Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - Ilan Pappe and the foundation yth of Israel

In this week’s program, we'll have a conversation with prominent Israeli scholar Ilan Pappé about his new book The Idea of Israel, A History of Power and Knowledge. In it, Pappe examines the way successive generations of Israeli historians have framed the 1948 conquest as a “liberation campaign,” and created a foundation myth that went unquestioned in Israeli society until the 1990s.
 
Mr. Pappe's new book has been described as a powerful and urgent intervention in the war of ideas concerning the past, and the future, of the Israel and Palestine.
