I think "mythological shroud" would work very well here.
When approaching the Israeli-Palestinian problem, objectivity is a pre-requisite to cutting through the mythological shroud that has developed within the psyche of both sides. John Gee is an academic at the Council for Advancement of Arab-British Understanding who studied Middle East History at the University of London. His book looks plainly at the historical record of the conflict without the clutter of exaggerated claims or romantic ideals of a Jewish nation fighting the odds. His central argument involves de-mythologizing the workings of Zionism and facing how socially ill-equipped the Palestinians were in meeting this challenge so that a just solution could be found to the conflict. This honest look at history cannot be found in the Palestinian Charter or Zionism’s founding documents, which are cited throughout the book.
