The State of Israel and Jerusalem in the Jewish-Christian dialogue: a monologue in two voices

By: Prior, Michael, 1942-2004.
Material type: materialTypeLabelArticleSubject(s): Christianity and other religions -- Judaism -- 1945- | Jewish-Arab relations | Judaism -- Relations -- Christianity -- 1945- | Israel In: Holy Land studies Vol. 3, no. 2 (November 2004), pp. 145-170Abstract: "Focusing on the centrality of the State of Israel within the Jewish-Christian dialogue as it is actually conducted, this essay highlights the challenge that historical truths pose for participants. Through analysis of texts over several decades, it reveals aspects of the discourse which reflect vested political interests, a certain myopia with respect to historical facts, and a lack of moral engagement with realities. One discerns a culture of denial or evasion with respect to, e.g., the expulsion of (80 per cent) of the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine. On such issues one encounters a monologue, albeit in two voices. There is a better way forward" -- Journal's abstract.
