The Case Against Israel by Michael Neumann
The Case Against Israel argues that Zionism was responsible for the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and that Israel is responsible for its perpetuation. Had they been content with the 1948 borders, peace might have followed the 1967 war when Israel could have backed the creation of a Palestinian state in the occupied territories. Zionist sovereignty - not the massacres or plans for transfer or other blots on Zionist history - made violence inevitable and compromise impossible. Zionists pushed to extend Jewish sovereignty through the settler movement, with the settlements being a renewed mortal threat to the Palestinians that necessitated a violent response. The only solution is for Israel to withdraw, unilaterally, to its 1948 borders.
