Historian Ilan Pappe on Ten Myths About Israel

On today’s show, we broadcast a talk by outspoken and radical Israeli historian Ilan Pappe, who speaks about the conclusions he documents in his book Ten Myths About Israel. He examines the most contested ideas concerning the origins and identity of the contemporary state of Israel, focusing on “ten myths” repeated endlessly in the media, enforced by the military, and accepted without question by the world’s governments. For students, activists, and anyone interested in better understanding the news, Pappe delivers another groundbreaking study of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
