La mobilisation du religieux dans le conflit israélo-arabe

Abstract : The Judeo-Arab conflict in Palestine is eminently political; this in no way denies the part played by religion, which has a changing, but undeniable role. The dispute is over the Holy Land, a place that the three monotheisms are highly attached to and opposes Jews and Arabs (mostly Muslims) who, for the most part, are closely tied to their respective religions both as a practice and as a belief. In itself, this religious identification is neutral; it only has an impact in certain historical contexts, when it is turned into a political movement by people. It can then give rise to “religious nationalisms” – in which the nation as an objective is entirely subsumed under the religious agenda. On both the Jewish and the Muslim sides, they sustain absolute mindsets which prevent any compromise from emerging.
