Critics in the USA who questioned Peters's scholarship were not heard. But this changed when in 1985 the book was published in the UK. The reviews were devastating. Albert Hourani, the distinguished scholar of Oxford University, among others, denounced it as "ludicrous and worthless". Remarkably and honorably in Israel the book was likewise demolished, first and foremost by noted Israeli scholar Yehoshua Porath, who checked Peters's sources and concluded that it was a gigantic fraud, discrediting the 'Zionist cause'. The Labor Party daily Davar compared "From Time Immemorial" to Israel's more ignoble past propaganda exercises; the liberal weekly Koteret Rashit published a detailed account of the cover-up by the US media. The chair of the philosophy department at the Hebrew University, Avishai Margalit, derided Peters's 'web of deceit'.
