>>507807 You are kidding right? You know, not everyone in the world harbors a religious/bias mind toward these conflicts. There have been historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and religious studies scholars who hold 100% secular views. It may seem foreign to you to think so if you haven't spent time as an academic researcher (or haven't been apart of higher education in general), but I assure you, unbiased research/books are available that offer a plethora of historical and sociological methods/analysis on the Israel Palestine issue.
>>507804 This one is alright. Also pic related is good; it's less historical and more hands-on approach but still contains heck of a lot of background on the issue. Read anything by Morris, really. He's a political person but as a historical he's extremely professional and diligent, brings all the details, compares sources, etc. His only shortcoming is that he doesn't read Arabic.
>>507875 Of course, but it varies heavily and from topic to topic. Does that mean we should discredit the secular scholarship of EVERY historian? Of course not. There are plenty of contemporary historians that are detached from these two cultures, which lends them the ability to criticize both sides of the argument in one package. Your pervious post made it sound like everyone has an agenda, or everyone sees this issue as black and white, this is completely untrue and you know.
>>507956 No I'm not Jewish, I'm a half Mexican, half Irish American living in California. The only thing I'm invested in is secular scholarship, which you (who I'm starting suspect have no idea what the fuck I am talking about), suspect can not exist.
If you are this suspicious of academia/academic research and scholarship, I don't think /his/ is the right board for you.
