Historical Revisionism

17 May 2008

Letter to the editor from The Australian Jewish News.

Paul Dixon's suggestion (Letters 16/5) that the coordinated attacks by five Arab countries on the new state of Israel in 1948 were motivated by the wish to prevent a Jewish takeover of all of Palestine is at best fanciful and at worse something considerably more mischievous. Rather than helping the Palestinian cause, such brazen historical revisionism becomes merely another obstacle to achieving an outcome that meets the legimate national aspirations of both the Jewish and Palestinian peoples.
