Israel and The Threat of Jewish Fundamentalism

Within the last two decades, Israel has witnessed a significant growth of Jewish fundamentalism, including entry into the highest echelons of the Israeli government. The March 2023 pogroms at Hawara and other Palestinian villages in the West Bank are the visible result of this growth and the resulting power of divergent Religious Zionist groups whose aim is to transform Israel into a theocracy. For some, the current war is nothing but a harbinger for Messianic days and a pretext for political violence. 

Join Sources Editor Claire Sufrin and Tomer Persico, author of ‘A Natural Act of Vengeance’: Settler Violence and Two Types of Jewish Fundamentalism from the Fall 2023 issue of Sources: A Journal of Jewish Ideas, for a conversation about this growing phenomenon and its connection to October 7th and the Israel-Hamas War
