Israel-Palestine Through the Lens of Settler-Colonialism — Professor Ilan Pappe

Once a year – since 2014 – a conference on the Israel Lobby and American Policy has been held in Washington DC at the National Press Club. Sponsored by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, it invites speakers of international importance. Among them in 2017 John Mearsheimer, co-author of the best selling book “The Israel Lobby” and Professor Ilan Pappe, author of “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”- among many other books.

Since critical discussion of US support for Israel is a taboo topic the conference receives no attention from the mass media and very little by the alternative press. This led them to miss a compelling speech by Israeli historian Ilan Pappe. He explained how Israel became a settler colonial state, and that it now ranks among those that have instituted a system of Apartheid similar to that found in post World War II South Africa which was widely condemned by the world. Professor Ilan Pappe concluded that facts on the ground created by Israel with the expansion of settlements now make a two state solution impossible.

In this presentation at the Press Club in Washington DC on March 24, 2017, he had challenged the audience with his conclusion that peace between Israelis and Palestinians can no longer be achieved by the so-called two state solution. Instead, Pappe said the only resolution comes with one democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis with equal rights for both. And this radio program presents some of Ilan Pappe’s thoughts how this may become a reality.

Ilan Pappe has better standing than many other historians because he was born in Haifa and educated in Israel. He was a senior lecturer in political science at the University of Haifa (1984″2007) His critique of the guiding ideas that went into the founding of Israel in 1948 is based on painstaking – and often painful research. He is now professor of history with the College of Social sciences and International Studies at Exeter in the United Kingdom.
