Netanyahu Finally Has the President He Wants. History Suggests There Will Still Be Problems.

Feinman The latest flap between the United States government and the Israeli government, at the end of the Obama Administration, over the United Nations resolution about Israeli settlements on the West Bank is nothing really new, as the relationship between Israel and the United States has always been fraught with controversy and tension, no matter who is the leader of Israel and who is President of the United States. The United States has always ensured the survival of Israel, but the two governments have regularly disagreed about tactics, strategy and policy, and this will continue into the future, assuredly. We will see what transpires after President Donald Trump, who has committed himself to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian question, finishes his visit to Israel and Saudi Arabia, and after his talks with the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas which took place in May at the White House.

Teaching the History of the Israeli-Arab Conflict in Israel

Since history manuals are regarded as having an important role in the formation of national memory and hence of national identity, their content is prone to external pressure of politicians and social groups more than other kinds of school manuals. However, other factors also influence these manuals, notably developments within the discipline of history and pedagogical novelties. Israel is no exception to those rules.

Theconversation. President Donald Trump has effectively abandoned long-standing US policy on how to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.


Appearing alongside visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week, Trump said: Looking at two-state or one-state [solutions], I like the one that both parties like. I’m very happy with the one both parties like. I can live with either one. Trump’s statement caused grave concern, particularly for Palestinians. The intent and meaning of Trump’s statement ought to be of great interest to Australians this week.

Australia’s prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, this week rejected the orthodox position that Israel is in violation of international law in Palestine. Turnbull’s repetition of Australia’s commitment to a two-state solution appears hollow in light of his government’s uncritical welcome of Netanyahu. But what would single and two-state solutions look like? What is a one-state solution? Such a solution would effectively be an apartheid state.

This event is not part of the national Israeli calendar. It is mentioned only in passing as a “bad apple” in the national story. As far as Palestinian Israelis are concerned, the massacre, the impunity enjoyed by its perpetrators and the Israeli state’s failure to go beyond cynical gestures and officially recognise it as a crime have left a gaping wound in Jewish-Palestinian relations.
