The Jewish-Palestinian conflict has been going on for more than a century. Some call it the 'Jewish-Arab conflict', others call it the 'Israeli-Arab conflict'. One way or another, the basic premise underlying this or that hyphenated wording, is that this conflict is symmetrical, namely, it has two sides.

This book argues that this premise is wrong. This conflict has only one side, the Arab side or rather the Arab-Palestinian side. The bloody conflict, which has been going on for more than a century, stems from one and only one reason - the Palestinians' opposition to all the basic assumptions of Zionism: the very existence of a Jewish people, it's right to self-determination in the land of Israel, and the Jewish right to a nation-state.

This is the root of the conflict and that is why the book is called 'The Palestinian Conflict'. Jews have no conflict of principle with the Palestinians, and as history shows and this book presents, the Jewish side was always ready for far-reaching compromises to end the incessant cycle of violence perpetuated always by Arabs. From the conflict's definition, stems its solution: the day the Palestinians recognize the very existence of the Jewish people and its connection to the land of Israel (the two principles mentioned, by the way, in the Koran), the conflict will come to an end.

Precise, provocative, yet ultimately persuasive

Manor's short study tracks the history of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict from the late 19th century down to today. While not always a pleasant narrative to read, it should be required for any who seek to know how and why this tragedy came among us, and how an exit from it can yet become a reality. One of the several strengths of Manor's work is his unflinching expose of the hypocrisies, inaccuracies and inconsistencies with which it is (and has been) viewed.

An important book

I read the book twice. It was enlightening. The book layouts an important discussion that appear on the news all the time. Prof Manor, a known historian, gives an interesting spotlight about the existence of the israeli nation in israel. Moral and historical questions get new prospective due to the presentation of new facts that are vital for the understanding of the history and reality.
The book give an interesting analysis of the historical fact that are bound to the decisions taken by the leaders and other audiences.

A book you can't put down once you begin it

I highly recommend this book. The author expresses himself honestly, easily, and articulately.

He describes the history and background of the area and the differences of opinion between residents of different religions who are hostile to one another while living as neighbors with each claiming ownership of the country.

He answers all questions and accusations that arise during a conversation or discussion on the Palestinian issue, accurately, clearly, and to the point.

It was undoubtedly written for people who are not familiar with the conflict and want to understand once and for all what is really happening in the area so that they’ll be able to form an opinion based on facts.

It has helped me too in being able convincingly to counter arguments with people who’ve formed opinions without knowing the facts.
