Shlomo Sand Ì 3 summary

Erklärung und heutiger Regierungspropaganda die Juden nie danach gestrebt haben in ihr „angestammtes Land“ zurückzukehren und dass auch heute ihre Mehrheit nicht in Israel lebt oder leben will Es gibt kein „historisches Anrecht“ der Juden auf das Land Israel so Sand Diese Idee sei ein Erbe des unseligen Nationalismus des 19 Jahrhunderts begierig aufgegriffen von den Zio. I sympathize with what appears to be Professor Sands's main goal to counter the simplistic justifications offered by right wing Zionists for the occupation and annexation of the West Bank But Sands goes too far I can appreciate his claim that ancient Jews failed to recognize the modern sanctified term Eretz Israel as a political entity it turns out that Land of Israel in the title are carefully chosen words but he cannot erase the importance of places like Hebron in our history And we all know that religious anti Zionists bitterly resented the appropriation of a Messianic goal by the Zionists and their way of consciously elevating it to an immediate secular goal so Sands adds nothing by his history on that score I argue that the Russian pogromists and the Nazis created facts on the ground that the Jewish people and yes I also fail to be swayed by Sands's claim that there is no Jewish people had to react to In short I don't think we have to argue with Jewish religious fanatics on their own terms in order to criticize the unjust and dangerous political results of fanaticism A Cowboy Summer right wing Zionists for the occupation and annexation of the West Bank But Sands goes too far I can appreciate his claim that ancient Jews failed to Showdown with the Sheriff recognize the modern sanctified term Eretz Israel as a political entity it turns out that Land of Israel in the title are carefully chosen words but he cannot erase the importance of places like Hebron in our history And we all know that The Conqueror's Lady / The Mercenary's Bride / His Enemy's Daughter religious anti Zionists bitterly Cowboy Smith resented the appropriation of a Messianic goal by the Zionists and their way of consciously elevating it to an immediate secular goal so Sands adds nothing by his history on that score I argue that the Russian pogromists and the Nazis created facts on the ground that the Jewish people and yes I also fail to be swayed by Sands's claim that there is no Jewish people had to Cries in the Night react to In short I don't think we have to argue with Jewish Justice at Cardwell Ranch religious fanatics on their own terms in order to criticize the unjust and dangerous political Cowboy Who Came for Christmas results of fanaticism

    As a Muslim there is a great lesson in self reflection to be learnt from this critical analysis for creation of the 'myth' of land of Israel conjured up by Zionists in order to justify forced annexation of Palestine I have to give credit to Jewish culture for relatively accepting alternate views instead of rejecting any criticism like my own Islamic culture This way all the positive and negative aspects of any contentious issue can be very effectively ring fenced within instead of leaving voids for outsiders to take shots at like Islam has to go through repeatabilitySholomo makes a very convincing case against the whole legality of Israel especially when he points out that there was no tradition of pilgrimage in Jews unlike Christianity and Islam He calls this shift towards pilgrimage 'Christian Zionism' But I don't really see his objective for even if Jewish traditions were relatively late in adopting pilgrimage aping Christians Jewish pilgrimage is here to stay For I know that in Islam pilgrimage to Kaaba made prominence after the death of the Prophet for during his life he only made one proper pilgrimage His first attempt to get to Kaaba was thwarted and he had to make the pilgrimage away from Kaaba a tradition never really adopted by popular Islam In this regards I do agree with the author when he suggests that history is directed by a select few writers and scholars of that time who may not be reflecting the view of ordinary masses of that era I guess the author is attempting to convey his alternate fringe point of view so that future generations can objectify I don't seriously believe that public opinion will ever change in Israel due to his work though Because at the moment the Jews have managed to acuire majority in Israel and successfully ousted Arabs from the land of their forefathers World opinion was partly responsible for creation of Israel but mainly Jews after years of being on the run in Europe were finally given a golden opportunity to finally settle down which they accepted with a lot of rigour State propaganda based on selective reading of history occurs in almost every country In the country of my birth Pakistan we have similar trend in education where Pakistan is directly linked with the advent of a distant Islamic culture blatantly ignoring the strong cultural ties with the local Hindu culture which seems far plausible in my opinion I guess this strong need to forge an identity is reuired to cover atrocities against minorities which both Pakistan and Israel are sort of known for Sholomo after a slowish start makes a very powerful case in favour of his primary argument Holy land to Homeland His analysis considers the personal religious inclinations of the primary movers for a Jewish homeland in Britain I think he has very successfully demonstrated the influence of religion on politics in the book as in my opinion religion may not be the primary motive but is very useful for justification and motivational purposes when making convincing arguments Sholomo has demonstrated the urgent need for a Jewish homeland in the wake of the huge number of immigrants in mainland Britain after the Bolshevik revolution The threat of the new immigrant coupled with religious justification that Jews have to installed in the Holy land as per the Bible created huge supporters of Zionism in Britain

