Public Silence and Latent Memories

Yitzhak Rabin and the Arab-Palestinian Citizens of Israel

Tamir Sorek

This article examines how Yitzhak Rabin is remembered by Palestinian citizens of Israel by juxtaposing analysis of references to him in the Arabic press in Israel with analysis of three surveys among Arab and Jewish citizens of Israel from November 1995 until July 2008. The findings suggest the existence of a latent nostalgia for Rabin's second term as prime minister (1992-1995) as a period when being Israeli looked like a realistic option for Palestinian citizens of Israel. Paradoxically, the image of Rabin among the Arab citizens of Israel moved in opposing directions in each of the two spheres of memory examined. At the public level, the extensive and mostly sympathetic attention given by some Arab political actors before 2000 was transformed into silence in the post-2000 period. The individual-based surveys, however, showed that Rabin's image remained salient and the sympathy felt for him even increased.

This article looks at how Israelis and American Jews—politicians, state officials, rabbis, public figures, and the press—viewed Henry Kissinger in the months during and a after the Yom Kippur War of 1973. The expectations of Kissinger reflect the endurance of certain attitudes in Jewish political culture, which saw him either as an advocate on behalf of the Jews with the gentile powers that be, or as the influential yet alienated Jew willing to betray his people. Kissinger himself sometimes turned his Jewishness into a potent tool to advance his policy goals in confidential conversations with American officials, American Jews, Israelis, and Arabs. Yet Kissinger's relation to his Jewish identity was not only used as an instrument, but also defined who he was, regardless of whether or not he admitted it.
