that there are a lot of people who find this world still capable of showing a useful seriousness. I'm starting to create a blog that is about correcting different versions of history people here and there may blindly acquire. It will highlight famous names, people who have really corrected history. the url for this blog is: drshawki2.blogspot.com
