    so you will understand what it actually says.Here's a link to an English translation http://vispo.com/PRIME/leohn1.pdf. It is full of language like "unholy marriage between Britain and the Zionist movement" Zionist colonialist movement", "Muslims who originally owned the holy land" and remarks about the illegality of British actions (for example referring to the British 'crime' of 'granting a land she did not possess (Palestine) to a group who did not own it (the Zionists) at the expense of those who possess and deserve it (the Palestinian Arab people) and claiming that Britian bears primary responsibility for the Palestinian defeat in 1948. I see no tools provided as to whether this type of language is factual, objective, true and appropriate appropriate in a history book. For example : was Britian's action really a crime or was it legal under international law at the time? (If it was then legal is it correct to refer to it as a crime?) Was Britian primarily responsible for the Palestinian defeat in 1948 or did they arrest both Jews with illegal weapons caches and Palestinians with illegal weapons caches? Might Palestinian rejection of the parition plan have had something to do the subsequent Palestian defeat? Did the Brits 'permit' the Jews to have their own brigade during WWI and not permit the Palestinians to have one or were the Arabs simply allied with the Turks? Did Muslims 'originally own the holy land' or did Islam come into being several millenia after a Jewish state was first established in the holy land? Can a movement whose members have been genetically proven to originate in exactly this area correctly be termed colonialst in the usual sense of the word? Did Palestinians actually posses the land or were the sovereigns prior to the Brits (and bear in mind that the right of conquest was legal at the time) actually the Ottomans?And so on... It's one thing to dispute the facts and another thing entirely to just make them up.
