Israel and Algeria: Protests, Politics, and Colonialism

Prof. Bruce Maddy-Weitzman, MDC researcher, has published an article for "Fikra Forum", which explores the parallels between Israel and Algeria.

"Israel and Algeria may appear dissimilar at first glance—if not entirely at odds in the context of Algeria’s traditional role in the radical pan-Arabist camp and supporter of the Palestinian national movement in its formative years, along with Israel’s recent geopolitical alliance with Morocco. Yet the respective histories and experiences of these two countries are worth examining in tandem. Indeed, understanding both the differences and similarities shared by Israel and Algeria may offer some insights regarding the challenges facing Israel today."
