    The so-called "Palestinians" say they are an ancient people, however, it's impossible to locate any legitimate books of history on these alleged ancient Palestinian people written by reputable historians. Amazon.com has not one, while there are thousands of books on the history of the Jews and Christians and Israel dating back 4000 years.

    If anyone can recommend history books [not political] on the so-called Palestinians, written by reputable historians [not just Arab writers like Edward Said] it would be much appreciated. Otherwise, it might call into question whether they really have any history which would be a shock.

    The author Jonathan Dimblebey is a broadcaster not an historian and Don McCullin is a photographer not an historian.

    I specifically am seeking books on the history of the Palestinians written by reputable historians.

    Is this too difficult for you to grasp? Surely, you have ample time during your 18 hour siesta

    Kimmerling was a sociologist, not an historian and the book, which I read, offers no history It is a political book.

    I'm seeking books on the history of the so-called Palestinians written by professional, reputable historians.

    You're not doing so well. Keep trying during the 18 hour siesta.

    Why is it so difficult to find history books on these alleged ancient Palestinian people?

    Not a book on the history of the so-called Palestinians. It is a political book about recent history, not ancient history, which I said is not acceptable.

    Plus, Pappe is not considered a reliable figure.
