Jewish Identity and Palestinian Rights: Diaspora Jewish Opposition to Israel

by David Landy - £26.99  Zed Books Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848139268 | ISBN 10: 1848139268

Diaspora Jews are increasingly likely to criticise Israel and support Palestinian rights. In the USA, Europe and elsewhere, Jewish organisations have sprung up to oppose Israelís treatment of Palestinians, facing harsh criticism from fellow Jews for their actions.
 
Why and how has this movement come about? What does it mean for Palestinians and for diaspora Jews? Jewish Identity and Palestinian Rights is a groundbreaking study of this vital and growing worldwide social movement, examining in depth how it challenges traditional diasporic Jewish representations of itself. It looks at why people join this movement and how they relate to the Palestinians and their struggle, asking searching questions about transnational solidarity movements.
 
This book makes an important contribution to Israel/Palestine and Jewish studies and responds to urgent questions in social movement theory.
