This chapter begins with a discussion of conflicting images of the Arab, covering the Arab as Hebrew, as “noble savage,” and as a model for the new Jew, as well as the Arab as a member of a primitive culture, as the descendant of Ishmael, and as Amalek, the bloodthirsty and cruel enemy. The discussion then turns to attitudes toward Arabs in Sabra education, Arabism as a Palmach status symbol, and combat culture and the attitude toward the enemy.

Keywords: Sabras; Arabs; Palmach; education; combat culture; status symbol
