From the emergence of Zionism as a response to European antisemitism, through the duplicitous policies of Britain in Mandate Palestine to the establishment of the state of Israel and its role as the USA’s regional gendarme, Against the Racist Endeavour charts the struggles of the Palestinians against colonial oppression, invasive settlement, mass expulsion and war.
That long history has forged a nation whose very survival is a challenge not only to Israel and its imperialist backers but also to the regional powers that have repeatedly betrayed it.
Its future is bound up with the revolutionary overthrow of the existing world order – its refusal to submit is a beacon to all the oppressed.
