How do secular Jewish-Israeli millennials feel about the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, having come of age in the shadow of the failed Oslo peace process, when political leaders have used ethno-religious rhetoric as a dividing force? This is the first book to analyse blowback to Palestinian and Jewish-Israeli religious nationalism among this group in their own words. It is based on fieldwork, interviews and surveys conducted after the 2014 Gaza War. Offering a close reading of the lived experience and generational memory of participants, it offers a new explanation for why attitudes to Occupation have grown increasingly conservative over the past two decades. It examines the intimate emotional ecology of Occupation, offering a new argument about neo-Romantic conceptions of citizenship among this group. Beyond the case study, it also offers a new theoretical framework and research methods for researchers and students studying emotion, religion, nationalism, secularism and political violence around the world.

The Testimony of Late Seventeenth-Century Library Auction Catalogues
Lawrence Rabone

In this article on book circulation, I survey twelve English library auction catalogues from the period 1676–97, in order to show how interest in the writings of the Amsterdam rabbi Menasseh ben Israel (1604–57) continued after his death. I do this by identifying the circulation of his works in Puritan personal libraries. I focus particularly on the library auction catalogues of leading Puritans, notably Lazarus Seaman, Thomas Manton, Stephen Charnock and John Owen. I also show that of all Menasseh’s books, De resurrectione mortuorum libri III was the one most frequently owned by Puritan divines. This article demonstrates how books helped to catalyse the boundary-crossing nature of the Jewish–Christian encounter in seventeenth-century England.

Bulletin of the John Rylands Library
A cinematic saga
François Dubuisson

we never had freedom. You or I. All of our lives we have been under British rule. Now, we’ll be equal citizens in the free state of Israel. The resolution (of the UN) guarantees it. Taha: Guarantees are one thing, reality is another. Now it makes my lands part of Israel. Ben Canaan: These are still your lands. Taha: I’m a minority. Ben Canaan: We have always been friends. Minority, majority, we prove it makes no difference. Taha: If it makes no difference, why did you fight so hard to bring this about? Ben Canaan: Because we had hundreds of

Chapter 1 THE ARAB–ISRAELI FIGHT In the wartime environment of 1948, the Khairi family was expelled from their home in what is today Ramle, Israel. The Khairis, a Palestinian family, ended up in the West Bank. After the 1967 war, which brought the West Bank under Israeli rule, Bashir Khairi, a young boy in 1948, visited his former home in Ramle. But he was never able to regain control of the home or move back to it. Khairi, later a leader in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, drew a very clear lesson from the experience: ‘Force expelled us from

1 Islamism, Zionism and Israel: a war of no compromises and compromises during war Since its inception and through to the present time, one of the appeals of Islamism has been its ability to crystallize complex theological and p ­ olitical ideas into simple and catchy formulae. Accessible to all, these formulae masquerade as clear-cut, unwavering, undeniable truths that are not up for negotiation; their authority originates from divine revelation and is supported by the lessons learned from reality itself. Another appeal of Islamism, particularly from its

An inspiring model
Meir Hatina

The emancipation of the Arabs from the stranglehold of religious dogmatism and political tyranny was uppermost on the agenda of many Arab liberals, so much so that global and regional politics, and even the Arab–Israeli conflict, took a back seat. Others took a broad, integrative approach in which affairs outside the Arab world, specifically relations with the West and Israel, were also seen as critical. But this preoccupation with Western civilization and Israel created dilemmas for the liberal community. Colonial rule and Israeli

Palestinians are sometimes called cowards because, it is said, they send their children to be killed in their stead. What I actually see here is children who talk granny and grandpa out of going all the way. Régis Debray, 2008 2 Palestine and Israel hold an important place in my research trajectory. Their importance is in keeping with the political role played by a territory that has become the extension of the US and Europe in the Middle East. I had traveled to Israel to encounter the

Agustín Tosco Propaganda was published in the Argentine film journal El Amante Cine. It was written by Israel Adrián Caetano before his film Pizza, Beer and Cigarettes (Caetano and Stagnaro, 1998) triggered the concept of New Argentine Cinema. In this provocative text, Caetano criticised the way Argentine cinema had usually been made and, in a form of manifesto, he presented the principles that his own films – and those of many other young directors – have followed since then. Although New Argentine Cinema has been thoroughly studied in the English-speaking academia, only a few authors have made reference to this seminal text. Being aware of the principles set in this manifesto more than twenty years ago will help researchers and students understand some important features that tend to be overlooked when exploring not only Argentinean cinema, but also many other cinemas of the region.

constitutional barriers has helped Germany forestall representation of extremist parties at the federal Parliament level over the course of years and, in turn, has also helped stabilise the democratic system.

However, the role of the Israeli political party went far
