Conspiracy and Interpretation of History: Between the Established Rules Approach and Liberal Interpretations

The study suggests that the conspiracy theory is nothing but a “pretext” for providing justifications for our failure and misjudgment of the major events and developments that we face. For example, the establishment of the Zionist entity was due to lack of political and strategic competence among the leaders of neighboring Arab regimes rather than due to ‘conspiracy’.

The study of the ‘conspiracy theory’ and its connection to the interpretation of history comes within mutual accusations between different intellectual approaches, where the idea of ‘conspiracy theory’, according to liberals, prevails among intellectual paradigms that are closer to ‘closure’ or ‘mobilization’, in reference to ‘nationalists’ and Islamists’ rather than other orientations, which is a flawed debate, according to the study.
