Yehoshua Porath of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has written what will undoubtedly become the standard reference work of the history of the Palestinian national movement, and deservedly so: this despite the fact that at times he seems unable to free himself from his political prejudices, and ab­dicates his professed role of detached historian to don the mantle of the partisan adversary.

La tâche d'une publication révolutionnaire est de dévoiler la nature réelle et les intentions secrètes des protagonistes de cette guerre, de dire aux ouvriers que cette guerre n'est pas la leur, que les directions palestino-progressistes n'ont rien de révolutionnaire, comme une propagande droitière où se mêlent la peur et la dramatisation veut le faire croire.
