Ideology and Politics in Israel

By Leonard Fein

American Jewish Congress, Summer 1966

Israeli politics suffers from the idealism of the eschatological foundations of the Jewish State. Because Zionist theory was always a means to an end, the Foundation of the Jewish State, there was never substantial discussion as to the role of economic development theory and political differentiation in the daily processes of the management of the country. As the Zionist ideal of the pioneer with book in one hand and plow in the other faded into the reality of a modern differentiated economy, Israeli politics and social development was forced to adapt around it.
