This book is about the social history of the Arab Jews—Jews living in Arab countries—against the backdrop of Zionist nationalism. By using the term Arab Jews (rather than Mizrahim, which literally means Orientals) the book challenges the binary opposition between Arabs and Jews in Zionist discourse, a dichotomy that renders the linking of Arabs and Jews in this way inconceivable.   The Complete Book of Nehemiah Given the poison between Arabs and Jews today, isn't it appropriate that their relationship was born in strife? The wealthiest Jews exploit a famine by buying.

One Palestine, Complete explores the tumultuous period before the creation of the state of Israel. This was the time of the British Mandate, when Britain's promise to both Jews and Arabs that they would inherit the land, set in motion the conflict that haunts the region to this day. Read full review5/5(2).   Jews and Arabs from Israel kiss after the Israeli ministry of education removed a book describing an affair between a Jewish woman and an Arab man from school curricula. The participants include couples, friends and strangers all with the same simple aim in mind. To prove that love can conquer hate.

Why is there so much animosity between Jews and Arabs / Muslims? First, it is important to note that not all Arabs are Muslims and not all Muslims or Jews hate one another. But there is, generally speaking, a long-standing animosity between Jews and Arabs. The reasons for this situation are complex and have a basis extending back to biblical times. A book on the relationships between Jews and Arabs through the ages needs no justification. These relationships have been so influential on the destinies of the two peoples and, to some extent, on the general course of history, that they deserve study in their own right.

This history of the Jews is written through the ideas of a devout Christian who believes, i think wrongly, that Jesus intended to abandon Judaism in order to start a new religion.

The thesis in this difficult but important first book by Alcalay is that conventional modes of interpreting Western civilization- its history and belief in its own superiority to other cultures- have left little room for the complex play of Semitic and non-Semitic culture in the Levant, and for the roles of Arabs and Jews in the formation of European cultures.
