The Pales­tin­ian Right to Israel is a use­ful book for any­one who wants to learn how to answer the Pales­tini­ans in pub­lic debates and forums and refute the Pales­tin­ian claim to Israel.

Alex Grob­man writes an acces­si­ble his­to­ry of the con­flict. Then he takes the argu­ments of the Pales­tini­ans and explains point by point how and why they are fac­tu­al­ly incor­rect, mis­tak­en, or tak­en out of con­text.

Through Grobman’s analy­sis the read­er sees that the Pales­tin­ian argu­ment is less a legit­imiza­tion of their rea­son for their own state but rather a de-legit­imiza­tion of the State of Israel.

The two most use­ful chap­ters in this book are An Unin­ter­rupt­ed Jew­ish Pres­ence” and The Impasse Will Con­tin­ue.” Grob­man does not see a sim­ple res­o­lu­tion to the Palestinian/​Israeli con­flict. But he is not about to give up the fight.
