Zionism in Arab discourses introduces a groundbreaking thesis to
the study of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Through analyses of
hundreds of texts written by Arab Islamists and liberals from the
late 19th century to the "Arab Spring", the book demonstrates that
the Zionist enterprise has played a dual function of an enemy and a
mentor. Islamists and liberals alike discovered, respectively, in
Zionism and in Israeli society qualities they sought to implement
in their societies. Fascinating and unexpected Arab points of views
on different aspects of Zionism are uncovered - From the first
Zionist Congress to First Lebanon War; from gardening in the early
years of Tel Aviv to women service in the IDF. The book is as an
indispensible, nuanced source on the development of Arab Islamist
and liberal views on Zionism and Israel. It is essential reading
for experts and students in the fields of Middle Eastern Studies,
Israel Studies, international relations, Culture Studies and
