About this title Synopsis: Political economist Bernard Avishai has been writing and thinking about Israel since moving there to volunteer during the War. Last, but not least, the vast majority of secular Israeli Jews have also been victimized by the fusion of politics and religion. Avishai proposes the Hebrew Republic as a panacea for all that ails modern Israel.
Israel would keep its national symbols but supplement them with others so that Arab citizens could more strongly identify with the state. Religion and politics would be separated as state support for rabbinical institutions ceases.
Book Review | 'The Hebrew Republic,' by Bernard Avishai - The New York Times
Lastly, the new Israel would eventually be federated with Palestine and Jordan. A case in point involves the proposed separation of religion and politics. Likewise, Avishai seriously underestimates the emotional attachment of disparate ethnic groups to their own distinct national symbols. Unfortunately, as Avishai himself acknowledges, economic entrepreneurs are not in charge of negotiating peace.
That is the responsibility of political leaders who have failed to break the bloody cycle of Israeli-Arab violence in recent years. Like Theodor Herzl, whose book Der Judenstaat The Jewish State undoubtedly inspired the title of this volume, Avishai is a bold and thoughtful visionary.
Israel should be a ‘Hebrew republic,’ Avishai says
Unfortunately, visionaries tend to be excessively optimistic, because they hope to see their dreams come true. But visionaries highlight the need for change and open the minds of political leaders to new possibilities that are not easily imaginable under the currently harsh circumstances. For that, we owe Avishai a deep debt of gratitude.
