Uri Avnery (Contributor). A reflection on Roane Carey and Jonathan Shanin, e. The Other Israel: Voices of Refusal and Dissent (New York: The New Press, 2002). The Other Israel should embolden us, render us more thoughtful, not only about the situation in Israel/Palestine, but about our responsibility as citizens of and religious practitioners in the United States, the global hegemon. For as we learn of what risks these Israelis are taking to be in solidarity with the Palestinian people under siege, we can extend ourselves – our posteriors, our hands, our feet – in the direction of ethical clarity and social insecurity.

But after reading The other Israel, one feels that challenging the occupation and Ariel Sharon is only part of what this collection of 26 Israeli writers offers. In many ways, it does what few books critical of Israel have been able to do, and that is to speak directly to an Israeli audience and to pro-Israel supporters around the world

"The Other Israel" is truly a gem and will probably be the best read of the year. Not only for the historic perspective given, but also for the way these writers have literally bared their souls on a subject they feel so strongly about.
In today's oversimplified coverage of the Middle East conflict that we see on the media, "The Other Israel" will take you on a journey to places you've never been before, and may very well make you doubt what you once believed.
These 37 essays are a contribution by Jewish novelists, historians, journalists, activists, as well as several military officers who have refused to serve in the occupied territories. All who hope that their voices will be heard around the world, and especially by their own people who, like most in America, will have their perceptions shaped by what the government tells them, what they see on the media, and often more than not, what they don't see.
As a collective, the essays represent a growing discontented movement within Israel itself that questions the morality of the occupation, the mindset upon which it has endured, the terrible hardship on the Palestinian people, and the effect on Israeli society as a whole.
No longer able to ignore their moral convictions, and acutely aware of the turmoil beset both sides, these writers expose the failings of the past peace processes, the myths that have been perpetuated over the years, and the apartheid conditions the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land has created. They condemn what the occupation has done to the moral fiber of their military, along with not only the price they pay as a society, but with their standing in the world community as well.
None of these essays are terribly long, and some are amazingly short. But they are sophisticated in that they manage to convey complicated accounts of history along with deep personal perspectives in a relatively short amount of space due to the exquisite writing. Almost all are haunting. Some are point-blank in your face accusations and I was caught off guard, but I witnessed more in these pages then any documentary video I've seen on the subject. If these pages don't strike some deep nerve within you then nothing will.
As you read, it will become apparent that these essays took much courage on the part of the writers, knowing full well that they might, at the very least, be labeled as `self hating Jews' and at the very worst, traitors by the hard right Zionist wing. The essays were written last year just falling short of the current roadmap process, but nonetheless will still give an incredible insight into what has been going on over there.
Often the writings depict the internal struggle within the authors themselves. On one hand there is a great need to be part of the greater Jewish solidarity, the wish for their country to live peaceably and prosper, while on the other as one essayist points out, the anguish that comes from "knowing all this, yet crying little, and keeping quiet too often."

This is truly a book written by the REAL CHOSEN ONES.
The TRUE JEWS. People of God. Full of humaness, integrity,truth and a highly evolve soul.
These are writers that have an ease to put down on paper, what comes from their souls.
These are the people ALL us humans, MUST look up to.
As a Christian, these Israelite-Jews, through their actoions and writings, broguht tears to my eyes and a wrenching to my soul.
This is a MUST read for all in the globe.
Words, cannot describe the excellence in humanity of these writers.They have RENEWED my faith in that truly, there are still Jews, that are the CHOSEN ONES.
A book written with a NAKED TRUTH that few may be able to handle.
This book was written by True messengers of God.
From a Christian to the these Israelite-Jews writers: My reverence to you all !
God bless you !

During the late eighties to mid nineties, one of the defining political movement was "Peace Now" the broad based, umbrella groups seeking peace with the Palestinians and the surrounding Arab nations. With the assasination of Rabin, the advent of suicide/homicide bombings, the new intifada, and collapse of peace talks at Camp David and Taba, "Peace Now" is now a shadow of its former self and its not hard to meet disillusioned Israelis who once supported its goals but now want nothing to do with it.
The fact was and is that "Peace Now" while broad in its heydey was very shallow in its position. Together with Meretz and Labor "doves" they sought friendship first and justice toward the Palestinians later; not realizing that that it could only be justice first and then friendship. This crucial misunderstanding defines the failure of the traditional peace groups/parties in Israel. (The fact that they scrupulously avoided ever criticized Israeli government policy.)
Fortunely there still is a hard core of "peaceniks." At perhaps 20-30% of the population they are a minority, but they are a substantial minority. The groups they make up include "Gush-Shalom" the hard core "Peace Bloc" which calls for a two state solution and a sharing of Jerusalem, "Ometz Lesarev" ("Courage to Refuse") the conditional objector movement of reservists who refuse to serve in the occupied territories, Rabbis for Human Rights, B'Tselem the Palestian-Israeli human rights organization, Ta'Ayush the cooperative movement of young people of Jewish and Arabic backgrounds participating in non-violent direct action and reliefl efforts in the occupied territories, the Campaign against Home Demolitions, the Women in Black, among others.
This anthology covers a generous cross section this opinion, not usually covered in the US media: from "new historian" Avi Schlaim, to veteran "muckraker" Uri Avnery, to hard hitting journalists Tanya Rheinhart and Amira Hass, to several members of the "refuser" movements. The contents of the this book will challenge many recieved notions that govern the coverage of Israel/Palestine in the US media, including the nature of the occupation, the bad faith with which Oslo was carried out, the true responsibility for the failures at Camp David and Taba.
The editors strove for comprehensiveness, but I still can think of two glaring omissions: Ran HaCohen whose column "Letter from Israel" appears (and is archived) on antiwar.com, and Stephen Langfur, author of CONFESSION FROM A JERICHO JAIL, who was a precursor of the "Ometz" movement and is presently editor for Challenge Magazine, where his continuing work on the rights and conditions of Arab workers and their role in the context of globalization is quite remarkable. There is also something of a generational bias in the selection, material from Ta'ayush and Between the Lines magazine are unaccounted for. While biographies for the contributors are included in the back of the book a list of organizations and websites is not. Shame!
Several other caveats, little in this book is new to anyone who is "up" on the Peace movement in Israel. Indeed most of this material is availabe online at the websites of gush-shalom, seruv.org, the Israel Committe Against Home Demolitions, globalresearch.ca. It's there if you know where to look, on the other hand its very convenient to have it all in one place.
Also, the pieces in this volume are very much of the moment, hence it will of necessity become very dated, very quickly. Still for anyone who doesn't know that there is a peace movement in Israel (or worse still that it died in 2000) this book will be an an excellent starting point. Get one for yourself and another for the next person you meet how goes of on how Arafat "walked away" from "Barak's generous offer."
