ABOUT THIS SITE

paldocs.net focuses on sources documents cited in my book, State of Terror, principally those held by the (British) National Archives in Kew. I have selected documents to show the source for specific quotes or events cited in the book, or to expand on them.

This site will periodically be expanded.


To be sure, documents illustrated are not the sole evidence for significant conclusions and positions taken in the book. Those positions are the sum of the history over the entire period at issue. For example, the book concludes that UN Resolution 181, with its implicit creation of the Israeli state, was the capitulation to Zionist terrorism. A British Cabinet document from the summer of 1947 actually states this, reinforcing my conclusion and demonstrating the cynicism involved. But the conclusion itself is based on the cumulative evidence of the preceding decade.
