Beyond the Handshake

Multilateral Cooperation in the Arab-Israeli Peace Process, 1991-1996

Arabs and Israelis have battled one another in political and military arenas, seemingly continuously, for some fifty years. The 1991 Madrid Peace Conference sought to change this pattern, launching bilateral and multilateral tracks in the Arab-Israeli peace process. As a result, a broad group of Arab states sat down with Israel and began to cooperate on a wide range of regional issues in what became known as the Middle East multilaterals. Yet why did enemies reluctant even to recognize one another choose to cooperate on regional problems? And once this process began, what drove the parties to continue such cooperation or, in some cases, halt their cooperative efforts? Beyond the Handshake addresses these fundamental questions, exploring the origins of the multilaterals and the development of multilateral cooperation in the areas of arms control and regional security, economic development, water management, and the environment. Dalia Dassa Kaye, challenging conventional concepts of cooperation, argues that multilateral cooperation in the Middle East must be appreciated as a process of interaction rather than solely as a set of outcomes. Presenting theoretical insights of value to students of regional and international relations, Beyond the Handshake provides a unique look at the evolving nature of Arab-Israeli relations and exposes the foundation the multilateral peace process laid for future regional cooperation in the Middle East.

de Gaulle, Israel und die Juden

»Ein Elitevolk, selbstsicher und herrschsüchtig«, so nannte Frankreichs Staatschef de Gaulle die Juden Israels, nachdem sie sich in einem erfolgreichen Krieg um ihr persönliches und staatliches Dasein den Sieg und zumindest Respekt unter den Völkern verschafft hatten. Raymond Aron ist überzeugt, daß de Gaulle mit dieser Aussage einen neuen Antisemitismus förmlich autorisiert und ›hoffähig‹ gemacht hat. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

The multiple crises permeating the Middle East, are teaching both the Arabs and Jews that they must strive to live together. For the Arabs, many elements including language, religion, history, and culture are forcing them towards democracy, more unity, less conflict and greater cohesion. For Israel, it is proving impossible to survive as an Island in a turbulent see of Arabs and Moslems. Time has come for all to start looking in the same direction and coalesce under the same banner. A united Pan-Arab States is becoming inevitable.

Der Judenstaat

Grundlagen des zionistischen Denkens

Der Judenstaat. Versuch einer modernen Lösung der Judenfrage ist ein Buch von Theodor Herzl, mit dem er versuchte, eine jüdische Antwort auf die damals so genannte Judenfrage aufzuzeigen. Herzl schrieb es unter dem Eindruck der Dreyfus-Affäre; er beendete das Manuskript am 17. Juni 1895. Den Grund für den seiner Ansicht nach wachsenden Antisemitismus sieht er in der mangelnden sozialen Mobilität, die durch Benachteiligungen der Juden entsteht. Eine totale soziologische Assimilation lehnt Herzl jedoch ab, da die jüdische Volkspersönlichkeit geschichtlich zu berühmt und trotz aller Erniedrigungen zu hoch sei. Sie sei zu wertvoll für den Untergang. Davon abgesehen sei eine Assimilation nur dann möglich, wenn man die Juden einmal für zwei Generationen in Ruhe ließe. Dies würde aber nicht passieren, worauf der Druck sie wieder an den alten Stamm presse, der Hass ihrer Umgebung mache sie wieder zu Fremden. Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) war ein österreichisch-ungarischer Schriftsteller jüdischer Herkunft, Publizist und Journalist und der Begründer des modernen politischen Zionismus. Er gilt deshalb als der zentrale Vordenker und zugleich als aktiver Wegbereiter eines modernen Judenstaats, der später in Form des modernen Staates Israel Realität wurde.
