The Enemy of My Enemy: The Alarming Convergence of Militant Islam and the Extreme Right (review)

The Enemy of My Enemy: The Alarming Convergence of Militant Islam and the Extreme Right (review) was installed in 1981, the notion of using architecture to understand political issues as constructed realities is somewhat confusing in this case. Architecture implies forethought, a precise plan, and its implementation. If those processes did not govern the settlement project before 1981, by which point its main contours were established, than something else must have been at work. I would suggest it was the historical logic of Zionism as a colonial settlement project from its inception. As Dalia Karpel's recent film The Diaries of Yossef Nachmani makes clear, settling everywhere it was possible to do so and using all legal and often illegal tools to do it was the life blood of labor Zionism in the pre-State period. After the 1967 war, elements of the labor Zionist movement (primarily le-Ahdut Ha-`Avodah) and the youth of the National Religious Party renewed the settlement drive. In the post-1967 atmosphere of triumphalism, settling in whatever territories became available was a foregone conclusion. Another point of unclarity in the book is the inclusion of a chapter on the Bar-Lev line. Israel's Chief-of-Staff Chaim Bar-Lev conceived and supervised the construction of a heavily fortified fixed defensive structure on the west bank of the Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies Purdue University Press
