The Facts about the Palestine Problem was a series of pamphlets produced from 1968 until, at least, 1970. They were published by The Arab Women’s Information Committee based in Beirut, Lebanon.
Financial constraints effected regularity of the, planned, monthly bulletin – a problem that the Palestinian cause has always had to face, even when ‘supported’ by some of the most wealthy nations on the planet.
The stated aim of the editors was to produce a factual background to the situation in Palestine following the disastrous war of June 1967 (known as the Harb – The Setback – in Arabic) which saw the annexation of huge tracks of Palestine by the Israeli Zionists.
At the time of the 1967 ‘Six Day War’ pro-Zionist propaganda was riding high in the capitalist ‘west’ with the idea being promoted that Israel was the innocent victim of an anti-Semitic plot of genocide. These bulletins were part of the propaganda fight back to put the case of the Palestinian people.
Events in the now almost 50 years since that war the world has witnessed countless examples of the attempted genocide (now re-branded as ‘ethnic cleansing’) of the Palestinian population by the increasingly Fascistic Zionist State of Israel.
Notwithstanding the time that has passed since The Facts about the Palestine Problem were first published they still contain many facts and details that many people don’t know about, realise or understand. It is hoped they may be useful in reminding people of what is happening in that part of the world by providing an historical background.
