Disenchantment: The Guardian and Israel

by Daphna Baram
£10.99   paperback  Guardian Books (2008)

Disenchantment: The Guardian and Israel by Daphna Baram The newspaper that was closest to the creation of Israel, The Guardian, now finds itself at the vortex of a worldwide campaign holding it guilty of anti-Zionism, even of anti-Semitism
No outcome could have seemed less likely after the fateful meeting in 1914 of the Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann and the formidable Manchester Guardian editor CP Scott: an encounter which led to the Balfour Declaration of 1917 declaring Britain's backing for a Jewish national home in Palestine. Thirty years later the creation of Israel fulfilled that dream - a dream that was to become a nightmare for the indigenous Arabs.
In Disenchantment, Israeli journalist Daphna Baram follows the decades-long trajectory of the Guardian's relationship with Israel, as the paper strives to match truthful reporting of the Palestinian tragedy with the growing sensitivies of the world Jewish community.
