Zionism and the Arabs : An American Jewish Dilemma, 1898-1948, Hardback Book

Zionism and the Arabs : An American Jewish Dilemma, 1898-1948 Hardback


How have American Zionists maintained the delicate balance between their Americanism and their Zionism?

How did they, as Americans, support the principle of democracy and at the same time, as Jews, support the creation of a Jewish homeland despite the pre-1948 Arab majority in Palestine?

Looking at America-Holy Land relations during the years prior to the establishment of the state of Israel, Medoff explores this crucial question of American Jewish identity.

Using original, previously unpublished archival material, this study presents an engaging account of a dilemma that is still very much an issue in today's political climate.
