dan freeman-maloy on israeli state power and its presentation to the west

Dan Freeman-Maloy, ‘Israeli state power and its liberal alibis’, Race & Class 52, 3 (2011).

This article explores the tension between Israeli state power and its presentation to the West in ostensibly liberal terms. The historical dynamics of metropolitan sponsorship of Zionist settler colonialism are briefly discussed before focusing on the ways in which the politics of artificial demographic management and pan-Jewish entitlement to Palestine are twisted into a conception of Jewish national self-determination that serves as a liberal licence for Israeli state crimes.
