The basic problem with the Sabagh book is arrogance and hypocrisy. The book does not even come close to being coherent. The book reflects Jim Crow type of arrogance and actually does point directly to typical responses to Commie lies about fake indigenous people.
1 Arabs got to Israel via colonialism
2 Arabs subjected Jews to a Jim Crow culture. Contrary to the authors claims the period of enlightenment was imposed on the region via European coercion and short period of colonial rule.
3 The author even refers to the region Southern Syria, not Palestine.
4 The author does not mention creation of Jordan on 80% of the mandate and the etnic cleansng of Jews from that area. The author basically thinks Jews should stay only if they know their place.
5 The author fails to establish anything close to a Palestinian ethnicity. The authors claims about dialects and cuisine could be made about St Louis, Brooklyn or parts of London.
6 The authors own accounts show Brazilians and Englishmen called Palestinian based upon a relative lived there.
7 The accounts of the author show fluidity of movement around the general region into parts of Jordan and so forth was the norm.
There are no Palestinians and Arabs in allready posses land in abundance and that land was colonized. Any claim that Jews oppressed Muslims is as absurd as claiming Blacks in the South or Indians oppressed whites.
