Iraqi Arab-Jewish Identities: First Body Singular

By Orit Bashkin

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2010

The author raises questions relating to the different significations of the concept "the Arab-Jew" in Iraq. She concludes by stating that the reconstruction of the Baghdadi, Arab, Iraqi, and Jewish experience, which informed Arab-Jewish identities, can only be partial. It can be, and is, carried out by historians, sociologists, and literary scholars who consider the connections between texts, their meanings, and the conditions of their production. It is also carried out by second-generation Mizrahi Jews, and other Israelis sympathetic to the Arab-Jewish agenda.
