About the Author

Thomas Suárez is a London-based historical researcher as well as a professional Juilliard-trained violinist and composer. A former West Bank resident, he devoted several years to researching poorly-tapped and newly-declassified historical archives to compile this story. His previous books include three landmark works on the history of cartography, and Writings on the Wall: Palestinian Oral Histories.


"This is archival history that has been intentionally forced down the memory hole..."--Jonathan Cook, journalist
"[B]elongs in the top 5 most invaluable books on the history of modern Palestine ... [it] is Palestine's Yad Vashem."--Dr. Vacy Vlazna, Countercurrents
"[A] book that really does get to the heart of the Zionist soul--a very dark place indeed."--Mike Parker, Tribune Magazine
"Should be added to the essential sources for researchers on this issue, as well as required reading for university courses on the Palestine/Israel Conflict."--Elaine Hagopian, Arab Studies Quarterly
"It proves beyond doubt that Israel is not the perpetual victim of Arab violence that it claims to be, but has been the aggressor throughout the history of the conflict."--Dr. David Gerald Fincham, Mondoweiss
"A tour de force ... Suárez' diligent archival research that looks boldly at the impact of Zionism on Palestine and its people in the first part of the 20th century ... is the first comprehensive and structured analysis of the violence and terror employed by the Zionist movement, and later the state of Israel, against the people of Palestine. Much of the suffering we witness today can be explained by, and connected to, this formative period ...."--Ilan Pappé, Israeli historian and author
"Israel's depopulation of 560 towns and villages could not have been accomplished without a campaign of massacres, well planned by date, region, unity of purpose, and method. Nor is Israel's use of terror in its foundation, doctrine, and ongoing daily practice strictly military: Suárez documents this terror in its myriad dimensions. No detractor can dispute its findings. Of the rare books that focus on Israel's policy of terror, Palestine Hijacked is singularly powerful. This is an eye-opener, a must-read to clear the fog of deliberate deception used to shield Israel's crimes against Palestine."--Salman Abu Sitta, Founder and President of Palestine Land Society and author of Mapping My Return: A Palestinian Memoir
"Using compelling and detailed historical documentation Suarez ... excels in recounting many moments of Zionist terror throughout history that might not be as well known to the general reader ... Palestine Hijacked is here to remind us that Zionist terror was there from before the establishment of the state, that it continued, and that it is still ongoing, until we stop it."--Jonathan Ofir, Mondoweiss
