Pressestimmen

"Every community that stands fast, loving its people and its land, its customs and its ways, will be seen, eventually, as worthy of saving. This is because it is our own humanity we are learning from, our own value. There will also arise a special voice to champion us, one that is brave, trustworthy and true. In The Battle for Justice in Palestine it is the voice of Ali Abunimah, fierce, wise - a warrior for justice and peace - someone whose large heart, one senses, beyond his calm, is constantly on fire. A pragmatist but also a poet. This is the book to read to understand the present bizarre and ongoing complexity of the Palestine/Israel tragedy. And though it is filled with the grim reality of this long and deadly, ugly and dehumanizing, conflict, it also offers hope: that as more people awaken to the shocking reality of what has for decades been going on, we can bring understanding and restitution to the Palestinian people. Their struggle to exist in dignity and peace in their own homeland - and this may be the biggest surprise of Abunimah's book - is mirrored in the struggles for survival and autonomy of more than a few of us."
—Alice Walker

"This is the best book on Palestine in the last decade. No existing book presents the staggering details and sophistication of analysis that Abunimah’s book offers. Abunimah’s scope includes an analysis of the politics, economics, environmental policies, identity politics, international relations, academic scholarship and activism, global solidarity, and official and unofficial lobbies that have come to bear on Palestine and the Palestinians. The Battle for Justice in Palestine is the most comprehensive treatment of Palestinian suffering under Israeli control and offers the only possible way to end it. It is a must read for anyone seeking to understand the current situation of the Palestinians and Israel."
—Joseph Massad, Columbia University

"With incisive style and scrupulous attention to documentation and detail, Ali Abunimah's new book offers a complex portrait, from every angle, of the Palestinian struggle for justice today."
—Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director, Jewish Voice for Peace

"A crucially needed dose of educated hope. This is what hits me from this fascinating amalgam of incisive journalism, analytic prose and intellectually compelling vision that emanates from many years of brilliant activism. Sailing effortlessly from the domestic to the global, from Johannesburg to Belfast and from Chicago to Tel Aviv, Ali Abunimah paints a lucid, accessible picture out of a complex web of racism, racialized oppression, and creative resistance. Abunimah does not give us hope; he helps us dig for it within us by meticulously laying out before us the facts, the trends, the challenges and the inspiring resistance to them."
—Omar Barghouti, Palestinian human rights activist, co-founder of the BDS movement, author of Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights

"In The Battle for Justice in Palestine, Ali Abunimah—the most astute commentator writing on Palestine today—bursts the leaky myths of Israeli exceptionalism while carefully examining where the battle for Palestine is currently being waged. Forget the endless “peace process,” which has ushered in little more than massive economic exploitation, tragic environmental degradation, and servile and destructive politics. Focus instead, Abunimah tells us, on the many civil society and campus initiatives around the world that are bravely ushering in a new era of global grass-roots organizing for justice. Rich in information and deep in analysis, The Battle for Justice in Palestine will inspire readers that Palestinian self-determination is not only possible but absolutely necessary."
—Moustafa Bayoumi, author, How Does It Feel to Be a Problem?: Being Young and Arab in America

HASH(0x8ec7b150) von 5 Sternen Searing analysis, well-researched 18. März 2014
Von lourdes d. follins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ali Abunimah's searing analysis of the struggle for Palestinian human rights is presented here in vivid prose with documentation and references that are unassailable. As someone who reads widely on the issue, I found Abunimah's challenge to the claim that Israel must be a "Jewish state" instead of a democratic one where all live equally to be refreshingly blunt in its logic. His assessment of the neoliberal restructuring of Palestine allows us to see this conflict within the global economic and political shifts of the past 40 years. And his chapters dealing with Israel's queer and environmental propaganda wars—pinkwashing and greenwashing—are spot-on.

To be blunt, The Battle for Justice in Palestine will be attacked and slandered by blinkered ideologues who cannot tolerate informed debate on this issue out of fear that Israel will be deligitimized. The tragedy, which Abunimah's book reveals so eloquently, is that Israel is doing a fine job of deligitimizing itself.

