Does anybody have direct access to this book: ??
Michael Curtis, Joseph Neyer, Chaim Waxman, Allen Pollack eds.,
The Palestinians: People, History, Politics
Transaction Books New Brunswick, N.J., 1975,
There is an article on page 29 by a Moshe Aumann on "Land Ownership in
Palestine 1880 - 1948", which is quoted by some pro-Zionists, claiming
that 70% of the Israeli territory at the time of the founding of Israel
was "publicly owned" (former public lands of the Osman Empire which went
over to the British colonial administration, and thus to the State of
Israel), while 8.6% supposedly was in Jewish hands, 3.3% owned by
Israeli Arabs, and 16.% of the land owned by Arabs who had fled,
emigrated or have been driven out.
I think that some important falsification is behind this, but can't
check that without having a look at that article and book.
Can anybody help me?
