Answering Benny Morris: Historians should have a commitment to the truth
Is there really no chance for peace with the Palestinians? Is it true that they don’t want to compromise? Two leading economists respond to an interview with Benny Morris.
Historian Benny Morris taught us a great deal about the history of the Israeli-Arab conflict, but above all he’s taught us that the official Israeli version is not always right. When the original documents are made public, after many years, a very different historical picture often emerges. We know this from his studies on the Palestinian refugees and on Israel’s border wars in the 1950s.
