Ilan Pappé is a fraudulent historian who has been found to falsify sources numerous times to twist history to fit his anti-Zionist ideology.

He attended a Zoom call over the weekend where he apparently made up another "fact" out of thin air:

The Israeli historian who supports the Palestinian cause, Professor Ilan Pappé , said that it is not possible to coexist with Zionism because it is “an evil that must be eradicated,” and peace cannot be reached with the Zionist entity, but rather it must be dismantled and eliminated.

In a Zoom symposium for intellectuals, most of whom are Palestinians, Pappé said that Zionism, since its inception, has been working to eliminate the Palestinian people and their cause and not to coexist with them.

Pappe continued in his lecture: “Zionism has tried to displace and kill the Palestinian people since 1929, during the Nakba in 1948, and after the Nakba and the (1967) Naksa and all the attacks that followed until this day. This was clearly demonstrated in the aggressive war on the Gaza Strip, and they will continue their aggressive approach. But the Palestinian National Movement and the Palestinian people always surprised the Zionists and rose again despite the endless financial, military and political support from Western colonialism for Zionism and the Zionist entity.”

Everything he says is a lie, and an easily proven lie. Indeed, most of what he claims has already been debunked. 

But this little speech includes something seemingly new: the claim that Zionism has tried to displace and kill the "Palestinian people" since 1929. 

Where does he get that from?

In the book that made him famous, "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine," Pappé only mentions 1929 in romantic terms. He classifies the horrific 1929 pogroms where gangs of Arabs murdered every Jew they could find and raped and dismembered women as a mere "uprising." And he writes it was an uprising against British policy, not Zionism.

If the ethnic cleansing of Arabs began in 1929, wouldn't his 384 page book about supposed Jewish ethnic cleansing of Arabs even make a passing mention of this root cause?

What seems to have happened is that there has been an attempt by Israel haters to say that "history didn't begin on October 7." But if you look at the history of who has killed whom first between Arabs and Jews in Palestine, the Arabs win that contest hands down - murdering Jews in Safed in 1834, murdering Jews in Palestine in 1920, 1921 and especially 1929.

As a fake historian, Pappé must show that the murderous 1929 rampage of Arabs against Jews in Hebron, Jerusalem, Motza and Safed were justified, just as he attempts to justify October 7. So he makes up a new accusation, that the righteous Arab rapists were not engaging in ethnic cleansing but responding to one. 

This is an accusation that Pappé  himself has apparently never made before, even though this is his main area of supposed expertise.

How convenient!

An additional irony is that the 1929 pogroms resulted in the actual ethnic cleansing of Jews from a number of communities that they lived in. No Arabs were forced to leave their homes - only Jews. 

Pappe isn't concerned with that ethnic cleansing.
