Sample text

As Daniel McGowan, a professor at Hobart and William Smith College, explained, by presenting Israel as an apartheid state, pro-Palestinian advocates hoped to undermine support for Israel in the West and force its withdrawal from the territories. 36 While rejecting the ‘‘original sin,’’ the Zionist Left complained about the ‘‘sin of tribalism,’’ that is the alleged victory of Jewish nationalism over universalism in Israel. ’’ The Tel Aviv University philosopher Joseph Agassi described Israel ‘‘as an independent ghetto state,’’ and his Hebrew University colleague Avishai Margalit blamed the ‘‘commemoration industry,’’ including the Holocaust Museum (which he described as Israel’s ‘‘shrine of kitsch’’), for fostering Jewish nationalism.

Seizing upon the momentum created by the collapse of the Soviet Union and Iraq’s defeat in the Gulf War, liberal internationalists argued that the conflict-prone region could be transformed into a more economically integrated and peaceful entity. Harold H. Saunders, a member of William Quandt’s Brookings Institution group, felt confident that the end of the Cold War would tear down the ‘‘other wall’’ and usher an Arab-Israeli peace. Scholars who subscribed to the ‘‘democratic peace’’ were hopeful that, following global trends, Arab countries would shed their autocratic past and transform themselves into functioning democracies.

In this view, even if the majority of the Palestinians were ready to coexist peacefully with Israel, there was little indication that the Islamists and the secular rejectionists— let alone their sponsors in Iran and Syria—were willing to defer to the democratic rules of the game. The Jerusalem Post was among the few in the Israeli media to note that Hamas and Islamic Jihad repeatedly claimed that the Islamic holiness of Palestine transcends democratic consideration. Nor were they persuaded that Yasser Arafat would observe the democratic protocol.
