Amos Kenan or Amos Keinan (1927-2009) received popularity as an Israeli painter, book writer, columnist and many more. Kenan born in Tel Aviv originated from a socialists background. His father worked as a construction labourer and veteran. But became a clerk after experiencing an injury on duty. Kenan formed part of the Lehi underground movement because of the anti-colonist and imperialist philosophies they stood for. He also joined the satirical column named Uzi & Co. in Haaretz. They received recognition as the first anti-establishment Israeli Column. The authorities arrested Kenan and a friend in 1952 related to an assassination attempt on the Israeli Transport Minister named David-Zvi Pinkas. He published The Road to Ein Harod in 1984 representative of a dystopian narrative that portrays Israel’s future in a civil war. The book received significant popularity and changed into a film script.
