In his new book, A Century of Palestinian Rejectionism and Jew Hatred, (Encounter Books, 2011), Sol Stern, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and contributing editor to City Journal, provides an eye-opening analysis of the history surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian encounter and offers insight into the motivation underlying the action of both sides. He argues that the Palestinians have consistently been less than truthful about both the origins of the conflict and their true goals.
In our interview, we talked about the history Stern lays out in his book, why President Abbas’ misleading New York Times op-ed was so important, and how the actions of Palestinian leaders have so often been contrary to the interests of the Palestinian people. Read all about it, and more, in Stern’s revelatory new book.
