  • Metaphysics of the Profane: The Political Theology of Walter Benjamin and Gershom Scholem

    Karton Kapak
    Walter Benjamin and Gershom Scholem are regarded as two of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the twentieth century. Together they produced a dynamic body of ideas that has had a lasting impact on the study of religion, philosophy, and literary criticism.Drawing from Benjamin's and Scholem's ideas on messianism, language, and divine justice, this book traces the intellectual exchange through the early decades of the twentieth century -- from Berlin, Bern, and Munich in the throws of war and revolution to Scholem's departure for Palestine in 1923. It begins with a close reading of Benjamin's early writings and a study of Scholem's theological politics, followed by an examination of Benjamin's proposals on language and the influence these ideas had on Scholem's scholarship on Jewish mysticism. From there the book turns to their ideas on divine justice -- from Benjamin's critique of original sin and violence to Scholem's application of the categories to the prophets and Bolshevism. Metaphysics of the Profane is the first book to make this early period available to a wider audience, revealing the intricate structure of this early intellectual partnership on politics and theology.

  • Environment in Jewish Law: Essays and Responsa (Studies in Progressive Halakhah, 12)

    Karton Kapak
    Environmental concerns are at the top of the agenda around the world. Judaism, like the other world religions, only rarely raised issues concerning the environment in the past. This means that modern Judaism, the halakhic tradition no less than others, must build on a slim foundation in its efforts to give guidance. The essays in this volume mark the beginning of a new effort to face questions -- and formulate answers -- of vital importance.

  • Jews and Blacks in the Early Modern World

    Karton Kapak
    Going beyond inter-ethnic polemics, this book describes the ways Jews imagined and treated Blacks during the first three centuries of the Atlantic slave trade and European colonialism. Jonathan Schorsch uses many previously unexamined sources to reveal the scope of Jewish anti-Blackness in Portugal, the Ottoman Empire, Italy, Amsterdam and the Caribbean. His study concludes that Jewish attitudes and behavior remained barely distinguishable from general European trends, less intense, although hardly benign.

  • The Myths of Liberal Zionism

    Sert Kapak
    Yitzhak Laor is one of Israel’s most prominent dissidents and poets, a latter-day Spinoza who helps keep alive the critical tradition within Jewish culture. In this work he fearlessly dissects the complex attitudes of Western European liberal Left intellectuals toward Israel, Zionism and the “Israeli peace camp.” He argues that through a prism of famous writers like Amos Oz, David Grossman and A.B. Yehoshua, the peace camp has now adopted the European vision of “new Zionism,” promoting the fierce Israeli desire to be accepted as part of the West and taking advantage of growing Islamophobia across Europe.The backdrop to this uneasy relationship is the ever-present shadow of the Holocaust. Laor is merciless as he strips bare the hypocrisies and unarticulated fantasies that lie beneath the love-affair between “liberal Zionists” and their European supporters.

  • Oral World and Written Word: Ancient Israelite Literature (Library of Ancient Israel)

    Sert Kapak
    The historical and literary questions about ancient Israel that traditionally have preoccupied biblical scholars often have overlooked the social realities of life experienced by the vast majority of the population of ancient Israel. Volumes in the Library of Ancient Israel draw on multiple disciplines -- such as archaeology, anthropology, sociology, and literary criticism -- to illumine the everyday realities and social subtleties these ancient cultures experienced. This series employs sophisticated methods resulting in original contributions that depict the reality of the people behind the Hebrew Bible and interprets these scholarly insights for a wide variety of readers. Individually and collectively, these books will expand our vision of the culture and society of ancient Israel, thereby generating new appreciation for its impact up to the present.

  • Jewish Thought and Scientific Discovery in Early Modern Europe

    Sert Kapak
    The late-16th to the late-18th century is seen as an extension of the Jewish Middle Age, when the Jewish world was cut off from Christian intellectual advances. The author argues that Jewish culture and society was then in fact increasingly aware of medical and scientific advances.

  • Palestine Betrayed

    Sert Kapak
    The 1947 UN resolution to partition Palestine irrevocably changed the political landscape of the Middle East, giving rise to six full-fledged wars between Arabs and Jews, countless armed clashes, blockades, and terrorism, as well as a profound shattering of Palestinian Arab society. Its origins, and that of the wider Arab-Israeli conflict, are deeply rooted in Jewish-Arab confrontation and appropriation in Palestine. But the isolated occasions of violence during the British Mandate era (1920–48) suggest that the majority of Palestinian Arabs yearned to live and thrive under peaceful coexistence with the evolving Jewish national enterprise. So what was the real cause of the breakdown in relations between the two communities?In this brave and groundbreaking book, Efraim Karsh tells the story from both the Arab and Jewish perspectives. He argues that from the early 1920s onward, a corrupt and extremist leadership worked toward eliminating the Jewish national revival and protecting its own interests. Karsh has mined many of the Western, Soviet, UN, and Israeli documents declassified over the past decade, as well as unfamiliar Arab sources, to reveal what happened behind the scenes on both Palestinian and Jewish sides. It is an arresting story of delicate political and diplomatic maneuvering by leading figures—Ben Gurion, Hajj Amin Husseini, Abdel Rahman Azzam, King Abdullah, Bevin, and Truman —over the years leading up to partition, through the slide to war and its enduring consequences. Palestine Betrayed is vital reading for understanding the origin of disputes that remain crucial today.

  • Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint (European Perspectives: A Series in Social Thought and Cultural Criticism)

    Karton Kapak
    Who can say "I am Jewish?" What does "Jew" mean? What especially does it mean for Jacques Derrida, founder of deconstruction, scoffer at boundaries and fixed identities, explorer of the indeterminate and undecidable? In Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint, French feminist philosopher Hélène Cixous follows the intertwined threads of Jewishness and non-Jewishness that play through the life and works of one of the greatest living philosophers.Cixous is a lifelong friend of Derrida. They both grew up as French Jews in Algeria and share a "belonging constituted of exclusion and nonbelonging" -- not Algerian, rejected by France, their Jewishness concealed or acculturated. In Derrida's family "one never said 'circumcision'but 'baptism,'not 'Bar Mitzvah'but 'communion.'" Judaism cloaked in Catholicism is one example of the undecidability of identity that influenced the thinker whom Cixous calls a "Jewish Saint."An intellectual contemporary of Derrida, Cixous's ideas on writing have an affinity with his philosophy of deconstruction, which sought to overturn binary oppositions -- such as man/woman, or Jew/non-Jew -- and blur boundaries of exclusion inherent in Western thought. In portraying Derrida, Cixous uses metonymy, alliteration, rhyme, neologisms, and puns to keep the text in constant motion, freeing language from any rigidity of meaning. In this way she writes a portrait of "Derrida in flight," slipping from one appearance to the next, unable to be fixed in one spot, yet encompassing each point he passes. From the circumcision act to family relationships, through Derrida's works to those of Celan, Rousseau, and Beaumarchais, Cixous effortlessly merges biography and textual commentary in this playful portrait of the man, his works, and being (or not being) Jewish.

  • From Epic to Canon: History and Literature in Ancient Israel

    Karton Kapak
    In From Epic to Canon, Frank Moore Cross discusses specific issues that illuminate central questions about the Hebrew Bible and those who created and preserved it. He challenges the persistent attempt to read Protestant theological polemic against law into ancient Israel. Cross uncovers the continuities between the institutions of kinship and of covenant, which he describes as "extended kinship." He examines the social structures of ancient Israel and reveals that beneath its later social and cultural accretions, the concept of covenant—as opposed to codified law—was a vital part of Israel's earliest institutions. He then draws parallels between the expression of kinship and covenant among the Israelites and that practiced by other ancient societies, as well as in primitive societies.

  • Israel in Gefahr: Der nächste Schachzug des Islam gegen die Juden

    Karton Kapak
    Seit Jahrzehnten versuchen maßgebliche Staaten, allen voran die USA, das Nahost-Problem zu lösen. Entscheidend dabei ist der Konflikt zwischen der islamischen Welt und Israel, was auch in der Haltung des Iran deutlich wird – denn von Israel sind weder Iraner noch Schiiten betroffen. Die eigentliche Ursache liegt in der Lehre des Islam, was der Autor durch zahlreiche Quellen belegt. Mark A. Gabriel ist Ägypter, dort aufgewachsen und war Moslem. Er studierte und lehrte u. a. an der be-rühmten Al-Azhar-Universität in Kairo. Später hat er sich zum christlichen Glauben bekannt und lebt nun in den USA. Er kann aus eigener Erfahrung schildern, wie der Hass gegen die Juden, und damit gegen Is-rael, schon jungen Menschen eingeimpft wird. Er zeigt die geschichtliche Entwicklung seit Mohammed auf und wie sich das ehemalige gute Miteinander von Arabern und Juden in eine tiefe Feindschaft ver-wandelt hat. Hierzu zieht er den Koran heran, lässt die Hadithen zu Wort kommen und greift geschichtli-che Ereignisse und jüngste Stellungnahmen von Geistlichen und Politikern auf. Damit belegt er, wie diese Feindschaft durch die sich wandelnde Lehre des Islam entstand und weiterentwickelte. Er versucht bei dem Leser Verständnis dafür zu wecken und ihm zu erläutern, wie es zu solchem Hass gegenüber Israel kommen konnte. Auf Basis des internationalen Rechts, der Menschenrechte, der UNO-Beschlüsse, der staatlichen Verträge usw. ist dieses Problem nicht zu lösen, denn diese Argumente bringen Moslems die ihren Glauben ernst nehmen, nicht von ihrer Haltung ab - für sie gilt ausschließlich die Lehre des Islam. Allein diese Lehre selbst könnte eine Umkehr bewirken, alles andere Einlenken wäre nur vorübergehende Taktik, bis die Möglichkeit einer Vernichtung Israels gegeben wäre. Deshalb sucht Gabriel die Lösung im Islam selbst. Er bezieht sich dabei auf die 5. Sure, die nicht – und dies ist entscheidend – durch spätere Suren ihre Gültigkeit verloren hat, wie dies bei den medinensischen Suren der Fall ist. Israel steht dieses Land zu, was auch spätere Islamgelehrte bestätigt haben. Nur auf dieser Basis wäre, wenn überhaupt, ei-ne Umkehr im Denken und Handeln der treibenden muslimischen Kräfte möglich. Gabriel verschafft mit diesem leicht verständlich und spannend geschriebenen Buch einen Einblick in die Problematik des Nahen Ostens. Der Leser kann sich selbst durch zahlreiche Quellenangaben neben einem guten Einblick über die Lage im Nahen Ostens auch einen Überblick über den Konflikt zwischen Sunniten und Schiiten verschaffen. Friedensuchende Moslems können aus diesem Buch wertvolle Anregungen vermittelt bekommen.
