Phantom Nation


or listen LIVE:    Mondays  at 10am EST /5pm Israel

Sha’i ben-Tekoa has authored a door-stopper of a book, and intensive research on the ‘Phantom Nation’ – a must-read book.  If you support the putatively Paleolithic “Palestinians,” you had better read this book. Sha’i ben-Tekoa skewers the myth of a “Palestinian” nation with rights to land the League of Nations specifically recognized as Jewish.

The author, hired for a research project by the Office of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir discovered the first mention ever in a United Nations resolution of “Palestinians” in the year 1970, three years after Israel liberated Judea and Samaria, a.k.a. the “West Bank.” The author also shows how this very no-name of a name, “West Bank,” had to be invented for hills the Arabs never had a name for. Hence, the sterile, topographical description lacking all historical associations, which exposes the fraud that is the “Palestinian” counter-claim to land the League said was Jewish. Before 1959, when Gamal Nasser of Egypt conjured up the idea of a phantom “Palestinian” nation, the record of Holy Land history is perfectly empty of any mention of them. 

Join Sha’i each Monday as he dissects the news and teaches the the real history of the region.

PHANTOM NATION: Inventing the “Palestinians” as the Obstacle to Peace

by Sha’i ben-Tekoa

*Ruth King, Board of Directors, Americans for a Safe Israel, in the Outpost, April, 2015.

 “…meticulously researched…These volumes are packed with more information that any single book on the history of Israel. Ben-Tekoa chronicles it all–from the early pre-state Zionists, to the rebirth of the Jewish state, through the endless wars and terrorism, to the present Holocaust denial and international anti-Semitism…Ben-Tekoa understands the role that the Koran and Islam have played in the Muslim/Arab war against Israel. Israel stands in the way of Muslim dreams of a Caliphate with Sharia law throughout the Middle East.

In this respect, he goes beyond some of the best books on the conflict, including the late Irish politician Conor Cruise O’Brien’s The Siege and Samuel Katz’s Battleground.

The blood curdling anti-Jewish fulminations of Iran are a call for a final jihad against Israel. Bat Ye’or in her many books and articles detailed the Islamic origins of anti-Israel hatred as did the late Saul Friedman in his splendid Land of Dust.

I highly recommend Ben-Tekoa’s work. Phantom Nation belongs in homes, libraries, and should be studied by all Israel support organizations.”

“…an amazing document…”

A Tremendous Piece of Research

From Y K on, March 19, 2015

Shai, I bought your 3 volumes of PN. I have read just the first 10 pages and I’m literally shaking. This looks to bea tremendous piece of literature, rich in facts and powerfully written. It tears apart lies that have hardened into concrete with a jackhammer. It’s ferocious.


This Book is Phenomenal!

Shai brings forth history and facts layer by layer exposing the myth of the “indigenous Palestinians in Palestine.” I find it very effective especially when speaking to anti-Israel activists.”

Excellent !!!!

Dealing with the accusation that my country has no right to exist on campuses, I find Shai’s work to be the best informative work on history of the conflict. In reading just a few chapters I gained so much knowledge of the conflict. The best work out there by far!!

Different angle on things

By Michael Hetherington “J. H.” on June 28, 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

“A fantastic and informative publication on the nature of the state called Palestine, something not many if any other publications will dare to talk or write about, it is an insight to the serious problem that the Middle East problem poses to the World and the very one sided view presented by mainstream media/press…I was more than satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone genuinely trying to get a better and more balanced understanding of this intractable problem.”

A Mind Opening Work

“A mind opening work. This book provides so many insights with so many facts that it’s actually exhausting to read but in a very good way. This author combines the mind of a refined intellectual with the guts of a boxer. This is a special book. If you want to make sense of the State of Israel and its challenges, read this book. It’s terrific.”

“Shai Ben Tekoa has written a fine historical review with his book on the Palestinian Myth.
…[He is] an excellent historian and researcher…For those who wish to become experts, Sha’i ben Tekoa provides an essential work for any student of the so-called Israel-“Palestinian” conflict.”

