Palestine Hijacked is the first comprehensive analysis of the terrorism used by the Zionist movement in post-WWI era to force the establishment of the Israeli state, a history fully relevant to Israel’s ongoing expansion and repression today. In an impressive display of historical excavation, Suárez uses newly-declassified British archives to reveal the impact of Zionism on Palestine and its people in the first part of the 20th century.

“A tour de force, based on diligent archival research that looks boldly at the impact of Zionism on Palestine and its people in the first part of the 20th century … Much of the suffering we witness today can be explained by, and connected to, this formative period covered thoroughly in this book.”
—Ilan Pappé, Israeli historian and author

“Of the rare books that focus on Israel’s policy of terror, Palestine Hijacked is singularly powerful. This is an eye-opener, a must-read to clear the fog of deliberate deception used to shield Israel’s crimes against Palestine.”
— Salman Abu Sitta, author of Mapping my Return: A Palestinian Memoir
