“The Hidden History of Zionism” is a meticulous documentation of previously unavailable data on the process of conquest inflicted on Zionism's own victims, the Palestinians. It reveals a tragedy in many stunning, ironic, and significant ways parallel to that of the Jews themselves in Nazi Germany. No reader of this remarkable study will ever again perceive Israel and the Zionist movement in the same light.

The Hidden History (155 pages) explores four myths:

(1) that of "A land without a people for a people without a land";

(2) the myth that Israel is a "democracy" (no more a real democracy than apartheid South Africa was);

(3) that security is the motor force of Israeli foreign policy;

(4) that of Zionism as the moral lagatee of the victims of the Holocaust. The shocking truth is that Zionist leaders consciously sought the financial and military sponsorship of the most anti-Semitic regimes of Europe to push Jews into becoming colonizers afar -- a process which included active collaboration with the Nazi leaders themselves. Zionist leaders *opposed* Jewish resistance and *opposed* escape by Jews to other countries. That is, when Zionist pioneers had a choice between the state of Israel and *actually* *saving* Jews, they always chose the state of Israel. For example, Israeli Prime Minister Ben Gurion himself said that if he had the opportunity to save *ALL* the Jewish children of the Holocaust and not have a Zionist state in Palestine, or save only a *handful* of the Jewish children of the Holocaust and *have* the state of Israel, he would choose the latter!

Ralph Shoenman was Executive Director of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. He secured the release of political prisoners in many countries and initiated the International Tribunal on U.S. war crimes in Indo-China, of which he was Secretary General. He is Director of the Palestine Campaign which calls for an end to all aid to Israel and for a democratic and secular re-unified Palestine.

Other books include "Prisoners of Israel", 'Death and Pillage in the Congo: A Study of Western Rule", and "Bertrand Russell: Philosopher of the Century".

Rabbi Elmer Berger: "Schoenman has done a remarkable job compressing an encyclopedia of information. ...He proves, with extensive documentation, that the best sources for explaining the real dynamics of Israeli policies are the standard works of Zionism's architects [*themselves*!]. ...The [book] is indispensable."