“There is so much mendacity propagated by the left and Dhimmi politicians about Palestine…this work will be discredited as right wing by the “progressive” elite and Shai Ben-Tekoa will be subjected to the usual leftist sneer, smear and slander campaign. He should wear it as a badge of honour.”

“This essay is truly a mine of information…Shai Ben-Tekoa has done his research…”


Best recounting of the phantom nation that plagues Bnei Israel

Best recounting of the phantom nation that plagues Bnei Israel

Best recounting of the phantom nation that plagues Bnai Israel

By David T on May 9, 2014

“This is the best recounting of events that created the false identity of Israel’s enemies.  The word ‘Palestinian” is anti-Semitism and this author will leave no doubt in your mind as to the struggle between good and evil; civilization and barbarism. A must read. The West would be well warned to learn the lessons here.”


The Palestinian hoax and it’s impact on the Middle East

By Carla Siegel on April 16, 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

“The great strength of this book is its remarkable detail of facts that will allow for a better understanding of what the conflict between Israel and the Arabs is all about. The book should be read by all, but most importantly by Israelis and Western leaders and legislators who can help change the course of history for the better by being able to make the proper decisions based on the knowledge attained from having read this book.”



By William B “Texas” on April 8, 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

“This is an extraordinary book. If you have any real interest in seeking out the “root cause” of the Arab/Israeli conflict, Sha’i ben-Tekoa will inform you in masterful detail. Indeed, the bibliography and footnotes alone are worth adding this book to your library; but, most of all it reveals “…the most shocking experiences…” surrounding the increasingly successful propaganda war waged against the Jews by the Muslim horde and the worldwide political left. How is it that these unholy bedfellows have managed to deceive and distort the rightful claim of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland? How is it that the truth of that claim can be slowly drown in the cesspool of hate and deception of a sham “peace process”? This book will measure out a most valuable grasp of these issues and perhaps give us all an insight into the even broader question of why such a tiny people would bear the vilification of such a host of enemies.”


Smashing the Myth

By Barbara Rosen on March 20, 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

“Phantom Nation is a fascinating, factual expose of the myth of an ancient Palestinian Nation. Sha’i Ben Tekoa unravels the twisted threads of the story involving the enduring conflict between Muslims and Jews, the restoration of the nation of Israel and the motives behind the enduring conflict. The breadth of his knowledge, both Biblical and historical, shed a bright light on the creation of the Palestinians as a way to redefine a religious conflict dating back to Mohammed.”

Very, very, extremely impressive!

By Product Review on January 18, 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

“Phantom Nation explores the people and events that shaped the history of the growing nation of Israel envied by others…the Arabs’ quest for property that did not belong to them…has the reader stunned and amazed by the lengths taken to rewrite historical facts, efforts to de-legitimize the Jewish nation, and replace it with a new, made up nation called Palestinians.”


A truthful accounting…

By Zach on October 25, 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

A relentless and thorough presentation of historical fact, arranged in chronological order. Many sources are cited…he draws the reader’s attention to the incremental corruption of language used to describe tactics, people and places, culminating in a new and fictitious “Palestinian narrative”….Truth turned upside-down. If you wonder how the conflict began, or why it continues today, then read this book. Many surprises throughout. Highly recommended.


Incredible detail…

Zackary D. Barron on July 30, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I’ll admit this is not the most positive book in that it proposes an ultimate solution to the state of pseudo-war that exists between “Palestinians” (a made up term) and Israelis. But the detail is unparalleled and the author writes in an engaging manner…A bit cynical, but a fount of knowledge on the subject nonetheless.


This is the best book that I have read in a long time

By Lucian on August 6, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

This is the best book that I have read in a long time. Very well researched. The author draws logical, original and clear conclusions. It is not just another rehash of the events. The whole situation starts making sense since the conflict is shown in its historical perspective. No political correctness and no pandering to the official version of history. People with left leaning proclivity might not like it, but such people should read this book the most, to learn to verify and question their ideas.


Tell it like it is!

By Hilary Nissenbaum on August 6, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

An excellent, concise account of verifiable historical fact. The book should be read by most of the current crop of uninformed leftist western media who have a genetic disposition to Jew hatred. Not to mentioned unnaturally high number of self-hating uninformed Jews around the world.
It’s a great read.
