Novel featuring Palestinian-Jewish romance threatens ‘Jewish identity,’ Israeli gov’t rules

Israel takes another step down a very dark path. Here is the news from Haaretz today:

Israel Bans Novel on Arab-Jewish Romance From Schools for ‘Threatening Jewish Identity’

Israel’s Education Ministry has disqualified a novel that describes a love story between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man from use by high schools..

Move comes despite the fact that the official responsible for teaching of literature in secular state schools recommended the book for use in advanced literature classes, as did a professional committee of academics and educators…

“Young people of adolescent age tend to romanticizing and don’t, in many cases, have the systemic vision that includes considerations involving maintaining the identity of the people and the significance of assimilation.”

The novel is Borderlife by Dorit Rabinyan. It is blurbed by Amos Oz. A description:

What begins in the cold of early New York winter ends on a Jaffa beach at summer’s blinding peak. A chance encounter brings two strangers together: Liat, an Israeli from Tel Aviv, and Hilmi, a Palestinian born in Hebron. For one frozen winter away from home, on snowy streets, filled with longing for a Middle Eastern sun, Liat and Hilmi demarcate the place reserved only for them, an intimate short-term place, a universe for two. At the fissures and margins of things, in corners and in gaps, the reality lurking in Israel peers and snarls at them. The story, with its twists and passions, follows them even when they each go their own way – Liat returning to Tel Aviv and Hilmi to the village of Jifna, north of Ramallah – refusing to end.

What will liberal Zionists say about this?When do you conclude that this kind of intolerance and racism is built into the very idea of religious nationalism? Henry Siegman writes in Haaretz today that American liberal values are not shared by Israel. And yes, we’re trying to live up to them over here; but it’s impossible to imagine this kind of official action here.

Thanks to Ofer Neiman.

    “Young people of adolescent age tend to romanticizing and don’t, in many cases, have the systemic vision that includes considerations involving maintaining the identity of the people and the significance of assimilation.”

    Didn’t Zionists assert that once they got the Jewish state they wouldn’t have to worry about assimilation anymore? Instead the one place they fear it the most IS in the Jewish state.

    Go figure.

    I wouldn’t be so surprised that there wouldn’t be an outrage.

    After all, establishment Jewish groups have made a crusade against intermarriage for decades now, even as they teach their children to speak out against white Christians who are against interracial marrage as intolerant or worse.

    So living in a nation that is open to mixing and difference as a minority and supporting an ethnosupremacist Apartheidstate is not really that different in light of previous hypocrisy.

    My question is: when will we stop actually allowing these people to be called liberals? They’re not liberals. And furthermore, they never were in the first place.

      It’s that and more. Israel functions as an escape for American Jewish liberal Zionists. Not an escape from the anti-Semitic bogeyman but from the threat of losing “Jewish identity”. Actually, a particular kind of Jewish identity that was created as a cozy response to real anti-Semitism. So, Israel has to be at war to get to that identity. And Israel is the antidote to American Jewish insecurities. So, while they may feel a tug of their conscience, their actual feeling will be one of satisfaction. They are getting their money’s worth from the Israel project. It’s working. Israel is standing on guard against American Jewish assimilation.

    What depressing news with which to end a generally gloomy year! No-one’s been killed, maimed or falsely imprisoned by banning “Borderlife” but the prohibition tells at least as much about the condition of Israel and Israeli society as any number of extra-judicial killings or the destruction of ancient olive groves by Kahanist settlers. On reading this, one immediately realises that it could have been only a matter of time before such a story surfaced. The Zio-paths live by – and bring the people with them through – fear as Yigal Caspi’s Hermann Göring post on Facebook acknowledges. Fear of ideas runs as a common thread through Fascism and other totalitarian and colonial ideologies. And “Borderlife” is clearly „entartete Literatur“……

Israel is a beacon of light to all racists everwhere. It is their utopia and everything they dream of. If course each racist wants it only for their own tribe. Suck on this duke!

    Well the Zionists may fear assimilation most in the ‘Jewish’ state but the place where it happens most is of course the diaspora. In Europe and the USA it is probably over 50% indeed in the USA it is well over 50% but only the bigoted and Orthodox (much the same) and Zionists object. In Israel it is ‘national treason’ etc.

    I just wonder what law the book was banned under? I wasn’t aware that the Knesset had formally adopted the Nuremburg Laws of 1935 but I stand to be corrected!