    Although the author is an Israeli professor at Tel Aviv University yet his reflections on the issue is worth teaching in the Palestinian and related Arab curriculaFrom a some what boring first chapter about the historical development of the concept of fatherlandhomeland in the 2nd chapter the author provides invaluable insights on the driving force among the Hebrew People of the Bible which was the Torah and not the landThen the author portrays the rejection of the Jews in the world of the concept of living in Palestine as something that doesn't have any particular interest or meaning for the Jews since the destruction of the Temple until today The last chapter is heartbreaking as it tracks the birth of the concept of a national home for the Jews first by the Evangelical Christians who wanted to push forward the coming of the Messiah and then by the Zionist movementA must read for every Palestinian

    A worthy seuel of the invention of the Jewish people The central uestion is was the territory known today as the land of Israel or Palestine was it really during the centuries a focal point of hopes of jewish political independence? Of pilgrimage? And if it wasn't when was it invented as such by whom and for what purposes?

    Professor Shlomo Sand fulfilled his mission with this book writing the sloppiest piece of historiography ever published about Israel and Zionism Instead of sustaining a clear anti Zionist agenda as Nathan Weinstock did decades ago with the classic book Zionism against Israel Mr Sand tries to build his case on the argument that Jewish nationalism is an invention or a mytho historyas he conceptualizes on his work According to the author Zionism has distorted biblical texts and teachings to give Zionism described here as racist colonial and imperialist a proper historical meaning Although the author is able to make good points here and there the result is messy convoluted and is closer to vulgar propaganda than to real academic inuiry As the author tries to show that Jewish identity wasn't a national identity he forgets that nationalism has no true essence it's the desire of a group to live together to acuiesce to a common identity by actually living in the same space or by historical imagination and the willingness to have a common future There is a particularly embarrassing definition of the Zionist left as not really leftist as it didn't participate in the fight against imperialism and capitalism Mr Sand as it seems is the jury judge and executioner of the political compass His self aggrandizing job of destroying national myths is done in a inuisitorial way much to impress the reader but does little in terms of proper scholarship The book could have focused on the strategies and intellectual networks that Zionist scholars created to re read the holy texts as a canonical narrative but insists on using disconnected uotes from the Bible and Israeli politicians and an array of useless personal remarks that further contribute to bog down an already mediocre book Skip all chapters and read the epilogue about the Palestinian village that existed where the Tel Aviv University currently is The rest is pure junk

    The best book I have read this year A stunning work of history and memory combining intellectual rigour with great moral courage 'The Invention of the Land of Israel' meticulously deconstructs the founding mythology of the exclusive claim of the Jewish people to the land in Israel as well as the supposed yearning of the Jewish people to return to their homeland and asks to us to consider whether Israel is the answer to the Diaspora or a part of it Not for a moment endorsing any solution that would damage or threaten Israel or its people Shlomo Sand is asking for a genuinely honest and open debate on the history of the conception and foundation of the State of Israel Can Israel ever hope for peace with its neighbours and its Palestinian and Arab citizens while it continues to deny or ignore the terrible suffering inflicted on those people and their forefathers? Can a binational state emerge including the West Bank and Gaza where all citizens whether Jewish or Arab or Druze or Christian enjoy full eual civil and political rights? Above all this is a call for the people of Israel to save themselves from the ethnocentric narrative that has been woven into the very fabric of Israeli civil political and cultural society a narrative that is a threat to their democracy and even Professor Sand posits their future as a state

    How could a man or a people seize a vast territory and keep out the rest of the human race except by a criminal usurpation since the action would rob the rest of mankind of the shelter and food that nature has given them all in common?A happy homeland of milk and honey promised to the chosen is a fairy tale lie The idea of homeland the bond between soil and blood has become almost an indoctrinated philosophy Treat humans as you will but never uestion ones loyalty for their country death for land the only honorable death When in reality it is unbearably sad to think that soil has worth than a soul The cost and bloodshed in creating these lies inventing nationalistic pride at the cost of killing ethnic cleansing a race of people carries such a deep offense to the earth The earth soil land was never meant to have blood spilled on it especially when it has such abundance for all
