9781611680393: Israel, Jordan, and Palestine: The Two-State Imperative (Middle East Studies)

Since 1921, the Zionist movement, the Hashemites, and Palestinian nationalists have been vying for regional control. In this book, Asher Susser analyzes the evolution of the one- and two-state options and explores why a two-state solution has failed to materialize. He provides an in-depth analysis of Jordan’s positions and presents an updated discussion of the two-state imperative through the initiatives of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Susser argues that Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians have cohesive collective identities that violently collide with each other. Because of these entrenched differences, a single-state solution cannot be achieved.

About the Author:

Professor ASHER SUSSER is the Stanley and Ilene Gold Senior Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University. He was the Director of the Center for twelve years and has taught for thirty years in the University’s Department of Middle Eastern History.

Review:

“In his latest book, Israel, Jordan, and Palestine: The Two-State Imperative, he tackles the notion of the two-state model and its relevance today. . . . Susser makes it clear that this model of coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians is far from perfect. Moreover, he underscores that the notion of ‘land for peace’ that grew out of the 1967 UN Security Council Resolution 242 was intended for state actors like Egypt, Syria and Jordan, not the Palestinian state-to-be. This is a critical point as many outside pro-Palestinian observers of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict like to argue that the concept also applies to them. This despite the fact that today even that is a farce, as most Palestinians have deviated from the two-state model in favor of a one-state solution – a Palestinian state that would replace Israel.”—Thecuttingedgenews.com

“Despite its complexity, the book is rather accessible and will be an excellent resource for those looking to understand the challenges facing Palestinian statehood and the reasons for those challenges. Susser’s insightful review will be of great interest to a broad audience, from general readers to experts in the field. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice

“All these contributions are geared to convince the reader that Israeli politics have rendered the two-state solution obsolete. But to what extent is this claim valid? . . . Susser argues, quite effectively, that it is an illusion to view civic nationalism, as opposed to the ethno-nationalism of Israel and Palestine respectively, as more benign or free of ethno-nationalist associations.”—Middle Eastern Studies

“Susser certainly makes a convincing case that the one-state idea is a goal that lacks any plausible method of achievement. . . . It reminds us that however unlikely a two-state solution to the conflict appears at the present, no one else has really been able to propose a realistic alternative.”—The Middle East Journal