      Tony, it’s far worse than that, if the truth were stated plainly. As far as I know, it’s very close to 100%. Every Jewish baby born in the US is immediately and without consent assimilated as a citizen of the US.
      Of course, how they wish to cut their hair or dress is up to them, but I don’t think it gets them out of being assimilated.

        of the top of my head, arab novels with Jewish characters, portrayed as human and as objects of desire/affection

        The Tobacco Keeper by Ali Bader, it even describes in detail the inner experience of a Jew watching Arabs commit acts of savagery against Jews, but we are less ideologically hamstrung than Euro/Americans,

        Beer in the Snooker club by Ghali has Edna, a great Egyptian character (Jewish forced in to exile)

        specters by Ashour is strange, her Israeli characters are not sympathetic, but then she spends a lot of time rebuilding the Jews of Cairo as an imminent presence.

        St. Teresa by abdel maguid is all in a Jewish mind, hopes fears that sort of thing, splendidly sympathetic

        The Handsome Jew by Ali Muqri, the Imams daughter falls for him.

        I could go on but Khalid Kihstainy has a book “By the rivers of Babylon” about Jews in Arab fiction, i read a few years ago a thing on Arab characters in Israeli fiction, all i recall is that Mizrahim had Arab characters that were recognizably human, and despite The Ashkenazim, being the foremost in humanity it turns out they write crap cardboard Arab characters for ideological reasons, you know Arabs like in American Sniper.

        @zaid, this TV series is more the rule. Bringing up exceptions and one-off examples like the book mentioned in this article proves nothing and does not recognize the fact that Israel encourages a level of freedom that is unparalleled. Bringing up solitary examples in the Israeli context whilst ignoring the mountain of state-sanctioned anti-semitic material produced in the Arab world is disingenuous and typical of MW.

        @talknic, twist a story to suit your agenda (from the Anti-Israel rulebook). There is no state sponsored censorship operating here – any citizen who seeks out the book will be able to read it. The labelling of this ban as being applied by “Israel” (the nation) is a typical distortion used by propagandists to get their demonization message across. This is an action by an educatIonal authority that has deemed a book unsuitable for use in schools. This kind of thing occurs in countries all over the world and whenever it does it barely raises a whimper, but when it happens in Israel the fanatics drool and MW goes into a frenzy.

        While book banning does occur, it doesn´t occur in any democratic, developed country that a book is banned because it promotes the mixing of ethnicities. The news here is that one of the most economically advanced states in the world adheres to Middle-Age standards when it comes to education.

        Also, this is hardly an isolated fact, but part of a process ignited in 2011 by Tzipi Hotovely, who hosted a hearing in the Knesset on how to educate Jews so that they won’t intermarry; Bentzi Gopstein (of “Christians are vampires” fame) was one of the speakers invited. The conclusions of that hearing are now being implemented. I can’t imagine such an atrociously racist meeting taking place in any other parliament in the democratic world, but if I’m wrong feel free to illuminate me, by all means.

        Mayhem: “This kind of thing occurs in countries all over the world and whenever it does it barely raises a whimper, but when it happens in Israel the fanatics drool and MW goes into a frenzy.”

        The USSR, Nazi Germany, Maoist China and Iran immediately spring to mind as states where government ministers controlled the educational curriculum, but I think (regarding pluralist and liberal democracies) you overstate hugely your case (“barely raises a whimper”). Political nominees may be capable of determining broad matters of policy (supported by civil servants, expert advisers and interested parties) but rarely have the capability or expertise to determine the detail of curricula and syllabi – which is overwhelmingly best delegated to professional educators (who were blatantly overridden in this case.)

        You may find of interest the following comments regarding the U.K. national curriculum:

        “A bit of history …. is salutary here. Although it is hard to remember now, the very idea of a national curriculum was once regarded as decidedly un-British. The precedents were not good; the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany each had a national curriculum. In postwar Britain, it was considered dangerously totalitarian for government ministers to control what was taught in schools.

        “So, when Margaret Thatcher’s government legislated for a national curriculum in England and Wales in 1988, several measures were included to constrain ministers from shaping the curriculum to their own particular views.

        “The secretary of state had to follow certain procedures, including laying Curriculum Orders before parliament; these required a positive resolution in both houses. All proposals had to be referred to the National Curriculum Council (NCC), the predecessor of the QCDA. The NCC had to consult teachers and “other persons” and could make its own recommendations. If the secretary of state rejected its advice he had to set out his reasons and go through the process of getting another order through parliament.”

        ie, if a book is banned from the 8th grade reading list of a summer program in Lewes, Del. or “Challenged at the Cedar Grove Middle School in Wilmington, N.C., (2014) because “the book contains numerous depictions of sexual behavior…racism, vulgar language, bullying, and violence.” it’s not “banned in the US”, it’s banned at one school (or in some instances one school library) in the US. nice try.

