We felt it was a better translation of it. Ian Black opens his excellent new history of the Israel-Palestine conflict, Enemies and Neighbours , with a note on terminology titled Language Matters. Words matter. They are the building blocks of the contradicting narratives each side has continued telling themselves, and the world. A veteran reporter and former Guardian Middle East editor, Black spent decades immersed in both Israeli and Palestinian societies, fluently speaking their languages. He notes how the Hebrew and Arabic used by the warring communities, as well as their culture and daily lives, have been affected and formed by the conflict. And how the Arabs living in Palestine began to define themselves as a distinct national group, in a large part as a reaction to the Zionist arrival and entrenchment.
Make Your Own List. The author and political blogger chooses five books on the Israel-Palestine conflict and compares the Palestinians to the Jews in diaspora: as the land disappears under their feet, their identity grows stronger.

This is very important because the ethnic cleansing of Palestine is the original sin of Zionism and the root of the current problem. Pappe is part of a group called the New Historians or Revisionist Historians who have undermined the traditional narrative of the birth of the Jewish state. But Pappe is an anti-Zionist Jew, the son of Holocaust survivors, and a proponent of the one-state solution.
