Israeli Historians Ask: What Really Happened 50 Years Ago?

Issue: 1998, Volume 31, Issue 1
Subject: History|Land and Homes|War/Conflict|Zionism
Author: Pappe, Ilan
Issue Description: This issue’s feature article by Ilan Pappe, an historian at Haifa University, challenges Israel’s official account of what happened 50 years ago in Palestine. Dr. Pappe is one of a growing number of Israeli historians whose analyses of newly released documents by the U. S., England and Israel have led them to conclude that what really happened back then is far closer to what Palestinians have been saying all along.

The Jews of Iraq

Issue: 1998, Volume 31, Issue 2
Subject: Civil Rights|History|Iraq|Zionism
Author: Giladi, Naeim
Issue Description: In our previous Link, an Israeli historian looked at the hundreds of thousands of indigenous Palestinians whose lives were uprooted to make room for foreigners who would come to populate confiscated land. Most were Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe. But over half a million other Jews came from Islamic lands. Zionist propagandists claim that Israel “rescued”these Jews from their anti-Jewish, Muslim neighbors. One of those “rescued” Jews— Naeim Giladi— knows otherwise.

Politics Not As Usual

Issue: 1998, Volume 31, Issue 3
Subject: Human Rights|Land and Homes|Media|Politics
Author: Driver, Rod
Issue Description: Rod Driver is running for the United States Congress from Rhode Island’s second district. No stranger to politics— he was elected four times to Rhode Island’s state legislature— Driver is now doing something no other candidate for federal office has ever done. He’s telling his constituents how their tax dollars are being used to dispossess and torture Palestinians. And he’s doing it by showing on television graphic film of Palestinian parents and their children being dragged kicking and screaming from their home as a bulldozer moves in to turn it all to rubble. (Channel 12 in Rhode Island prefaces Driver’s TV ad with the disclaimer: “The following political advertisement contains scenes which may be disturbing to children. Viewer discretion is advised.”) Why, at 65, spend thousands of your own dollars on behalf of Palestinians? That’s what we asked Professor Driver to explain in this issue.

Israel's Bedouin: The End of Poetry

Issue: 1998, Volume 31, Issue 4
Subject: Civil Rights|Human Rights|Land and Homes
Author: Kelley, Ron
Issue Description: A cable TV programmer in Manhattan called me to ask if I'd like to see a documentary on the Bedouin of Israel.  It's rather extraordinary, he said.  The day after viewing Ron Kelley's documentary, I phoned him at his home in Michigan and invited him to tell his story to our Link readers.  He agreed in the hope that "the article can draw a little attention to the problem at hand."  The problem at hand is the destruction of a people.

Dear NPR News

Issue: 1998, Volume 31, Issue 5
Subject: Media
Author: Abunimah, Ali
Issue Description: Ali Abunimah, widely known today for his association with the Electronic Intifada website, confronted National Public Radio in 1997-98 with a stream of e-mails about its Middle East coverage, using plain facts, humor and irony to call attention to historical inaccuracies, the use of Israeli euphemisms (i.e., “rubber bullets”), and failures to report on settlement growth, Palestinian deaths, home demolitions and collective punishments. Several of Abunimah’s most compelling letters to NPR are reprinted in this issue.

The Children of Iraq: 1990-1997

Issue: 1997, Volume 30, Issue 1
Subject: Human Rights|Iraq|Politics|War/Conflict
Author: Kelly, Kathy
Issue Description: More Iraqi children have died as a result of our sanctions on Iraq than the combined toll of two atomic bombs on Japan and the recent scourge of ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia. Kathy Kelly, it should be noted, is a pacifist She's against all wars. But her article is about these children. And the legitimate question for all peoples of good will, pacifist or not, American or not, is whether the preventable deaths of over 600,000 children under 5 years of age is an appropriate sanction to levy on any country, anywhere, any time?

Remember the [USS] Liberty

Issue: 1997, Volume 30, Issue 3
Subject: History|Politics|U.S.S. Liberty|War/Conflict
Author: Borne, John
Issue Description: This issue includes a memorandum by Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “I have never believed that [Israel’s] attack on the USS Liberty was a case of mistaken identity,”Moorer writes. “[It was] a wanton sneak attack that left 34 American sailors dead and 171 seriously injured. . . . I have to conclude that it was Israel’s intent to sink the Liberty and leave as few survivors as possible.”

U. S. Aid to Israel: The Subject No One Mentions

Issue: 1997, Volume 30, Issue 4
Subject: Politics|U.S. Aid
Author: Curtiss, Richard
Issue Description: The United States has leverage over Israel— annual grants and loans in the billions of dollars— if it ever chooses to exercise it. In addition to the familiar figure of $3 billion or so that is handed over every year to Israel, the true cost to the American taxpayer is far more. From 1949 through October, 1997, benefits to Israel from U.S. aid totaled nearly $85-billion, including grants, loans, “non-foreign aid,”and interest Israel accrued by receiving its foreign aid as a lump sum early in the fiscal year
(rather than quarterly as is the case with all other foreign aid recipients). It cost American taxpayers $50-billion in interest costs to provide that aid. In that time period, Israelis received nearly $15,000 per citizen from the U.S. alone, and more than $20,000 when German assistance is included.
