Ilan Pappé on The Zionist Ideology of the State of Israel
A lecture given by Ilan Pappé at the Palestine Solidarity Conference in Stuttgart in November of last year. Ilan Pappé is one of Israel’s bravest academics, He is the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2006), and is considered one of the group of so-called “new historians” in Israel, who are re-writing the accepted narrative of the state’s founding.
He is a prominent supporter of the One-State Solution. Before he left Israel in 2008, after being pressured to resign from his university post because of his support for BDS and the academic boycott, he had been condemned in the Knesset; a minister of education had called for him to be sacked; his photograph had appeared in a newspaper at the centre of a target; and he had received several death threats.
