Modernity and gender in arab accounts of the 1948 and 1967 defeats


Journal Article

The victory which the Zionists have achieved…lies not in the superiority of one people over another, but rather in the superiority of one system over another. The reason for this victory is that the roots of Zionism are grounded in modern Western life while we for the most part are still distant from this life and hostile to it. They live in the present and for the future while we continue to dream the dreams of the past and to stupify ourselves with its fading glory. © 2000, Cambridge University Press. All rights reserved.
