Article 695: Bias Free, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict


Article 695: Bias Free Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Hasan Yahya, Dp.Ph.ds, Sociologist and Historian

Arab American Encyclopedia-AAE

Let me repeat the title here in different form, “Can we write on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict as Arab intellectuals Wihout bias?” In other words, can a Palestinian or Arab thinker or philosopher be neutral in writing about the Arab-Israel dispute over Palestine. In my belief, researchers and scientist including the well known professor Edward Said (in his orientalism) and professor Abu Lughud (articles on Palestine transformation)and many others including this writer (in some of his articles) have written on the topic but mostly taking sides. In my opinion, to think philosophically about the topic we have to study history of state creation in general through history with high validity and reliability of facts about the nature of establishing ethnic or ethical societies or political intities called states. This approach may be close to be neutral in bring historical facts through philosophical interpretation.

Arab Palestinians and Jews sociological Analysis

It is a fact that it is difficult to write about Israel neutrally without bias from a Palestinian Arab writers. Or from those who have affiliation ethnically or ethically as anti or pro Israel. However, searching for only the truth from philosophical facts, evidences and view of creating states in history may be easier to researchers  who seeks unbiased opinion. Therefore, let us set some facts about Israel, or about the development of Israeli Palestinian dispute over land.

  1. The creation of Israel was      made at least as an idea through British-French agreement after the defeat      of Othman Empire, this agreement was called SykesPicot agreement 1917.
  2. Jews (small number of      communities were in fact on the land of Palestine when this agreement was      made.
  3. The Arabs where included      in the defeated party even though were sharing the British and French      ambition to be isolated from the Othoman Empire, and were looking for      indepency as new states.
  4. Britain authorities      according to administrative ideologies (as pro Zionist or pr Arabs)      support or reject Jews in their dreams to have separate intities as      states.
  5. Supporters of Israel and      Zionism as a movement, were eager to send Jews anywhere on earth, rather      than keeping them in Europe and Russia, or elsewhere and gather them in a      state, later called Israel.
  6. According to Ibn Khaldun,      the pineer of this topic six centuries ago, did not describe creation of states      or collectivities from right or wrong side, because change is the ultimate      description for rise and decline of nations or states.
  7. The creation of Israel in      new environment, described by some as hostile environment, which I      disagree, because Jews were living peacefully in Palestine under Othoman      Empire like arminian, Druze,Christians,as well as Arab Muslims  groups.
  8. As a new state established      on 1948, or an idea to be accomplished, Zionism or Israeli politicians      know well the factors pushing toward creation of a state, with elements of      survival like any new state creation in history. Here, we should not      consider who was right and who was wrong, or using measures of human      rights or application of justice measures, instead, we have to apply the      elements for survival used and built by the new state in history in      general and creation of Israeli state on part of the Palestinian land in      Particular.
  9. From the above, we can      say, that Israel as a new state created in different environment (from      Europe, Soviet Union and elsewhere)has obligation toward its people. This      obligation is equal to any new state obligation toward its people. The      Israeli state, however, was a unique stutation in terms of minority      struggle through history, but unfortunately it was incited by ethnic and      ethical religious roots and historical sources, which is in my opinion are      open to critical analysis.
  10. As any other state, Israel      was and still a minority in the region, taking into consideration      population growth among Palestinians and Arabs. A minority armed with top      of the art technology to defend itself and its people first, to secure its      ambition to survive second, and third, to postpone its existence in terms      of rise and decline of nations or states.
  11. In this regard, what the Israeli      state was and continue to do, especially since its creation as a state in      1948 in general, and  the start of      third millinioum in particulat was to achieve the goals or what we called      in the previous item (defence, security, survival).
  12. On these grounds, and may      be others to come, any agreement to solve the one century old dispute is      to secure these ambitions for both Arab Palestinian and Jews, to stop      hostities and wars, and start a new era of peace.

image007In conclusion, any state, in any time, or place, have certain basic and fundamental elements (theoretically and methodologically)  to live long or short, and survive, as far as these fundamental elements   are protected. Israel as a state does’t differ much from any other state in history. Therefore, its security and fear from vanishing are important for it like any other state on world history. Arab Palestinian and Palestinian-Israeli Jews have to recognize the above philosophical ground analysis to cope with events, which I believe is not crusial, such as settlements, borders, and exchanging land. We have also to look to an important factor in this regard, the power of survival which should lead both Arab Palestinian and Israelis to think seriously to live together in peace, for long or short time to come in terms of historical facts on state rise and decline.

The above elements applied for the Israeli state may be applied as opposite. Palestinians according to the  philosophical analysis of history may be applied equally in this article taking into consideration the power level and struggle as defending or attacking the other side in the security and survival of the state and people argument. (1061 words) AAE.
