Professor Efraim Karsh is infamous for his defense of Zionism at any cost. This time, he takes historian and Haaretz journalist Tom Segev to task for accusing Ben-Gurion as "destroyer of Palestinian-Arab society."
Segev belongs to Israel's "New Historians," which are called by Karsh as "revisionists." This term is derogatory. But in the Israeli context, the demystification of Zionism is long overdue. "Israel was born in sin," as the new historians call it. It's the deliberate and aggressive dispossession of the Palestinian People. Karsh tries everything to thwart this truth; at the same time, he accuses Segev and other new historians of skewing the truth.
From the outset, expulsion, and transfer of the indigenous population were at the top of the Zionist political agenda. Proponents were Herzl, Ben-Gurion, Zeev Jabotinsky; you name only a few. Karsh tries to whitewash not only Ben-Gurion but also Theodor Herzl, the driving force of Zionism. Karsh blurs Herzl's real intention in attempting to show Herzl's disinterest in the Palestinians. However, Herzl advised his Zionist followers in the typical hypocritical liberal Zionist manner: To "try to spirit the penniless [Palestinian] population across the border by denying it any employment in our own country … Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.” Separation or transfer was Herzl's solution to the Palestinian "problem." Delinking meant, no Jewish employer should hire a Palestinian. Transfer said, to kick them out of their homeland "gently."
Tom Segev has taken off the hypocritical mask of David Ben-Gurion, which is typical for so-called liberal Zionists like Yitzhak Laor pointed out. Efraim Karsh is a Zionist purist and infamous for bawling out critics of Zionist doctrine. To whitewash, the Zionist commanders don't hold water, knowing Yitzhak Rabin's legacy and Ben-Gurion's "famous" gesture, meaning, expel them from Lydda and Ramle.
Efraim Karsh is famous for twisting the Palestinian legacy. To end the Palestine conflict, the Palestinians have to give up their "genocidal hopes" as Karsh put it. Wouldn't it be more realistic if Israel would give up its genocide of the Palestinian People?
