This groundbreaking series of essays answers key questions, such as: What has been the main achievement of the Zionist movement? What accounts for the failure of the Palestinian National Movement to win its struggle against Israel? What do anti-Semitism, colonialism and racism have to do with the Palestinian/Israeli ‘conflict’?
Joseph Massad offers a radical departure from mainstream analysis in order to expose the causes for the persistence of the ‘Palestinian Question’. He proposes that a resolution can be found only when linking the Palestinian Question with the Jewish Question as one and the same question. All other proposed solutions, the author argues, are bound to fail. Solution of the Palestinian Question will not be found unless settler-colonialism, racism, and anti-Semitism are abandoned as the ideological framework for a resolution.
