Blind Reading the Blind: Review of Beinart’s “Crisis of Zionism”

With apologies to those who are reading this as braille or audio, Beinart’s entire thesis depends upon overlooking the fact that Israel is a product of one of the great ethnic cleansing projects (or if you prefer, genocides) of its century. Beinart’s case is therefore that if the initial ethnic cleansing in 1948 was relatively […]
