Abstract

[In a contrapuntal reading, this article revisits Edward Said's final speculations on binationalism in the context of Palestine and Israel, suggesting that binationalism may offer a way of undoing the problematic ideology of nationalism. The author sets Said's thoughts on the topic against Mahmoud Darwish's farewell poem to Edward Said (itself, a contrapuntal text). Engaging the question of exile and what it must signify to a people displaced, the author asks what it means to move forward when the historical past is still disputed, focusing specifically on the right of return and its seeming impossibility under the current political conditions in which it is discussed. ﻓﻲ ﻗﺮﺍﺀﺓ ﻃﺒﺎﻗﻴﺔ، ﺗﺴﺘﻜﺸﻒ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﻣﻮﺍﻗﻒ ﺇﺩﻭﺍﺭﺩ ﺳﻌﻴﺪ ﻭﺗﺄﻣﻼﺗﻪ ﺍﻷﺧﻴﺮﺓ ﺣﻮﻝ ﻭﻃﻦ ﺛﻨﺎﺋﻲ ﺍﻟﻘﻮﻣﻴﺔ ﻓﻲ ﺳﻴﺎﻕ ﻓﻠﺴﻄﻴﻦ ﻭﺇﺳﺮﺍﺋﻴﻞ، ﻣﺸﻴﺮﺓﹰ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺃﻥ ﻭﻃﻦ ﻭﺍﺣﺪ ﺛﻨﺎﺋﻲ ﺍﻟﻘﻮﻣﻴﺔ ﻗﺪ ﻳﻜﻮﻥ ﺍﻟﺤﻞ ﻹﻳﺪﻳﻮﻟﻮﺟﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻘﻮﻣﻴﺔ ﺍﻷﺣﺎﺩﻳﺔ ﻭﺍﻟﻤﺸﺎﻛﻞ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﺗﺜﻴﺮﻫﺎ . ﺗﻘﺎﺑﻞ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺑﻴﻦ ﺃﻓﻜﺎﺭ ﺳﻌﻴﺪ ﻭﻗﺼﻴﺪﺓ ﻣﺤﻤﻮﺩ ﺩﺭﻭﻳﺶ ﺍﻟﻮﺩﺍﻋﻴﺔ ﻟﺼﺪﻳﻘﻪ ﺑﻌﻨﻮﺍﻥ « ﻃﺒﺎﻕ: ﻋﻦ ﺇﺩﻭﺍﺭﺩ ﺳﻌﻴﺪ » ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﺗﺮﻯ ﻓﻴﻬﺎ ﻧﺼﺎﹰ ﻃﺒﺎﻗﻴﺎﹰ ﺑﺈﻣﺘﻴﺎﺯ . ﺗﺘﻨﺎﻭﻝ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﻗﻀﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﻤﻨﻔﻰ ﻭﻣﺎ ﻳﻌﻨﻴﻪ ﻟﻠﻤﺴﺘﺒﻌﺪﻳﻦ ﻗﺴﺮﻳﺎﹰ، ﻭﻣﻦ ﺛﻢﱠ ﺗﺘﺴﺎﺀﻝ ﻋﻦ ﻣﻌﻨﻰ ﺍﻟﻤﻀﻲ ﻗﺪﻣﺎﹰ ﻋﻨﺪﻣﺎ ﻳﻈﻞ ﺍﻟﻤﺎﺿﻲ ﺍﻟﺘﺎﺭﻳﺨﻲ ﻣﺘﻨﺎﺯﻋﺎﹰ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ، ﻭﺗﺮﻛﺰ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺣﻖ ﻋﻮﺩﺓ ﺍﻟﻔﻠﺴﻄﻴﻨﻴﻴﻦ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺩﻳﺎﺭﻫﻢ ﻣﻊ ﺃﻥ ﻫﺬﺍ ﺍﻟﺤﻖ ﻳﺒﺪﻭ ﻣﺴﺘﺤﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﺘﺤﻘﻖ ﻓﻲ ﻇﻞ ﺍﻷﻭﺿﺎﻉ ﺍﻟﺴﻴﺎﺳﻴﺔ ﺍﻟﺮﺍﻫﻨﺔ .]
