Following up on their acclaimed book "Bad News from Israel", Greg Philo and Mike Berry present a concise guide to the Israel-Palestine conflict. Uniquely, it shows how there are many different histories of this conflict and discusses the wide range of contending viewpoints. In this book, Berry and Philo discuss the roots of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Instead of choosing an emotional route which stems from the brutilization of Jews in the Holocaust, they have taken the route of examination of facts and evidence, while analyzing the claims produced by both Palestinian and Israeli officials, in an effort to determine which is more veracious.

In this book, Berry and Philo discuss the roots of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Instead of choosing an emotional route which stems from the brutilization of Jews in the Holocaust, they have taken the route of examination of facts and evidence, while analyzing the claims produced by both Palestinian and Israeli officials, in an effort to determine which is more veracious. Based on original sources, it this book proves a number of things:

1) Jews were allowed into Palestine in the late 1800's, as it is the policy of Arabs and Muslims to be accepting of all, especially Jews and Christians.
2) Jews did not have the idea of coexistence in mind; their original plan was expulsion of Arabs from their places of birth.
3) Jews were the ones who created the idea of bombing public areas and institutions.
4) After the birth of the Zionist movement as a political entity, the Jews tried to legitimize their land-grabs by claiming that nothing called Palestine existed, when the founders of the Zionist movement all have declared that they want to colonize "Palestine," using that exact word, showing that Palestine was a recognized area of land prior to the establishment of a European Zionist entity.
5) Since the establishment of the Zionist state, Israel has committed war crimes. They have been condemned for doing so by all of the EU, UN, and Amnesty International. The only country that has not condemned Israel has been the United States, but that's only because they get those big dollars from Jewish donors.

Anyone who wishes to have an objective view of what is really going on in Palestine should read this book, as it provides insights of years of research into a small, 136 page book (excluding footnotes).

This excellent short survey of the Israel/Palestine conflict developed from work done by the Glasgow University Media group for its study of TV news coverage of the conflict. This was first published in 2004 as Bad news from Israel. A new edition, More bad news from Israel, was published in 2011.

The authors look at the history of the conflict, from the origins of Zionism, to the Balfour Declaration, the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948-49, the Suez conflict of 1956, the wars of 1967, 1973 and 1982, the two Intifadas, up to the Sharon government.

Article 11 of the Keren ha-Yesod employment agreements read, "the settler undertakes ... not to hire any outside labour except Jewish labourers."

In 1948 Ben Gurion ordered Jewish forces to "safeguard the entire Yishuv [Jewish community in Palestine] and settlements (wherever they may be), to conquer the whole country or most of it ..."

Menachem Begin said of the 1967 war, "The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him."

In the 1967-70 War of Attrition, 1.5 million Egyptians were forced from their homes; 367 Israeli soldiers and 10,000 Egyptian soldiers and civilians were killed. Between 1967 and 1982, Palestinian guerrillas operating out of Lebanon killed 106 Israeli civilians; Israeli forces killed 3,500 Lebanese civilians and 7,000 Palestinians.

The Palestinians accepted UN resolutions 242 and 338 and the principle of `land for peace'. Israel rejected them. Israeli governments always want more land, not peace.

On 23 September 1997, Hamas sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proposing talks to end the violence and `discussion of all matters'. Two days later Netanyahu ordered the killing of the head of Hamas' Political Bureau, thus wrecking any chance of peace talks.

In 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled by 14-1 that Israel must dismantle the separation wall because it violated international law.

In 2000, Ariel Sharon said, "the new historians should not be taught." In 2001 Sharon's Education Minister ordered new history textbooks for Israel's secondary schools, removing all trace of the influence of the new historians.

Those readers who dare not venture into the thicket of controversial rhetoric blanketing the Arab-Israeli Conflict had best start with this slim pamphlet, which serves as thumbnail history of post-Ottoman/post-colonial Middle East, Zionism, and four generations of strife and state creation.

Meanwhile, the authors pause occasionally to note disagreement among their sources, highlighting forks in the socially constructed path of Arab-Israeli history.

This book is best used to help you decide what book you should read next on this difficult but important topic. But if you don't know much about the Arab-Israeli Conflict and have questions about current crises, reading this book alone will provide a quick and valuable lesson, up to but not including the 2006 Summer Lebanon War.

I was having a hard time putting this book down. It is a really good intro; I came in not knowing anything about the subject really.

My main complaint is that the maps are severely lacking.
