Disciplines History Middle Eastern History. About the Book Based on his reading of top-secret files of the Israeli police and the prime minister's office, Hillel Cohen exposes the full extent of the crucial, and, until now, willfully hidden history of Palestinian collaboration with Israelis—and of the Arab resistance to it.

It is a fascinating tale, but his account of espionage, patronage, bribery, treachery, deception, smuggling, infiltration, intimidation, threats, double dealing — and often murder — does not make for pleasant reading. By heeding its lessons today, the Israeli leadership may be able to inch closer to a realistic and ethical framework for embracing minorities in the Jewish state. More than that, he takes the reader into an intricate world of espionage, bribery, and punishment.
Case after case is summoned to illustrate how collaboration permeated all aspects of Palestinian society. The story that Hillel Cohen tells is a sad one, about a defeated people who had to face their former enemies coming to their villages as the victors and as their sovereigns.

In fact, during the first months of the intercommunal clashes, many Arabs asked for truce from their Jewish neighbors. The Arab tragedy was that despite the fact that the vast majority of them did not want to go to war, they had to suffer the consequences of the very few who dictated their agenda over the rest of their brethren and went to war under the leadership of Haj Amin al Husseini.
About the Book
Finding themselves citizens of a Jewish state after the war ended, both the Arabs who tried to avoid war and those who embraced it had to try to accommodate to their new situation. One way to do so was by cooperating with the Israeli authorities and collaborating with Israel's security services. In [End Page ] describing that process, the book wishes to refute some accepted truths about the Arab Israelis and their relations with the Jewish state: They expressed their will and opinion, advancing their own agenda, even through clashes and conflict with the authorities.
Second, the Israeli attempt to control the Israeli Arab national consciousness and identity failed.
