The Temporal Emblematics of Belonging: Position and Validity in Israeli Political Discourse
This chapter presents a general framework for understanding ideological and historical changes in Israel’s history. Diner’s analysis is quite abstract and offers a general typology of modern states and modern ideologies. The conceptual framework here is both psychological and historical, offering a lucid and powerful survey of the whole history of the Zionist movement in Palestine/Israel and its ideological needs and constrains. The chapter covers some events in detail, but draws broad conclusions about general trends over decades and centuries. The result is a highly original analysis of ideologies and historical turning points.
