Table of contents

After the massacre, Rabin considered dismantling a nearby settlement, Tel Rumeida. But settler leaders warned him that such an action could provoke an armed reaction, and a former chief Ashkenazi rabbi commanded Israeli Army soldiers to disobey an evacuation order. Rabin backed down. The Shin Bet kept a file on Amir that contained no more than a few sentences.

Visiting the Dead Sea, Israel

In the months leading up to the assassination, Raviv heard Amir vow to kill Rabin several times, but apparently did not take him seriously. The rabbis based their justification on the concept of din rodef , a Hebrew term that describes a person who is stalking a defenseless man.

Under certain interpretations of the Talmud, it is obligatory to kill a rodef in order to save the intended victim. Amir later told his interrogators that he had consulted several rabbis in search of an official sanction but could never find one. His brother, Hagai, insisted that he had. As Ephron points out, it apparently never occurred to Amir that he himself was a rodef. As the Oslo Accords unfolded, and the terror attacks continued, Israeli public opinion began to shift from hope to fear.

Rabin and Arafat now saw themselves as partners in a perilous endeavor. Rabin believed that if Arafat did not prevail Hamas would.

Tel Aviv Beaches

In Israel, the extreme wing of the anti-Oslo coalition capitalized on the rising insecurity to excoriate Rabin; some protesters began comparing him to Hitler. The crowd, at Kings of Israel Square, in Tel Aviv, was enormous—about a hundred thousand people—dwarfing anything the anti-Oslo camp had put together. The main fear among the security services was a Palestinian suicide bomber; Rabin himself could not imagine that he would be killed by a Jew.

Neither, apparently, could his bodyguards; when the moment came, Amir pushed through the crowd and shot Rabin twice in the back. Arafat, hearing of the assassination, wept. Peres waited three months to call an election, figuring that he would first conclude a peace treaty with Syria. But a treaty never materialized, and Hamas kept attacking, while the Likud leader, Netanyahu, vowed to make Israelis safe. Under American pressure, Netanyahu paid lip service to Oslo during his first, three-year administration. But the peace process never really recovered.

In four hundred-plus pages, there is almost no mention of the changes that have transformed the Israeli polity in the past six decades, and surprisingly little discussion of the steady growth in the settlement population, which now exceeds half a million. The United Nations and most foreign governments consider them illegal, but for him they are a political difficulty to be finessed. There is no talk of justice. Ross describes a situation, in , when Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, refused to negotiate with Netanyahu unless he agreed to extend a moratorium on settlement construction, and the Obama Administration tried and failed to broker a compromise.

Call for unity government after Israel election ends in dead heat

Ross is as impatient with Palestinian efforts to gain a more sympathetic hearing at the United Nations and elsewhere as he is sensitive to the political needs of Israeli Prime Ministers. Yet he says almost nothing about the political realities that have shaped the situation, or how those realities might be changed. He evinces almost no sympathy for similar pressures on Abbas and others at the Palestinian Authority. Only near the end of the book does he bring himself to criticize Israel. This may be true, but where does this leave American policy? And where does it leave Israel?

Shot in the Heart

Dan Ephron plainly thinks that it would have; he says that Rabin had made the fundamental decision to give up most of the occupied territories, even if he never explicitly said so. That meant, almost certainly, the creation of a Palestinian state, or something resembling one. Ephron is probably right about Rabin making a deal, but he may be overstating the rest.

May 06, Matthew rated it it was amazing. A timely, necessary, and incredibly intelligent book! Salaita has taken on the task of unflinchingly critiquing one of the greatest hypocrisies in contemporary liberal discourse. A must read for anyone interested in social justice and ethical progressive intellectualism. Feb 27, Sia Afghani rated it did not like it. Huge Waste of Money!!! Very Inaccurate depiction of Israel and the Palestinian conflict. Very Bias! Dec 30, Foxglove rated it did not like it.

The heart of darkness is prominent in Zionist cinema, by which I mean filmmaking consciously trained on the historical or ideological dimensions of Zionism or Israel.

All three rely on anonymous Palestinians to frame their central moral questions. All three are didactic, in that they desire a type of soulful restoration that they conceptualize as an ethnic birthright. This book helps explain the threat he poses to the academy, and the nature of the overtly coercive influence that Zionist institutions have had on the academy—obviously including the University of Illinois—long before he was scheduled to arrive here. They did not kill it through violence, however. They killed it by inventing it. It is to be celebrated.

By insisting that nation-states have souls, we prevent ourselves from tending to the humans who subsist within the institutions. The nation-state does not procure a human soul. The nation-state circumscribes the human soul. Other posts by David Green. Interesting, but difficult work. Some typos and mistakes as I read them. If so, what are those rules, and how do they relate to Zionism-in-practice, pro-Israelism-today? No, zionism did not corrupt multiculturalism, MC is a weapon of Zionism: it breaks up national, religious class identities and replaces those unities with ghettoized skin color and sexual role identities, easily manipulated into ineffective divisive splintered body politics.

Balkanization, supremacism, choseness for all, and none, at the same time. The ideology of transnational corporations — all reduced to Benetton skin color, sexual expression, and consumerism fetishes. The version I know seems to be a politically correct term for encouraging self-imposed apartheid.

All citizens should have full access to all the opportunities available to, at least, members of the majority culture in the country. Minority children can end up having the opportunities limited by the cultural limitations imposed on them by the minority culture. Salaita seems to have attended the same School of Complicated Utterance as some other cultural theorists have.

It is true that the main motivation for demanding civil rights for Xs could well be not belief in universal rights but hatred and detestation of some non-X group and a desire to do that group down. Complicated Utterance, though regrettable, is necessary these days.

Israel's Dead Soul

Without it, no-one will think he is a serious academic. I was lucky to have the time to be able to do it. And thank you for the article. And the Salaita case, possibly to the demise of a good man, is bringing it to the fore. After seeing him speak 4 days in a row, and watching him thoughtfully answer a wide array of questions from the audiences, and from speaking to him a few times briefly, my impression is that Mr. Salaita is a very knowledgable, thoughtful and thorough person. All qualities which would make him an excellent instructor.

Hey Gracie. The entire statement from Bassem Tamimi, who came from the West Bank, was not included. For those who are not familiar with ADL [Anti-Defamation League], it is a group established one hundred years ago to combat bigotry directed against Jews. It is generally considered to be a major component in the Israel Lobby. It has also been criticized because its Director is the highest paid head of any Jewish organization in the country and its finances are alleged to be non-transparent.

The issue of online hate is important to all web users as efforts to define and then curb it will affect everyone who works on the internet.

Given the participants and the combatting anti-Semitism theme of the gathering, there should be no doubt that the meeting in California was only concerned with criticism of Jews and Israel and quite likely will have no interest whatsoever in controlling the much more widespread disparagement of Muslims. Do you really believe that? Perhaps in academia such tortured complexity of language is thought to indicate brilliance of insight, but not to me. It has been my experience that when dealing with complicated issues simplicity of language is essential to the understanding of deeper truths.

Those who obfuscate through complexity usually have little to say. Your quotations suggest an academic trying to impress other academics. Perhaps he is capable of writing decent prose if he truly wants to communicate to a more general audience, but such is not the case here. Our society is becoming more authoritarian as we progress towards a neofeudal dystopia. Those in the academy who buck the system can expect to pay a price, particularly when they visibly rebel. The UIUC administration is sending a message to their academic staff to get in line and stay in line or else.
