My Promised Land The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel

review My Promised Land The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ari Shavit ä 3 free read A groundbreaking ambitious and authoritative examination of Israel by one of the most influential columnists writing about the Middle East today My Promised Land tells the story of Israel as it has never been told before Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis Through revealing stories of significant events and of ordinary individuals pioneers immigrants entrepreneurs scientists army generals peaceniks settlers and Palestinians Israeli journalist Ari Shavit illuminates many of the pivotal moments of the Zionist century that led Israel to where it is to. Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis Ari Shavit draws on interviews historical documents private diariesand letters as well as his own family story illuminating the pivotal moments of theZionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts bothpersonal and national both deeply human and of profound historical dimension It s clear Shavit a secular leftist loves his country but is conflicted about the founding of Israel and the conflicts He s a strong believer in a two state solution He pretty much ignores the Biblical promise of the land to the people of Israel There is chapter in the book in which Shavit describes the expulsion of the Arabs of Lydda now Lod in 1948 He shows great sympathy for the Palestinian Arabs There are moving parts of the book especially when Young Holocaust survivors made a new life with himself in Israel Kibbutz builders Orange growers Young people dancing in the desert came together from their displacement Then there is a chapter in the book titled The New Yorker which seems to be the most anti Israel section in the book Shavit s aim was to be fair but The New Yorker chapter was a little depressing It seems it s only a matter of time until Israel will no longer be A Promised Land I feel it s the right thing to do to split the land yet I have my own memories and history Israel with Kibbutz life family in Israel etc and have emotional attachments The problems are complexgut wrenching rendering of a very distressing road traveled by both parties Ari Shavit did an excellent job with this book capturing the essence and beating heartbeat of the Middle East Well worth reading

Updated review Just took off two stars after reading this article Shame on you Ari ShavitI still think it s a great book but there s no way I m giving five stars to a work that includes intellectually dishonest reporting And if the seminal chapter on Lydda often excerpted as proof of Israel s wrongdoings was misleading what might that mean about some of the other book s claimsEarlier glowing review If you re searching for one word to capture the essence of Israel that word might be complex I lived in Israel for six years and it s a land of strong loud opinions and multiple conflicting perspectives It s hard to capture all of that in a book much less a readable and engaging one that s not too cumbersome yet not simplistic I ll leave it to smarter better informed people than I to judge whether Ari Shavit has fully achieved that in this book I ll simply say he comes close close enough for me to give the book five starsShavit makes a wise choice when he uses microhistory to examine Israel at different points of time from different perspectives with different goals in mind It makes for readable and engaging narratives that educate the reader Each of these narratives while seeming to focus on one or a few individuals shed light on the whole and offer insight into important segments of Israeli history and societyShavit begins with his great grandfather a devout British Jew who journeys to Palestine in 1897 Bentwich Shavit s great grandfather embraces Herzl s vision of a Jewish state in Israel with idealistic fervor and tunnel vision wholly absorbed in this great white hope for Jewish continuity and blind to the fact that people already live in PalestineShavit then takes us into a 1920s kibbutz where devoted pioneers settle the land at great personal sacrifice We visit an orange grove in the 1930s owned by a successful Jew who represents a further step on the road of Jews investing in Palestine developing self confidence and becoming a threat to their Arab neighbors We join a Jewish leader in the early 1940s as he hikes with a group to Masada asserting his ownership of the land and his identification with those who died resisting those who wanted to wrest that ownership from them The picture darkens as Shavit takes us to 1948 Lydda where the War of Independence displaces Arab civilians from their longtime homes Moving into the 1950s we encounter post Holocaust Jews who have suffered horrifically and found refuge in the new state of Israel No group Arab or Jew has a monopoly on displacement and suffering Shavit seems to be telling us here Shavit then takes us into the late 1960s where he explores the issue of Israel s developing nuclear power and what this means in terms of Israel s relationship with its many enemies We get the perspective of fervent settlers beginning in the mid 1970s individuals who believe it is incumbent upon them to build communities in the occupied territories in order to preserve Israel s existence Skipping ahead into the early 1990s we visit an army prison camp where Palestinian inmates interact with their ambivalent Israeli guards We then learn the story of the Oslo accords what they were supposed to achieve and how they failed Shavit introduces us to Aryeh Deri a Sephardic politician who gives us a window into some of Israel s internal turmoil He takes us into the club scene of the early 2000s where young Israelis rebel against the traditional austerity and idealism and existential fear and embrace hedonism as a kind of life affirming denial Shavit then introduces us to the Palestinian perspective of the mid 2000s We also learn about increasing capitalistic aspirations and demands for social justice among Israeli young adults We learn about the crisis posed by Iran and how and why it was ignored for too long Shavit pulls all of these stories interviews and perspectives together in his final chapters He describes Israel as having experienced a total of seven revolts the settlers revolt against political restraint the peace revolt against the existential reality of Israel the liberal judicial revolt against the all powerful state the Sephardic revolt against Eurocentric discrimination the Haredi revolt against secularism the hedonist individualistic revolt against Zionistic ideological conformity and the Palestinian revolt against Jewish nationalism While each of these revolts was justified and sought rights for an oppressed minority Shavit says their cumulative effect was divisive and destructive The early Ben Gurion state with its kibbutz socialist mentality and omnipotent government got the state through its early existential threats and forged the way for it to become a real country But this state also neglected the individual rights of a wide range of groups resulting in the fissures we have today Sadly today s government lacks the strength to reunite Israeli s multifaceted societyShavit describes the various threats to Israel from within and without as seven concentric circles The outermost he says is the Islamic circle Israel is surrounded by Islamic countries many of which are becoming increasingly radical and hostile to the Westernized democracy in their midst Inside that circle is the Arab circle Arab nationalism is on the rise creating political unrest and turmoil Inside that circle is the Palestinian circle a group of people who feels dispossessed by the Jewish state they never wanted So you ve got religious political and personal forces coming together to threaten Israel s existenceBut there are also threats from within Israeli society There are the Arab citizens to whom Israel has not figured out how to relate There is the loss of the utopian kibbutz idealism that drove earlier Israelis to build and defend their land There is the difficulty maintaining a democratic stance with growing minorities who don t share democratic values And ultimately there is the loss of identity and culture among Israelis Israelis no longer know who they really are Shavit states Shavit also acknowledges his pro peace leanings which are evident in the book while recognizing the realistic challenges to peace While no book can fully capture the complexities and fractures of Israeli society or offer a truly balanced perspective on Israel s volatile conflicts Shavit comes pretty close in this readable work Highly
