About the book

On July 22nd 1946, the Irgun blew up the King David Hotel, the headquarter of the British authorities in Palestine, killing 91 and injuring 46. On October 31st2023, the “Israeli Defence Forces”, a direct product of the Irgun, bombed the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing at least 50 and injuring many more. In the British media, the former was described as a terrorist attack, whereas the latter was not. Why is this the case?

In this timely polemic, public speaker and academic Mohammad Hijab, translator and journalist Jody Mcyntyre analyse and compare the responses of the British, Arab, and Jewish medias to these two atrocities. As entrenched western support for the Zionist project is pushed to its limits, this text highlights and questions an apparent double standard in reposting acts of terror in Palestine.
