Ziff, William B. (Bernard), 1898-1953  
The Rape of Palestine

Publisher: Mansfield Center, Conn., Martino, 2009.
xiv, 612 p.; 23 cm. The Rape of Palestine is a scathing indictment of the British administration in Palestine. It is well documented and makes full use of quotations from the writings of non-Jewish persons who served under that administration and themselves complained of anti-Semitism shown by government officials. Among them was Douglas V. Duff, who complained that "it did not pay for one's seniors to think that one had any undue sympathy for the returning Jews". Even if only one-half of the evidence amassed by the author were true, he would have proven that nearly all persons sent out to administer Palestine were anti-Semitic, determined to evade the Mandate and destroy the Jewish national home. Originally published New York & Toronto, Longmans, Green, 1938. Stock#1046. Fine, new from publisher / no dj.

Appr.: | AUD 58.51 CAD 59.14 EUR 40.59 GBP 32.16 JPY 5,500.00 MXN 687.50 ZAR 578.95
