(p.145) Conclusion
Shared Identities

Aaron W. Hughes

Oxford University Press

The conclusion addresses the present. It begins with the erection of the “security barrier” (from the Israeli side) or the “apartheid wall” (from the Palestinian). It uses this structure as a way to think about the intersection of Judaism and Islam in the modern period. Although much of the analysis in the book focused on the premodern period, it should be quite clear already that the premise is that the past cannot be accessed except through the present. Unfortunately, what “Jewish–Muslim relations” means at the current moment is known too well. While the goal is not to solve the unsolvable, it is to point out that Jews and Muslims continue to think from, with, and about the other.

Keywords:   Amos Oz, David Grossman, security barrier, apartheid wall, Palestinian-Israeli conflict
