Using TAU to promote his political agenda, Yehouda Shenhav "Beyond the Two-State Solution A Jewish Political Essay"

 

TAU, Prof. Yehouda Shenhav


TAU Prof. Yehouda Shenhav
Dept. Sociology & Anthropology

Editorial Note:
Yehouda Shenhav (TAU), was hired by the Sociology Department to teach and research sociology of organizations but moved on to the more "glamorous" field of Israeli-Palestinian conflict and ethnic relations. Along the way, Shenhav, who once worked for the Israeli Military Industry (Rafael), had reinvented himself as a neo-Marxist, critical scholar. As a consummate practitioner of the new paradigm, Shenhav has devoted most of his academic career to attacking the "Zionist narratives."
According to Shenhav, Mizrahim a.k.a, Arab Jews are victims of Zionism that alienated them from their cultural kin, the Arabs. He asserted that once these Arab Jews realize that they were mislead by the Zionists, they would join his proposed Palestinian- Mizrahi coalition to undermine the "Zionist project." ††Shenhav's name change, did not impress the Mizrahim; instead of†forging a "post-Zionist" alliance with the Palestinians, many†of them joined the Shas Party that has sustained the success of right-wing Likud governments.
But Shenhav does not seem to be daunted by such discrepancies between reality and his writings.††In his new book Shenhav promotes his political agenda, the one-state solution, and wastes more TAU's money in the process.

Beyond the Two-State Solution

A Jewish Political Essay

By: Yehouda Shenhav (Tel Aviv University)

 

For over two decades, many liberals in Israel have attempted, with wide international support, to implement the two-state solution: Israel and Palestine, partitioned on the basis of the Green Line - that is, the line drawn by the 1949 Armistice Agreements that defined Israelís borders until 1967, before Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza following the Six-Day War. By going back to Israelís pre-1967 borders, many people hope to restore Israel to what they imagine was its pristine, pre-occupation character and to provide a solid basis for a long-term solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.†

In this original and controversial essay, Yehouda Shenhav argues that this vision is an illusion that ignores historical realities and offers no long-term solution. It fails to see that the real problem is that a state was created in most of Palestine in 1948 in which Jews are the privileged ethnic group, at the expense of the Palestinians - who also must live under a constant state of emergency. The issue will not be resolved by the two-state solution, which will do little for the millions of Palestinian refugees and will also require the uprooting of hundreds of thousands of Jews living across the Green Line. All these obstacles require a bolder rethinking of the issues: the Green Line should be abandoned and a new type of polity created on the complete territory of mandatory Palestine, with a new set of constitutional arrangements that address the rights of both Palestinians and Jews, including the settlers.
