Adi Schwartz is the last speaker confirmed in the program.

Along with former Knesset member Einat Wilf, Schwartz is the author of The War of Return. The book became a bestseller in Israel, and will be translated into English this spring. The War for Return is also published in Norwegian translation, with Infinitum News as publisher.

In 1948, local Arabs and Arab states tried to stifle the Jewish state that had just been born. As a result of the war, 700,000 Palestinians became refugees. More than 70 years later, the Palestinians are demanding that millions of their descendants have the right to move into Israel.

In The War of Return , the authors explain how the idea of ​​”the right to return” arose and how the UN, through UNRWA, created a permanent refugee problem instead of solving it. The book shows that the Palestinians’ demands have no legal basis. If the United States, the United Nations and the European Union make this clear to the Palestinians, it will promote peace and benefit both parties.

Schwartz is a researcher, educator and author focusing on the Arab-Israeli conflict, Israeli history and current politics. He is an expert on the Palestinian refugee problem and the history of Jews from Arab countries. He is currently pursuing his doctorate in political science at Bar-Ilan University. He holds a bachelor’s degree in European history from Tel Aviv University and a master’s degree in political science from Bar-Ilan.

Schwartz’s books are published in both English and Hebrew. He has previously worked as a writer and editor for the left-wing newspaper Ha’aretz. His articles have been published in several Israeli and international newspapers, magazines and journals.

What about the book The War of Return?

“Schwartz and Wilf, both from the left, have written a mandatory book on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the cause of it was not resolved immediately. A good and important book.” Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire .

“Anyone who is seriously interested in the ongoing conflict between Arabs and Zionists must understand what Schwartz and Wilf explain.” Benny Morris, historian and author .

The book will be published by Infinitum News in May 2020. If you would like to make a pre-order, send an e-mail to: post@miff.no.
