Lobbying for Zionism on Both Sides of the Atlantic

by Ilan Pappe

In 1896, a Jewish state was a pipe dream. Today the overwhelming majority of Jews identify as Zionists. How did this happen?

Ilan Pappe unveils how over a century of aggressive lobbying changed the map of the Middle East. Pro-Israel lobbies convinced British and American policymakers to condone Israel’s flagrant breaches of international law, grant Israel unprecedented military aid and deny Palestinians rights. Anyone who questioned unconditional support for Israel, even in the mildest terms, became the target of relentless smear campaigns. 
Lobbying for Zionism on Both Sides of the Atlantic shows us how an unassailable consensus was built – and how it might be dismantled.iddle East.


'Ilan Pappe is a magnificent historian and storyteller. He narrates a chilling yet illuminating saga of the systematic denial of Palestinian history and humanity. Lobbying for Zionism on Both Sides of the Atlantic is a haunting and powerfully instructive tale of deliberate investment in injustice and obfuscation. Essential reading.' 
Professor Ussama Makdisi

'For decades, vociferous lobbying has kept Britain and America’s political classes committed to supporting Israel, according to this piercing study... Pappé’s fine-grained narrative weaves together many probing lines of inquiry... This offers a vital international perspective on the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine.'
