This chapter presents a different perspective of the violence in Palestine. It depicts the disturbances as a warranted uprising against imperialism, detracting from previously anti-Semitic characterizations of the Palestine riots. The chapter points to the Jews—more specifically, Jewish and British imperialists—who have oppressed the Arab masses, thus arguing that what has been called pogroms are, as a matter of fact, revolts. The Zionists are portrayed here as agents of British imperialism. Furthermore, the British government itself is to blame for inciting the conflict via a “divide and rule” tactic. Both the Jews and the British are therefore regarded as capitalists and imperialists taking advantage of Arab soil.
