« The Case for Trade with Israel | Main | Team on Trade with Israel »

January 31, 2005



Very good!

Andy Dyer

Karsh is wrong - Ben-Gurion and the others were careful to talk soothingly about the Arabs and not mention "transfer" openly, but he's recorded boasting of how much Israel had already succeeded in doing in 1937 at the Zionist conference. (Morris's response explains two-faced politicians much better than I can do).

And Karsh is wrong about the Peel Committee, which recommended partition and transfer (250,000 Palestinians to lose their homes, 1,250 immigrants to do so) to the British government - which rejected it, as they'd rejected every other suggestion.

Still, this discussion is barren - Israelis have kept the Palestinians out of their homes with guns for 60 years now, but it's coming apart on them. Nobody believes in a "Light unto the Nations" or "Purity of Arms" any more, no Israeli wants to fight. They all want to get out, and all the sons and daughters of the leading Zionists are doing precisely that.
