(p.141) Chapter 5 Egalitarian Zionism
A Political Theory for the Jewish People

Chaim Gans

Oxford University Press

The chapter explicates some significant implications of egalitarian Zionism's advantages over its Zionist and post-Zionist rivals. It also identifies some additional important advantages of egalitarian Zionism. Some of these advantages pertain to the historiography of pre-Zionist Judaism. Others relate to the historiography of Zionism itself. The chapter addresses an internal Zionist accusation commonly made against the supporters of the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the 1967 borders, namely that this solution is inconsistent with Zionist ideology. It is argued that this is the only solution to the conflict consistent with egalitarian Zionism, although, of course, it is not consistent with proprietary Zionism. The chapter then discusses a major advantage of egalitarian Zionism pertaining to the future course of the Jewish/Palestinian conflict. It concerns the stability of the possible end-state solutions to this conflict that Zionists and post-Zionists can offer.

Keywords:   egalitarian Zionism, 1967 borders, proprietary Zionism, post-Zionists, two-state solution
