Based on Sara Roy’s extensive fieldwork in the Gaza Strip and West Bank during the critical period of the Oslo peace process, Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza shows how the social service activities sponsored by the Islamist group emphasized not political violence but rather community development and civic restoration.Roy demonstrates how Islamic social institutions in Gaza and the West Bank advocated a moderate approach to change that valued order and stability, not disorder and instability; were less dogmatically Islamic than is often assumed; and served people who had a range of political outlooks and no history of acting collectively in support of radical Islam. These institutions attempted to create civic communities, not religious congregations. They reflected a deep commitment to stimulate a social, cultural, and moral renewal of the Muslim community, one couched not only–or even primarily–in religious terms.Vividly illustrating Hamas’s unrecognized potential for moderation, accommodation, and change, Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza also traces critical developments in Hamas’s social and political sectors through the Second Intifada to today, and offers an assessment of the current, more adverse situation in the occupied territories. The Oslo period held great promise that has since been squandered. This book argues for more enlightened policies by the United States and Israel, ones that reflect Hamas’s proven record of nonviolent community building.
Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land (2014)
by Donald E. Wagner and Walter T. DAvis, editorsA critical examination of political Zionism, a topic often considered taboo in the West, is long overdue. Moreover, the discussion of Christian Zionism is usually confined to Evangelical and fundamentalist settings. The present volume will break the silence currently reigning in many religious, political, and academic circles and, in so doing, will provoke and inspire a new, challenging conversation on theological and ethical issues arising from various aspects of Zionism–a conversation that is vital to the quest for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. The eight authors offer a rich diversity of religious faith, academic research, and practical experience, as they represent all three Abrahamic faiths and five different Christian traditions.
The Bible and the Palestine Israel Conflict (2015)
Edited By: Naim Ateek, Cedar Duaybis, & Tina Whitehead
This book is a compilation of presentations and papers from the Sabeel 9th International Conference in Jerusalem. From sermons and Bible studies to presentations by international law experts, this conference addressed the many ways in which the Bible is used and abused in the Holy Land and in the context of the occupation of Palestine. While Sabeel believes that the solution to the conflict must be based on international law, the papers included in this volume reveal how the biblical concepts of justice and peace can be drawn upon for the achievement of a just and durable resolution.
There has been considerable research and writing done on English, American and German Christian Zionism, but there is a paucity of serious and substantive writing and research on Canadian Christian Zionism. This prier of sorts on Canadian Christian Zionism touches on the 19th century origins, 20th century development and 21st century expressions of Canadian Christian Zionism. A Tangled Tale also reflects on the relationship between Canadian Christian Zionism, politics, the Canadian Conservative Party and the impact on the Palestinians.

What role have Zionism and Christian Zionism played in shaping attitudes and driving historical developments in the Middle East and around the world? How do Christians, Jews, and Muslims understand the competing claims to the land of Palestine and Israel? What steps can be taken to bring peace, reconciliation, and justice to the homeland that Palestinians and Israelis share?Zionism Unsettled embraces these critical issues fearlessly and with inspiring scope. The booklet and companion DVD draw together compelling and diverse viewpoints from Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Israel, Palestine, the US, and around the globe. By contrasting mainstream perceptions with important alternative perspectives frequently ignored in the media, Zionism Unsettled is an invaluable guide to deeper understanding.
