Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French... What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct.

*********************

The much neglected, and yet crucial, India’s take on the Palestine question has finally been addressed in this volume.
