The Palestinian Resistance

Availability: Ready to download

The violent resistance of the Palestinian Arabs to dispossession and the loss of their territory has reached the headlines often enough. The policy of hi-jacking civil aircraft may have damaged their image enormously: at least it left no doubt about their courage. And in any case this image has never been more than the sensational concoction of news editors and television The violent resistance of the Palestinian Arabs to dispossession and the loss of their territory has reached the headlines often enough. The policy of hi-jacking civil aircraft may have damaged their image enormously: at least it left no doubt about their courage. And in any case this image has never been more than the sensational concoction of news editors and television producers. Readers of "The Peasants of North Vietnam" will recognize and appreciate Gérard Chaliand's technique of letting men speak for themselves. Here he records the results of an extended visit to the 'front line' along Israel's borders, where he met members of the various groups concerned - El-Fatah, the largest and most moderate; the Marxist PDFLP; and their sympathizers in many refugee camps. The words of these men and women very graphically convey the whole spirit of the resistance movement, with its questions and doubts as well as its stark determination, and incidentally explain a great deal about its origins, aims and organization. In terms which are at once clear and credible Gérard Chaliand presents a picture of a crucially important force in the Middle East.

    Published in 1972, this book is out of date and only of interest to scholars of the conflict. I gave up half way through.
