Few ideas are as deeply ingrained in Israeli culture as the one summed up by the Hebrew phrase ''meatim mul rabim,'' or ''the few against the many. But the start of this school year marks a quiet revolution in the teaching of Israeli history to most Israeli pupils. New, officially approved textbooks make plain that many of the most common Israeli beliefs are as much myth as fact. The new books say, for example, that it was the Israelis who had the military edge in the War of Independence. They say that many Palestinians left their land not -- as has traditionally been taught -- because they smugly expected the Arab states to sweep back victoriously, but because they were afraid, and in some cases expelled by Israeli soldiers. The books freely use the word ''Palestinian'' to refer to a people and a nationalist movement, unheard of in the previous texts. They refer to the Arabic name for the war -- the Naqba, or catastrophe -- and they ask the pupils to put themselves in the Arabs' shoes and consider how they would have felt about Zionism.

Sometimes this thesis is put forward from those who consider themselves Zionists, and sometimes from those who make the case that support for Israel and Zionism is itself illiberal. But the consistent theme is that contemporary Israel no longer fits with the way most American Jews think, and that the fault for this lies squarely on the shoulders of the Israelis. This argument is rooted in both genuine differences of opinion between the two communities, as well as some misunderstandings. A lot of the disconnect has more to do with the changing nature of American Jewry than it does with Israelis who have supposedly gone off the rails.
