The well-known historian and political scientist Zeev Sternhell here advances a radically new interpretation of the founding of modern Israel. The founders claimed that they intended to create both a landed state for the Jewish people and a socialist society. However, according to Sternhell, socialism served the leaders of the influential labor movement more as a rhetorical resource for the legitimation of the national project of establishing a Jewish state than as a blueprint for a just society. In this thought-provoking book, Sternhell demonstrates how socialist principles were consistently subverted in practice by the nationalist goals to which socialist Zionism was committed. Sternhell explains how the avowedly socialist leaders of the dominant labor party, Mapai, especially David Ben Gurion and Berl Katznelson, never really believed in the prospects of realizing the "dream" of a new society, even though many of their working-class supporters were self-identified socialists. The founders of the state understood, from the very beginning, that not only socialism but also other universalistic ideologies like liberalism, were incompatible with cultural, historical, and territorial nationalism. Because nationalism took precedence over universal values, argues Sternhell, Israel has not evolved a constitution or a Bill of Rights, has not moved to separate state and religion, has failed to develop a liberal concept of citizenship, and, until the Oslo accords of 1993, did not recognize the rights of the Palestinians to independence. This is a controversial and timely book, which not only provides useful historical background to Israel's ongoing struggle to mobilize its citizenry to support a shared vision of nationhood, but also raises a question of general significance: is a national movement whose aim is a political and cultural revolution capable of coexisting with the universal values of secularism, individualism, and social justice? This bold critical reevaluation will unsettle long-standing myths as it contributes to a fresh new historiography of Zionism and Israel. At the same time, while it examines the past, The Founding Myths of Israel reflects profoundly on the future of the Jewish State.

"Chez moi, on était juifs de père en fils. Enfant, je le fus donc à mon tour. Mais pour quoi faire ? À douze ans, je croisais le chemin d'un vieil homme au regard profond: Sauras-tu en faire autre chose qu'un mot?" C'est ainsi que tout a commencé. Depuis la guerre, ma famille entière demeurait tapie dans le silence. Je devrais tout apprendre par moi-même. Entre les bus de Vichy remplis d'israélites et ceux de Maurice Papou chargés de bougnoules, le monde m'apparut comme gelé de l'intérieur. À l'école, les gamins antisémites me faisaient honte, sans que je sache dire vraiment de quoi. 'Fous avaient décidé pour moi ce qu'était être juif: Auschwitz et Israël, en boucle jusqu'à l'épuisement. Était-ce seulement cela ?"--P. [4] of cover.

  • The Soviet Jewry movement in America : an historical perspective
  • The Soviet Jewry movement before 1985 : Gorbachev and the promise of a new chapter for Soviet Jews
  • The United States government and the Soviet Jewry movement in America : Bush, Reagan, Congress and the Department of State
  • Tactics and strategy of the Soviet Jewry movement : loud voices or quiet diplomacy?
  • American Jewry chooses : aliya to Israel or rescue to America
  • The last months : emigration becomes reality.
Between 1967 and 1991, almost half of the entire Jewish population of the Soviet Union left for freedom to Israel, America, and other western countries. "From Exodus to Freedom The History of the Soviet Jewry Movement" tells the story of the American Jewish community's involvement in this exodus, and is the first of its kind to explore how such a massive emigration occurred for a population virtually written-off by world Jewry as doomed just two decades before.