  13. Ossinev
    December 31, 2015, 1:31 pm

    @Kris
    “Whatever next”.
    Perhaps if the miscegenation gets really bad they may choose to follow their illustrious Fascist forebears and come up with a Lebensborn (‘fountain of life’) plan. Main problem with this would be having to choose whether the ideal Jewish Zionist should be “blonde and blue eyed Aryan ” or “dark haired,brown eyed Mediterranean”. I suspect the former as they really don`t like to think of themselves as being remotely Middle Eastern.

    @ a blah chick
    “Wasn’t Netanyahu married to a non Jewish woman at one time ?”
    Can`t find anything on this. Perhaps you are thinking about the rumours circulating last year that his presumably “non miscegenated ” son was dating a non – Jewish Norwegian woman.

    See interesting article from Haaretz together with links and some sublimely racist “comments” at http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.571304

    Not sure whether she is blue eyed but she is certainly blonde and Nitay would secretly have been relieved that she was Aryanesque – it could have been hell for him if his son had chosen an Ethiopian or Indian Jewess to romance.

    In 2011 Tzipi Hotovely, a rising star among Likud lawmakers, hosted a hearing in the Knesset on the subject of how to educate Jews so that they won’t marry Arabs. Bentzi Gopstein, an avowed racist who has called Christians “vampires,” was invited to speak at that hearing.

    So I guess this book ban should come as no surprise. Of course, under the advice of their PR people the Israeli government is careful not to officially adopt the anti-miscegenation and exclusivist policies they encourage or advocate through other means. But when you scratch under the veneer you find unadulterated racism.

    A Semitic man can wed & bed a woman from any ethnicity & their children are Semites.
    1 Semitic lineages are patrilneal
    1.1 Called “Y” Chromosome
    .
    2 Case Example: Bathsheba was a Semitic noble woman, daughter of the statesman Ahitophel, married to the Hamitic Hittite Uriah
    2.1 Why was she rejected if the Jewish premise that women is how ethnicity is not false?
    2.3 Once Bathsheba marries King David & fathers Solomon: Solomon is the Heir to the Tribe of Judah Monarchy & Shem’s Sectpre
    .
    3. Genesis 2:24 Covenant is that woman becomes the respective man’s family of partner, tribe, & clan.
    3.1 Jewish premised claim that its an ethnicity is false: Ethnicity originates from one man’s “Y” chromosome
    3.2 Ph 14 “Jewishness is not defined genetically. Other Y-chromosomes can enter the Jewish gene pool through conversion or through a non-Jewish father. Jewish status is determined by the mother. Tribe membership follows the father’s line.”
    3.2.1 Source http://www.cohen-levi.org/…/the_dna_chain_of_tradition.htm
    .
    4 Jewishness is the political ideology of Tribe of ten Israel & not an ethnicity.
    4.1 Absurd claim that [Genesis 10:2 Magog] Demagogues &
    [Genesis 10:3 Gomer] Ashkenazi could be Semitic Pelegite Abramite Jacobites

    What next for the Land of Creation?Extermination/mass expulsion is not an option in dealing with the Israeli and Palestinian Arab population.Perhaps Hotovely(not to be confused with Hotlovely) together with her ideological sister Shaked could be tasked with coming up with some sort of interim or final solution. Why not for example a one child only policy for Israeli Arab citizens – it sort of worked in China. Israel already has of course an active Arab child reduction policy in the West Bank and Gaza and this would have to beefed up. No great problem in the West Bank where the IOF can be issued with a significantly greater number of existentially threatening kitchen knives to scatter around checkpoints after their DIY elimination sprees. Gaza is less of a problem with the regular lawn mowing and the deliberate malnourishment of children which should keep the population in check.

    Piece of cake for the people who invented Cherry Tomatoes.

      Nice done!

      But what a dilemma this presents to Zio-supremacists! They want to love the gay stuff – because, y’know, that’s what Zio-supremacists do – but they can’t love it because it involves a Jew kissing a dirty, nasty, horrible Ay-rab*! :-(

    Apartheid alive and well in zio land:

    “Reports of discrimination against Palestinian citizens of Israel in the past week have not been limited to the government. Two Palestinian Israelis were removed from an Aegean Airlines flight to Greece on Monday night — having already passed through Israel’s airport security — when Jewish passengers insisted they were a security threat and needed to be expelled. The complaining passengers stood up in the aisles, creating enough of a fuss to prevent the airplane from taking off.
    “Imagine what it’s like to be an Arab citizen in Israel today — only dread and despair,” Gideon Levy, a famously provocative progressive columnist for Haaretz, wrote in response to the week’s events. “You live in your country on probation. No authority will help you.”
    “Perhaps soon we’ll have flights for Jews only,” Levy mused darkly.”
