Typical anti-Semite denigrate any Jewish source which does not agree with him as suspect - your real surname wouldn't be Galloway would it?
You quote Sachar - a leading light of the anti-Israel J Street whose leader said the creation of Israel was a mistake. In fact one reviewer of Sachar's book says quote "Although the book is packed with detailed information about all stages of development of Jewish State in Palestine and is undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive sources of information, I gave it only 3 stars because the author is obviously biased in most of his judgments and analysis. I realize that there is no history completely divorced from subjective judgment of the author but this book borders on leftist propaganda literature."- enuff said.
Here are the sources go and read them and educate yourself.
