The thesis of The Dark Side of Zionism, arising from new histories neglected by the media, is that both the early Zionists and the Israelis sought their security through military domination of the indigenous Arab population of Palestine. This strategy required avoiding negotiations with the Palestinians as well as demonstrating Israeli military might through wars initiated against Arab states opposed to an Israeli takeover of Palestine.
