Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Following the war of 1948 Palestine s Druzes became part of the state of Israel. Overwhelmingly rural, they sought to safeguard their community s age-old ethnic independence by holding on to their traditional ethno-religious particularism. Ethnicity and ethnic issues, however, were ready tools for the Zionists in the pursuit of their policy aims vis-a-vis the state s Arab population. Central among these was the cooptation of part of the Druze elite in an obvious effort to alienate the Druzes from the other Arabs - creating good Arabs and bad Arabs served the Jewish state as a foil for its ongoing policy of dispossession and control. The author painstakingly documents the political, social and economic factors that ensured the success of these Zionist policies, but concludes that the fissured identity of Israel s Druzes today bespeaks a feeling of musiba, tragedy, within the community itself.

Synopsis : Following the war of 1948 Palestine's Druzes became part of the state of Israel. Overwhelmingly rural, they sought to safeguard their community's age-old ethnic independence by holding on to their traditional ethno-religious particularism. Ethnicity and ethnic issues, however, were ready tools for the Zionists in the pursuit of their policy aims vis-a-vis the state's Arab population. Central among these was the cooptation of part of the Druze elite in an obvious effort to alienate the Druzes from the other Arabs - creating "good" Arabs and "bad" Arabs served the Jewish state as a foil for its ongoing policy of dispossession and control. The author painstakingly documents the political, social and economic factors that ensured the "success" of these Zionist policies, but concludes that the fissured identity of Israel's Druzes today bespeaks a feeling of "musiba," tragedy, within the community itself.

Critique: 'Die vorliegende Arbeit ist ein absolutes Muss fur alle Drusenforscher, aber auch eine ampfehlenswerte Lekture fur all diejenigen, die sich fur die innere Dynamik und Wandlungsfahrigkeit von Minderheiten und ihre beziehungen zur sie umgebenden Mehrheit interessieren...' Bernadette Schenk, Die Welt des Islams, 2001.
