Religion and Nation Building: Two Generations of Israeli Experience

By Charles S. Liebman

Charles S. Liebman, 1995

The establishment of the state of Israel in May, 1948 confronted the political leadership with security problems of the first order -- the very existence of the state and the lives of its citizens were threatened by invading Arab armies. However, even at the moments of greatest peril to its existence, and more forcefully within a year of its establishment, Israeli political leaders felt obliged to deal with the challenge of nation building. The problems were political as well as ideological.
