This pamphlet presents the long and lively public debate in the 1980s and 1990s, with many contributors, which led to Workers' Liberty re-developing our ideas about Israel, Palestine, and antisemitism. It is a new, expanded, and corrected edition of the 1989 Workers' Liberty Pamphlet, Arabs, Jews and Socialism: The debate on Palestine, Zionism and anti-Semitism.

This October 2019 edition includes some additions to and corrections to the second edition, May 2019. The first edition was in 1989 (date incorrectly given, in second edition, as 1993). Some texts in this collection are slight revisions of earlier versions of those same texts found elsewhere on this website.
