Dramaturgical Analysis: Intergrop Relations in Israel

In an earlier period groups of Jews spent forty years in an exodus from Egypt, where they were slaves, to the land of Israel, where they were to act as a free people. It is written that forty years, or two generations, was prescribed for the exercise because it would take that long for the older generation to pass on, for them to shake off the slave mentality, and for a new consciousness to develop. The sojourn in the desert served as an "outward bound" experience, to toughen them up, and teach survival skills. In the Middle East the desert nomads have always been able to conquer more sedentary groups. Compared with the present day Israelis, who also have had forty years to develop a new consciousness, the earlier Israelites had several advantages. There were only twelve tribes to bring together, not an ingathering of many different peoples from many parts of the world. In those early days, there was also direct intervention from Heaven, so that it was clear which side was favored in the "holy war."

Only a limited number of options were suggested for dealing with the people who already occupied the land that the Israelites wished to take over. Members of any tribe already settled in the promised land were either to be killed or driven out. The idea that the land of Israel might include a sizable minority of Arabs and that in addition the Israelites should attempt to control territories with a population of more than one-and-a-half million Arabs was not envisioned.

For our consideration of problems of intergroup relations in present-day Israel, we begin by noting the population statistics that reveal the proportions of the various ethnic and other groups and the extent of conflict
