Post-Zionist critique on Israel and the Palestinians II: The media
JOURNAL OF PALESTINE STUDIES
University of California Press
The academic debate in Israel on Zionism and its implications for the way the society views itself and the "other" were discussed in part one of this article. This part examines the press, which with partial privatization and the cumulative impact of the Lebanon war and the intifada has undergone a transformation since the late 1980s. While a wider diversity of views and bold reporting on events are now cur- rent, the article concludes that the representation of the Palestinians and Arabs in the news columns is fundamentally unchanged. The last part willfollow the manifestations of the academic debate in film, theater, novels, music, andpoems and will assess the significance of these changes in the culture and worldview of Israeli society as a whole.
