Original Sins
Reflections on the History of Zionism and Israel
Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi

6" x 9" • 240 pages
ISBN 9781566561303 • hardback • $29.95

Starting from a non-idealizing, non-demonological review of Judaism, Jewish history and anti-Semitism, this book presents a sympathetic analysis of the development of political Zionism - and goes on to show how a dream can become both a living reality and a nightmare. While Beit-Hallahmi does not fault the idea of a Jewish state in the abstract, he shows how Zionism in practice and power becomes a kind of settler colonialism trying to ignore its victims - the Palestinians.

The purpose of Original Sins is to counter the mystification on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict, to examine causes and principles, and to reach an analysis of the current political and moral crisis, in search for a solution to end the suffering on both sides.

Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi is a noted Israeli scholar and author of The Israeli Connection: Who Israel Arms and Why. He teaches at Haifa University.
