In this chapter, Jacqueline Kahanoff Shohet reflects on the new geopolitical realities faced by Israel following the 1967 war with Egypt, along with the ongoing political realities of the Cold War and Arab nationalism. After the Cold War, Pan-Arabism was supplanted by militant Islam as the primary ideological threat to Israel. The chapter marks a radical shift in Jacqueline's view of Levantinism in light of Israel's territorial conquests. It also presents her definition of Levantinization as a postcolonial construct that highlights issues about difference, immigration, and cultural integration with which Europe is currently preoccupied.

Keywords:   Jacqueline Kahanoff Shohet, Israel, Egypt, Cold War, nationalism, Pan-Arabism, Islam, Levantinism, Levantinization, Europe
