Revealed: How pro-Israel lobbying groups influence the Middle East policies of Britain, the US and others

In 2018, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi appeared at the national conference of the Israeli America Council. She told the crowd, ‘If this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to…Israel.’ That year, pro-Israel groups and individuals spent over $22 million on lobbying and political campaign contributions in the United States. Their aim? To influence policy towards the Middle East, and Palestine in particular. But it’s not just in the US that this is happening. Though rarely discussed, similar moves are being made in the UK and elsewhere too.

Renowned historian Ilan Pappe exposes the methods used to affect political decisions, media coverage, scholarly work and public opinion on Israel and Palestine. In the UK, such efforts have been linked to the debate around anti-Semitism in the Labour Party with respect to Britain’s role in, and responsibility for, the Palestine question. Setting present-day events in their historical context, Pappe shows how Israel has come to stifle debate on Palestine – with devastating consequences.

Ilan Pappe is an Israeli historian and socialist activist. He is a professor of history at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, director of the university's European Centre for Palestine Studies, and co-director of the Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies. He is also the author of the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (Oneworld), A History of Modern Palestine (Cambridge), The Modern Middle East (Routledge), The Israel/Palestine Question (Routledge), The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel (Yale), The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge (Verso) and with Noam Chomsky, Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians (Penguin). He writes for, among others, the Guardian and the London Review of Books.
