This book chronicles the dreams, illusions and aspirations of American missionaries, world travellers and national leaders, from colonial times forward, as they sought to establish "an American Israel" in the Holy Land. In their dispositions the reader can glimpse the battleground for Christian Americans and Middle Eastern Moslems in succeeding centuries. The author brings insights from his own religious roots to complement his grasp of the American phenomena which produced Orientalism. He traces the fundamentalist movements and national philosophies which influenced Americans to view themselves as the "Chosen People" and to extend their missionary resolves to the policy of "Manifest Destiny." Thus the future of American-Arab relations in the Middle East was set upon antithetical paths.

Zionism and the Arabs

How have American Zionists maintained the delicate balance between their Americanism and their Zionism? How did they, as Americans, support the principle of democracy and at the same time, as Jews, support the creation of a Jewish homeland despite the pre-1948 Arab majority in Palestine? Looking at America-Holy Land relations during the years prior to the establishment of the state of Israel, Medoff explores this crucial question of American Jewish identity. Using original, previously unpublished archival material, this study presents an engaging account of a dilemma that is still very much an issue in today's political climate.

Alixa Naff explores the experiences of Arabic-speaking immigrants to the United States before World War II, focusing on the pre-World War I pioneering generation that set the pattern for settlement and assimilation. Unlike many immigrants who were driven to the United States by dreams of industrial jobs or to escape religious or economic persecution, these artisans and owners of small, disconnected plots of land came to America to engage in the enterprise of peddling. Most of these immigrants planned to stay two or three years and return to their homelands wealthier and prouder than when they left.

The religion of Islam is now an American phenomenon. Once thought to be primarily a way of life of the Arabs and a faith alien to the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country, it has grown to a sufficient size and must be counted as one of the prominent and rapidly-growing religious movements in America. This ethnography of immigrant Muslims considers five Northeastern communities in detail. The investigation, including numerous interviews with members of these communities, provides a highly personalized look at what it means to be a believing, practicing Muslim in America at a time when Islam is under the critical scrutiny of international news. The authors describe the institutions and leadership of American Islam, Muslim law and its applications in the American context, examining the kinds of problems that beset Muslims trying to observe the elements of their faith in a potentially difficult environment. The intimations of family life and the roles and relationships of men and women are thoroughly detailed as well.
