Tom Segev, not reliable, whis ardent anti-Israelism twists his so called "facts"

in response to reader comment: About those 900,000 Jews that were forcibly expelled from Arab lands.

When Netanyahu said in 2015, wrongly that Hitler/Nazis didn't plan Jews extermination before Palestine's ex-mufti al-Husseini Hitler 1941 meeting, there was a barrage by leftists going overboard.

Of course Hitler, Eichmann didn't need advice from Mufti. Of course, Nazis planned out extermination before and without the Mufti. Nevertheless, the Islamic Arab fascist leader tried to help, true too. Not to mention his bloody hands in Bialystok children in 1943 and leading Muslim SS divisions in Europe and the 1941 Farhud massacre as well as Operation Atlas with the danger of poisoning hundreds of thousands towards end of WW2.

One of those overboarders reactionists post Netanyahu's 2015 remark is/was Tom Segev (a new historian "star"), who in his zeal to belittle Mufti's role went so far as adopting (holocaust denier) Issa Nakhleh's obsessive exaggeration of one single Zionist Mr. Stern who tried to make an agreement. But all throughout mentioning him in his article, Segev did not care to explain the 'saving Jews, via migration into Palestine' goal. So Sad.

Tom Segev is one of Israel's more distasteful post-Zionists, which is saying a lot, considering their generally unappetizing nature. His newest book, 1967: Israel, the War, and the Year That Transformed the Middle East, is as one-sided and tendentious a work as one would expect from Segev, a columnist for Haaretz whose stock-in-trade is books blaming Israel and Zionism for every conceivable ill in the Middle East.

Will Israel Atone? - Israel National News
The Sulzbergers are the family that runs the New York Times. When covering Middle East events, they do so with such bias that one might think the victims of terror deserved their fate or that Israel carried out a military offensive without provocation. Meanwhile, Tom Segev is an Israeli historian who travels around the world defending Hamas and other Arab terrorists by comparing these murderers to Menachem Begin and Yitzchak Shamir, thus feeding into global anti-Semitism.
