The Effect of Ideological Commitment and Place Differences on Form and Content in two Zionist Novels of the Political Fantasy (in Arabic)

Auther : Aref Toufeq

This study is about two zionist political thrillers: A. Kenan's "The Qatar Road to Ein Harod" and E. H. Hunt's "The Gaza Intercept". Amos Kenan' is an Israeli journalist and an author of several novels. 'E. Howard Hunt' is an American Zionist, He was a correspendent for "Time" and "life". 

The study starts from the premises:

- that the ideological commitment of the author affects his work, and

- that the proximity to the events affects the way in which the author treats his subject.

The juxtaposition of the two novels helps to determine the validity of these premises. The study comprises three main points: the events, the characters, and the technical aspects. In addition, a brief account of the meaning of political thriller and an abstract of the two novels are provided. 

The discussion reveals that there is a substantial difference between the two novels concerning the three main points:

- concerning the events, Israel, in both novels, faces a dilemma. But while it is an internal one in "The Road To Ein Harod", it is external in "The Gaza Intercept'. In the first novel the dilemma emerges when the dispute between the moderates and the extremists proves irreconcible. A military coup takes place and "Ein Harod" attracts the rebels.