HASH(0x8edfbae0) von 5 Sternen An essential and ambitious book 14. März 2014
Von N. Joseph - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having followed Ali Abunimah's work through the Electronic Intifada, a brilliant independent news publication I knew that I was on the right track in educating myself about Palestine/Palestinians and Israel. The hardships and injustices Palestinians have endured under an oppressive Israeli military occupation are numerous. This is a fact. As a trusted voice, a committed activist and passionate advocate for Palestinian rights, Mr. Abunimah puts it all in perspective in his book, The Battle for Justice in Palestine. He does an outstanding job of dissecting and analyzing this conflict to better understand how destructive it has been to Palestinians. His analysis is quite comprehensive in scope; the book is informative and sophisticated on so many levels. In my view, the "peace process" is a facade, a hopeless and tiresome round of meetings and conversations that lead to nowhere. Israel has committed itself to acting with impunity with strong approval from its enablers who still maintain that a two-state solution is the most viable option. Well it no longer is; it is most critical that the world wakes up to this fact. Do yourself a huge favor and read this thought-provoking book. It will educate, inform and most important of all, it will make you realize there is hope. Ali Abunimah is an intelligent and inspiring writer, someone I have tremendous respect and admiration for. I very highly recommend The Battle for Justice in Palestine.

HASH(0x8ec7bde0) von 5 Sternen An Expert Analysis Written for a Diverse Audience 1. April 2014
Von Gus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a social science researcher who studies Palestinians, I read books like this mostly to see how people frame the debate. I study the topic on a daily basis and not much information is new to me. However, this book was still valuable not just because it is an excellent collection of stories directly related to the struggle for equality for Palestinians, but also because of how Ali puts that information together.

He did an outstanding job of writing this book for two groups: Those new to learning about the fight for Palestinian rights and those who have an advanced knowledge of the topic. The book is framed to cover the basics. He addresses whether Israel has a right to exist as a Jewish state (as opposed to a state for all citizens), what happens to Israeli Jews if there is a one-state solution instead of a two-state solution, how foreigners (and Palestinian elitists) are trying to profit from Palestine rather than trying to legitimately solve its problems, the suppression of Palestine solidarity in the U.S., and more. That's a wide range of topics, but they are the basics. The good news for those who have a more advanced knowledge of the topics at hand is that Ali goes into a level of detail which will likely frame these subjects in a way that will teach them something new.

Another strength of this book is in how Ali compares the current issues around the struggle for Palestinian rights with other battles for equality. For example, he goes into detail about the change in Israel's reputation around the world (and in the US) and compares that with the change in American public opinion about gay marriage. This may seem odd on the surface, but not when you realize that a few decades ago a public debate about gay marriage being a basic right would have been unheard of to many Americans. Such is the case with how Americans view Palestine/Israel and there is ample evidence (not typically covered by the mass media in the US) to prove it. Concepts like this take this book beyond just a basic primer of what's happening right now and teaches the reader how to look toward the future and how that impacts the conflict. This book doesn't just say "this is what will happen." It teaches you how to look at the entire debate in a new way, which is why it should be valuable to both new and advanced readers.

Ali's an expert at framing the debate and this book is his best work yet. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about Palestine/Israel.

Von vincent d stravino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
He has researched the topics well and his experiences in the region offer insights unavailable to those who offer "expert" opinions from afar.Few authors cover the region as closely.
Is he balanced? Not in all minds since his perspective is the "other side"of the story which is suppressed in the Western media, especially American.His emphasis on Palestinians is natural just as books authored by Israelis are naturally centered on the Israeli view.
I found his many references scholarly and persuasive.
Any reader convinced that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and most Palestinians are terrorists will learn from this book.

What a refreshing counter to the oppressively suffocating and ubiquitous propaganda in support of Israel. What an eye opener to view the occupation of Palestine from the eyes of an actual Palestinian.
