Palestine in the Zionist space

On the authority of “Dal” Publishing and Arts in Damascus, the book “Palestine in the Zionist Space” was recently published by the Palestinian-Syrian translator, Mahmoud Al-Sabbagh, containing between its pages 11 articles and studies that were translated from the English language, some of which were originally written in Hebrew, between 1992 and 2014, i.e. during the period of the two contemporary Palestinian uprisings, and after the “Arab Spring” era. This, according to the publisher, has great significance, as the first Palestinian Intifada has always constituted a strong shock that shook Israeli society vertically, and the question of “existential anxiety” about the future of the state has become a powerful question. The Israeli need to review Zionist literature has become an urgent necessity to enter the post-Zionist era, in addition to attempts to “history” Zionist political activity in the pre-state period, as the mechanisms and means used by the Zionist movement to control Palestine, since the end of the ninth century, have ceased to exist. Ten, within the general European colonial context, as well as practical steps to build a Jewish “nation” and a national “home” for this nation, are sufficient to explain the current Israeli society… In addition, the Judaization project was the main feature of the state that was established in 1948. For this, a set of racist solutions are similar to many of the settlement experiences in different regions of the world, although the Zionist project has its own distinctive characteristics.
The articles of the book highlight the ways that Zionism has pursued to build a “Jewish nation-state in the Western style”, through a wide and diverse spectrum of approaches, modern theories and hypotheses in political sociology, and post-colonial studies, to define the racist, settler nature of the Zionist movement, and the “national” state it created. , including nationally and religiously centered “ethnic” categories, immigration, expulsion and settlement policies and current post-Zionist political and neoliberal economic structures contribute to the “erosion” of the differences between the “right” and “left” in Israel.
Al-Sabbagh says about the difficulties he faced in translating the articles of his book: The most important of them is that I do not know the original language in which most of the articles were written, i.e. Hebrew. On the other hand, some articles I had worked on before I left Syria in 2013, and had to re-work after moving to Sweden, which undoubtedly affected the method of transmission and translation in line with my new personal reality and the objective general reality. My world was limited to a personal computer, nothing more, nothing less, while in Syria I was able to enrich what I translated, whether by providing it with some notes from my personal library, or by discussing what I translate with many friends, which helps in choosing the appropriate mental sentence that I want to translate. It is suitable for the Arab reader without prejudice to the intentions of the original author of the text.
Al-Sabbagh adds that this book falls within a general framework that has become a clear landmark of Palestinian culture since the days of the martyr Ghassan Kanafani, and it introduces the Arab reader to what is going on within Israeli society. He points out that the articles he translated talk about Israeli society in terms of its own problems, solutions and methods of treatment, and then their reflection on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
