Phantom Nation is available as one complete Kindle eBook or in three separate paperback volumes. They can be purchased separately or together. (See below.) For either supporters of Israel or the putatively Paleolithic Palestinians, Phantom Nation is a must-read. Shai ben-Tekoa skewers the myth of a Palestinian nation with rights to land the League of Nations specifically recognized as Jewish. The author, hired for a research project by the Office of Israels Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir discovered the first mention ever in a United Nations resolution of Palestinians in the year 1970, three years after Israel conquered Judea and Samaria, a.k.a. the West Bank. The author shows how this very no-name of a name, West Bank, had to be invented for hills the Arabs never had a name for; hence the sterile, topographical description lacking all historical associations which exposes the fraud that is the Palestinian counter-claim to land the League said was Jewish. Before 1959, when Gamal Nasser of Egypt conjured up the idea of a phantom Palestinian entity, the record of Holy Land history is perfectly empty of any mention of them. After Ben-Tekoa's government assignment ended, he went in search of the full story surrounding the birth of this allegedly archaic society, and the story he tells covers the entire sweep of Zionist and Israeli history, its wars and waves of Arab and Muslim massacres (terrorism) and the birth of this notional nation a Biblical generation of forty years after the League of Nations Mandate. He likens the rise of Palestinian Nationalism to Holocaust Denial as a twin perversion of history, our generations successor ideology to medieval Christianity and Nazism as forms of homicidal anti-Semitism. It is our times way of justifying the mass murder of Jews. Phantom Nation is also a crackling, riveting, great read.
