The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World - Paperback

2001, ISBN: 0140288708

[SR: 267290], Paperback, [EAN: 9780140288704], Penguin, Penguin, Book, [PU: Penguin], 2001-02-12, Penguin, Paperback. Pub Date: February. 2001 Pages: 704 Publisher: Israel's CONFLICT (conflict algorithms). Penguin with the Palestinians. And with the Arab world the at large. Casts. a Long shadow over HER history. When Zionist Leaders Formulated the 'Iron Wall' Strategy in the 1920s - dealing with the Arabs from a position of unassailable strength - they intended that when sufficiently strong Israel would be able to make peace with her Arab neighbours. This has been an elusive hope. and Shlaim explores with an uncompromising lens the reasons for Israel's long reliance on military power in the absence of a settlement. His analysis will ing scant comfort to partisans on both sides. but it will be required reading for anyone interested in this fascinating and troubled region of the world.Contents: The emergence of Israel 1947-1949 ; consolidation 1949-1953; attempts at accommodation 1..., In 1897, under order of First Zionist Congress president Theodor Herzl, two Austrian rabbis travelled to Palestine to explore the possibility of locating a Jewish state there. "The bride is beautiful", the rabbis cabled Herzl, "but she is married to another man". That "other man" was the Palestinian Arab nation, long established in the region as a political entity. Undeterred, Herzl pressed on with his programme of emigration, ignoring Palestine's existing occupants and creating in the process what came to be known as the "Arab question".In this far-ranging history, Avi Shlaim analyses that question in remarkable detail, tracing the shifting policies of Israel toward the Palestinians and the Arab world at large. Herzl, he writes, followed a policy that consciously sought to enlist the great powers--principally Britain and later the United States--while dismissing indigenous claims to sovereignty; after all, Herzl argued, "the Arab problem paled in significance compared with the Jewish problem because the Arabs had vast spaces outside Palestine, whereas for the Jews, who were being persecuted in Europe, Palestine constituted the only possible haven". This policy later changed to a stance of confrontation against the admittedly hostile surrounding Arab powers, especially Syria, Jordan and Egypt; this militant stance was a source of controversy in the international community, and it also divided Israelis into hawk and dove factions. The intransigence of those hawks, Shlaim shows, served to alienate Israel and made it possible for the Palestine Liberation Organisation and other Arab nationalist groups to enlist the support of the great powers that Herzl had long before courted. Both sides, in turn, had eventually to face the "historic compromise" that led to the present peace in the Middle East--a peace that, the author suggests, may not endure. --Gregory McNamee, 271300, Israel, 271287, Middle East, 271248, Asia, 771708, Countries & Regions, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271303, Palestine, 271287, Middle East, 271248, Asia, 771708, Countries & Regions, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275882, International Relations, 275883, Diplomacy, 496624, Geopolitics, 275870, Government & Politics, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
