Examining the development of Israel’s policy toward the Palestinian refugee issue, this book spans the period following the first Arab-Israeli War until the mid-1950s, when the basic principles of Israel’s policy were finalized. Israel and the Palestinian Refugee Issue outlines and analyzes the various aspects that, together, created the mosaic of the "refugee problem" with which Israel has since had to contend. These aspects include issues of repatriation, resettlement, compensation, blocked bank accounts, internal refugees and family reunification. Drawing on extensive archival research, this book uses documents from Israeli government meetings, from the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and files from the office of the Prime Minister’s advisor on Arab affairs to address the many diverse aspects of this topic, and will be essential reading for academics and researchers with an interest in Israel, the Middle East, and political science more broadly.

Arabs and Israelis have battled one another in political and military arenas, seemingly continuously, for some fifty years. The 1991 Madrid Peace Conference sought to change this pattern, launching bilateral and multilateral tracks in the Arab-Israeli peace process. As a result, a broad group of Arab states sat down with Israel and began to cooperate on a wide range of regional issues in what became known as the Middle East multilaterals. Yet why did enemies reluctant even to recognize one another choose to cooperate on regional problems? And once this process began, what drove the parties to continue such cooperation or, in some cases, halt their cooperative efforts? Beyond the Handshake addresses these fundamental questions, exploring the origins of the multilaterals and the development of multilateral cooperation in the areas of arms control and regional security, economic development, water management, and the environment. Dalia Dassa Kaye, challenging conventional concepts of cooperation, argues that multilateral cooperation in the Middle East must be appreciated as a process of interaction rather than solely as a set of outcomes. Presenting theoretical insights of value to students of regional and international relations, Beyond the Handshake provides a unique look at the evolving nature of Arab-Israeli relations and exposes the foundation the multilateral peace process laid for future regional cooperation in the Middle East.

This volume analyzes the political, economic and strategic dimensions of the recent upheavals in the Middle East known as the Arab Spring. Mass demonstrations in many Arab states challenged the political status quo and the existing political and cultural system in the region. While it is too early to offer a definitive analysis of the impact of the widespread discontent in the Arab world, the trajectory of the events indicates regime change in several states, containment of political unrest in most states, increase in Islamic tendencies, centrifugal tendencies in a number of political units and deterioration of economic conditions. This volume presents an initial assessment by a selected group of Israeli scholars of the implications of the Arab Spring. The chapters focus on important issues such as democratization, the role of economic factors in political change and explanations for variations in regime stability in the Middle East. Taking an international relations perspective, the book not only examines the evolving regional balance, but also explores the link between external and internal politics and the implications of terrorism for regional security. The chapters also address the implications of the Arab Spring for Israel and its chances of existing peacefully in the region. This volume will be of much interest to students of Middle East politics, international security, foreign policy and international relations.

India's foreign policy toward Israel is a subject of deep dispute. Throughout the twentieth century arguments have raged over the Palestinian problem and the future of bilateral relations. Yet no text comprehensively looks at the attitudes and policies of India toward Israel, especially their development in conjunction with history. P. R. Kumaraswamy is the first to account for India's Israel policy, revealing surprising inconsistencies in positions taken by the country's leaders, such as Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, and tracing the crackling tensions between its professed values and realpolitik. Kumaraswamy's findings debunk the belief that India possesses a homogenous policy toward the Middle East. In fact, since the early days of independence, many within India have supported and pursued relations with Israel. Using material derived from archives in both India and Israel, Kumaraswamy investigates the factors that have hindered relations between these two countries despite their numerous commonalities. He also considers how India destabilized relations, the actions that were necessary for normalization to occur, and the directions bilateral relations may take in the future. In his most provocative argument, Kumaraswamy underscores the disproportionate affect of anticolonial sentiments and the Muslim minority on shaping Indian policy.

THE JOURNEY TO ATLANTICA Aztlantica is the spiritual homeland of the Meso-America Quetzalcatl Prophecy. The Journey attempts to bring forth new insights, hidden history, and a future in peril. The Journey to Aztlantica is a call for awakening and the need to transition from an old degenrating world to the promise of a sustainable a new world that will be able to survive the perials of the future . The Journey expresses concern about the degenerating trajectory of capitalistic economic and political systems. About their questionable influence on the future stabilities of world societies and governments. The old-world economic worldview has reached it's limitation. It is on the path of regression and is condusive to social dis-integration. This book alludes to the need for individuals to prepare themselves to confront and survive the calamities of climatic change and man-made calamities of the future. The Journey calls for human evolution. For the building of an alternative economic system as a way to change the human character and behavior. A system that would support the principles of natural human evolution, a more equalitarian society and would support the development of a humanitarian worldview. The Journey proposes the establishment of new social, cultural, educational and spiritual models. It calls for establishing a philosophical model based on a respectful and balanced relationship with the natural environment and within the human community. The Journey proposes a new spiritual movement for the new world, an organized religion that would be compatible with the new worldview of Aztlantica. The old religions are an integral part of a degenerating old world. Aztlantica calls for the refinement and rejuvenation of human cultures in order to promote respect, peace, balance, and harmony around the world. The Journey stresses the need to crossover to a new worldview reality, the circular worldview. In order for humanity to survive adequately in a perialous future and in order to create a sustainable world in which the human community can live, prosper and advance: individuals must first transform themselves before they can transform into the future.

The upheaval in oil prices in the early 1970s gave rise to major changes in inter-Arab relations. While the oil-producing countries became rich and their citizens enjoyed one of the highest standards of living in the world, the Arab World's cultural and historical leader, Egypt, was enmeshed in an economic morass, barely managing to finance the import of foodstuffs for her population and at the forefront of the Arab confrontation with Israel. The author provides a unique insight into a virtually unseen current that has shaped Middle East war and politics for over 30 years by explaining the intricate and ever shifting relationship between Egypt and the immensely wealthy Arab Gulf newcomers. The efforts of the Gulf states to exert political and cultural influence over Egypt through use of their oil revenues is described in detail, alongside concurrent Egyptian efforts to redistribute the oil wealth while maintaining complete policy independence and primacy. Drawing on previously unpublished reports, and on first-hand interviews with key persons throughout the region (including two Egyptian premiers), the book provides a first-time look at the full extent of the economic ties, at the inner workings of the relations, and at their long-term impact. New data and analysis shows the underlying logic and impact of this relationship, and the powerful interplay and the shifting balance of power. The book analyzes the effects economic aid and cooperation had on the political relationship between the two sides and on President Sadat's peace initiative with Israel. It provides a wealth of new data and original and insightful analysis, and fills an important gap in our understanding of the inner economic workings of the modern Arab world.

The aim of the boycott, motivated by historical enmity for Judaism, was to block the development of the Jewish state. Its extension to third parties doing business with Israel and to Jews, defined as "sympathizers with Israel, " has led to an infusion of antisemitism into business practices in many countries. Since the oil crisis of 1973, and the banking scandal of 1975 in which Jewish-owned banks in France and England were excluded from participation in international loan syndications, the USA has taken measures, including legislation, against the boycott, followed by France, Canada, the Netherlands, and Norway. The support of Saudi Arabia and the weakness of many governments ensures, however, that the boycott will continue.
