Inhaltsangabe: Ariel Sharon was one of the most experienced, shrewd and frightening leaders of the new millennium. Despite being found both directly and indirectly responsible for acts considered war crimes under international law, he became Prime Minister of Israel, a political victory he won by provoking the Palestinians into a new uprising, the second intifada. From the beginning of his career Sharon was regarded as the most brutal, deceitful and unrestrained of all the Israeli generals and politicians. A man of monstrous vision, his attempts to destroy the Palestinian people have included the proposal to make Jordan the Palestinian state and the now infamous invasion of Lebanon in 1982, which resulted in the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
Baruch Kimmerling?s new book describes Sharon?s quest to reshape the whole geopolitical landscape of the Middle East. He describes how Sharon is committed to politicide, the destruction of the Palestinian political identity, and how won the support of powerful elements within Israeli society and the American administration in order to achieve this. Kimmerling exposes the brutality of Sharon and his junta?s ?solutions?, and constructs a devastating indictment of a man whose cruelty and ruthlessness have resulted in widespread and indiscriminate slaughter.
Umschlagtext: "Baruch Kimmerling, a Jew with a biblical conscience, gives us in ‘Politicide’ not only a devastating critique of Ariel Sharon but an acutely perceived history of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. He writes with care and with passion. It is a book both scholarly and heartfelt and I hope it will be widely read." – Howard Zinn
