Islam and politics in the modern Middle East by Metin Heper ( Book )
13 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The recent resurgence of Islam in the Middle East is a far more complex phenomenon than is often suggested by those analyses which reduce recent developments in the area to no more than an intensification of religiosity. Islam and Politics in the Modern Middle East challenges that perception of the contemporary Middle East. It explores the nature of the Islamic revival and attempts to establish the original impulse behind particular instances of Islamic resurgence. It also examines the degree to which religious institutions have served as a mechanism for expressing secular dema

Green crescent over Nazareth : the displacement of Christians by Muslims in the Holy Land by Raphael Israeli ( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Green Crescent over Nazareth is the story of the cultural and political struggle between Christians and Muslims, and of the rapid Islamization of Nazareth - the birthplace of Christianity - ironically, under the rule of the Jewish State of Israel. Until the creation of Israel in 1948, Christians formed the majority in the township of Nazareth. However, as Muslim refugees fled adjoining villages for the safety of the city during Israel's War of Independence, the demographic balance began to shift. The higher birthrate among the less educated and poorer Muslim population and the rapid exodus of outnumbered and frustrated Christians quickened the pace of change

'Are they really Muslims?'

The Islamic challenge in Europe by Raphael Israeli ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since the World Trade Center attacks in New York on September 11, 2001, Europe has been plagued by Islamist attacks that have taken many lives and disrupted many services. Considerable attention has been paid to radical Islamist attacks on the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, but far less focus has been on the Islamist extremist impact on the rest of Europe. This book warns all Europeans, but Middle Easterners as well, that they are not immune to terror. That terror is confined to Jews and Israel is a myth. Muslim extremist attacks have taken place against other Muslim nations - as well as European nations in which Jewish influence or Israeli support is negligible. The waves of Muslim recrimination against the West have given rise to internal struggles within the Arab world played out in terrorist acts." "Muslim brotherhoods have defined a global war against other religions, nations, and cultures that stray from the principles of fundamentalism - a cultural and military jihad. Just where religious identity supervenes national identity has become a critical turning point. Israeli's book shows that the line between moderates and extremists within the Islamic fold is vague, ambiguous, and in certain situations non-existent. It draws attention to polls and public sentiments of the Islamic faithful, and emphasizes the Islamic attack on modernization and its cultural sources." "This timely volume is addressed to those in the West who are not accustomed to thinking in apocalyptic terms. Israeli provides painstaking details of European responses to Islamist challenges, particularly those who prefer pragmatic compliance rather than response. He demonstrates that Islamic extremism continues to grow in the heartland of the European world. This is neither an optimistic nor pessimistic book; its disturbing message may be a wake-up call to some. It is a necessary read for those who want to go beyond news, opting for a more intellectual and comprehensive diet."--BOOK JACKET
War, peace and terror in the Middle East by Raphael Israeli ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume focuses on the theme of how acts of terrorism have eroded the hopes inherent in the peace process that was initiated by Sadat and Begin in 1977, and driven it to an impasse. All efforts to duplicate that feat have ended in frustration thus far, and the current crisis occasioned by recent acts of terrorism and al-Qai'da may lead to a new strategic thinking and reshuffling allegiances and alliances, and produce a new world order."--BOOK JACKET

Muslim minorities in modern states : the challenge of assimilation by Raphael Israeli ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Political leaders of the 1930s may be accused of blindness to danger in their failed attempts to appease totalitarian aggression, but no one doubts they believed they were doing so to preserve their way of life. In contrast, Raphael Israeli suggests that twenty-first century appeasement of Islamists, wherever it occurs, is different." "This study fills a large void in the examination of the consequences of new migrations of Muslim populations into advanced and modern societies throughout the world."--BOOK JACKET

Muslim anti-Semitism in Christian Europe : elemental and residual anti-semitism by Raphael Israeli ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Modern Arab and Muslim hostility towards Jews and Israel is rooted not only in the Arab-Israeli conflict and traditional Islamic teaching but also in Christian anti-Semitic attitudes brought into the Islamic world by Western colonial powers. In this volume, Raphael Israeli examines how the worsening situation in the Middle East together with large waves of Muslim immigration to Europe, North America, and Australia has brought about a comingling of two anti-Semitic traditions. As the author explains, the unique interaction of Muslim immigrants in the West with the host societies brought them into contact with local, traditional anti- Semites of the xenophobic fascist and racist Right along with the avowedly anti-Zionist Left, to build a formidable wall of hatred against the Jewish state and its people. To complicate this picture further, the same Muslim immigrants share with them minority status in a Christian-majority society. Often finding themselves at odds with the majority host society, they find themselves subject to criticism and censure on all sides. They are engaged simultaneously in battle with both their host society into which they cannot integrate, and their Jewish compatriots who are a model of good integration. Consequently, they feel exposed and lose ground in the struggle for social acceptance. Israeli lays out the nature and ideologies of the Muslim immigrant world and shows how in each European country they create their own ethnic sub-groups and religious communities, often in competition with each other. This remarkable and courageous book will be of interest to sociologists, Middle East specialists, and political scientists."--Jacket
