This book is a comparison of two ethnic-national "apartheid"
states ? South Africa and Israel ? which have been in conflict, and
how internal dissent has developed. In particular it examines the
evolution of effective white protest in South Africa and explores
the reasons why comparably powerful movements have not emerged in
The book reveals patterns of behaviour shared by groups in both
cases. It argues that although the role played by protest groups in
peace-building may be limited, a tipping point, or ?magic point?,
can become as significant as other major factors. It highlights the
role played by intermediate variables that affect the pathways of
protest groups: such as changes in the international system; the
visions and strategies of resistance movements and their degree of
success; the economic relationship between the dominant and
dominated side; and the legitimacy of the ideology in power
(apartheid or Zionism).
Although the politics and roles of protest groups in both cases
share some similarities, differences remain. Whilst white protest
groups moved towards an inclusive peace agenda that adopts the ANC
vision of a united non-racial democratic South Africa, the Jewish
Israeli protest groups are still, by majority, entrenched in their
support for an exclusive Jewish state. And as such, they support
separation between the two peoples and a limited division of
mandatory Palestine / ?Eretz Israel?. This timely book sheds light
on a controversial and explosive political issue: Israel being
compared to apartheid South Africa.
