Rape of Palestine and the Struggle for Jerusalem
Lionel L. Casper
Today we are witnessing the struggle for Jerusalem. As the current Intifadah rages throughout Israel, and international leaders call for the establishment of a Palestinian state, it appears the struggle will be a long and painful one.
An important and timely analysis, this book is based on historical, biblical, and contemporary resources.
This detailed book begins with the period immediately following the death of the ‘father of Zionism’, Theodore Herzl, and provides an important exploration of the historical and political background that colors the Arab-Israeli conflict. From Chaim Weizmann and Lord Balfour, to Yasser Arafat and Bill Clinton; from the Partition Plan, to the Six Day War, to the Oslo peace process, The Rape of Palestine explores fluctuations and changes in policy during the twentieth century, and their consequences that are unfolding to this day.
Since we cannot defeat Israel in war we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine and establish a sovereignty there, and we use it as a springhead to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel. Yasser Arafat on Jordan TV (1993) on the same day Arafat signed the declaration of peace agreement with Israel

an invaluable resource for those interested in studying more about the state of Israel… if you are a scholar of the history of Israel, or just interested, you cannot afford to miss this book. Rabbi Bernhard H. Rosenberg, the New York Board of Rabbis’ bulletin
If one is looking for as much information and analysis as possible – from one book – about the Jewish people’s 100-year struggle to build and keep a Jewish state, then this is that book… …the idiosyncratic focus on Jerusalem… adds a religious context to the comprehensive diplomatic and historical information that will no doubt make Casper’s work an important reference book on Zionism for many years to come. Carl Hoffman, Esra Magazine
