Decolonizing Israel, Liberating Palestine

by Jeff Halper - £14.99  Pluto Press (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745343396 | ISBN 10: 0745343392

For decades we have spoken of the 'Israel-Palestine conflict', but what if our understanding of the issue has been wrong all along?
 
This book explores how the concept of settler colonialism provides a clearer understanding of the Zionist movement's project to establish a Jewish state in Palestine, displacing the Palestinian Arab population and marginalizing its cultural presence.
 
Jeff Halper argues that the only way out of a colonial situation is decolonization: the dismantling of Zionist structures of domination and control and their replacement by a single democratic state, in which Palestinians and Israeli Jews forge a new civil society and a shared political community. To show how this can be done, Halper uses the 10-point program of the One Democratic State Campaign as a guide for thinking through the process of decolonization to its post-colonial conclusion.
 
Halper's unflinching reframing will empower activists fighting for the rights of the Palestinians and democracy for all.
