What is Israel hoping to achieve with its recent withdrawal from Gaza and the buildiing of a 700 km wall? Journalist Jonathan Cook presents a lucid account of the motives. The heart of the issue, he argues, is demography. Israel fears the moment when the region’s Palestinians — Israel’s own Palestinian citizens and those in the Occupied Territories — become a majority. Inevitable omparisons with apartheid in South Africa will be drawn. The book charts Israel’s increasingly desperate responses, including military repression of Palestinian dissent; a ban on marriages between Israel’s Palestinian population and Palestinians living under occupation to prevent a right of return “through the back door;” and the redrawing of the Green Line to create an expanded state. Ultimately, the author concludes, these abuses will lead to a third, far deadlier intifada.
Jonathan Cook, a former staff journalist of the Guardian newspaper, has written for the Times, Le Monde diplomatique, the International Herald Tribune, al-Ahram Weekly, and Aljazeera.net. He is based in Nazareth.
