Israel’s archives, temporarily opened in the 1990s, allowed a group of “new historians” to document genocidal intent that preceded the Holocaust and Israeli statehood. For example, the Zionists compiled extensive data about the Palestinian population to be used in the planned expulsion and assassinations of Palestinians. After World War II, Israel at first opposed the allegation of genocide to any other situation except the German Holocaust.
