Book Description

5 Feb 2013

In this follow up to the acclaimed Multiculturalism: Some Inconvenient Truths Rumy Hasan examines a little explored but extremely important issue that has profound global implications

A fresh look at the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, as it is shaped to become the iconic clash between a colonizing, aggressive Zionism and the Islamic states and cultures which surround it – a timely, broad-based and rich analysis of the civilizational conflict affecting people the world over, from the ‘War on Terror’ to the complications of a multicultural Europe. A highly-recommended, fascinating and rewarding read on a little understood aspect of modern politics
Prof Haim Bresheeth, SOAS, University of London

A signpost to realities about the clash between Islamism and Zionism, Rumy Hasan’s Dangerous Liaisons is important reading for those of us, reflecting on the chilling prospect of senior Israeli figures contemplating – a vital word – launching a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities, with incalculable consequences
Tam Dalyell, MP West Lothian 1962-2005; Father of the House of Commons 2001-2005

A riveting tale, full of irony, and told in a true story-teller’s way
Terry Jones, writer, director, and Python

Rumy Hasan’s thorough analysis of the tensions between Islamism and Zionism is very welcome and should be widely circulated. It should be compulsory reading for our political leaders who seem to have no idea just how dangerous is their policy of unconditional support for Israel
Baroness Jenny Tonge

5.0 out of 5 stars Gloves-off Critique of Two Pernicious Ideologies 30 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
This book is unusual in several ways. First: the Israel/Palestine conflict tends to be studied in isolation and not to be related too much to the wider Middle East. Rumy Hasan presents the clash in terms of the region and Israel's complex association with both Shia and Sunni Islamic states. And he takes the issue even wider, analysing it in terms of the conflict in the West between Zionists and Islamists.

Second: the conflict has tended to be analysed mainly in political/national terms. But the composition of the new Israeli government - of which the veteran Israeli dissident Uri Avnery has written: "the settlers are in control of the State" - shows that the pernicious mix between religion and politics now dominates Israel; and the corruption and collaboration of Fatah mean that Hamas is now seen as the main leadership of the Palestinians. So the Israel/Palestine clash has become one of religious/political ideologies.

Those who have seen the clash in religious terms tend either, in the case of hard-line Zionists, to regard Israel as a bastion of Western Judaeo-Christian values against Islam - Samuel Huntingdon's "clash of civilisations" - or, in the case of many Muslims, as part of a Judaeo-Christian crusade against all Muslims. Hasan shows that the clash is not between the Judaeo-Christian West and Islam but between these two modern religious/political ideologies, which have so much in common with each other and indeed feed off each other and need each other. This is a third unusual feature of this book: that, unlike many critics of Israel, Hasan combines a powerful critique of Zionism with an equally powerful critique of Islamism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 May 2013
An excellent account of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict that includes details of the start of Zionism and its relationship to Islamism (both Shia and Sunni).
Highly recommended reading.
