Israeliness in No Man’s Land

Citizenship in the West Bank of Israel/Palestine


Yarden Enav

This book is the result of ethnographic research carried out in the Academic College of Judea & Samaria (ACJS), located in the West Bank of Israel/Palestine. The book deals with Israeli citizenship and identity, and examines the ways in which it is being understood and imagined by ACJS students and teachers. The book also analyzes the Orange Zionist organizational culture of the ACJS. In the end, a new socio-political model of Israel/Palestine is offered: Israel as a Zionist Democracy.

Chapter 2: Settling the Land


“Now the LORD had said to Abram: ‘Get out of thy country, and from your family, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed’”

(Genesis, ch.12:1–3, NKJV Bible)

“On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates…”

(Genesis, ch.15:18, NKJV Bible)

“There is a heavenly politics, and it guides earthly politics. Part of our redemption is the conquest and settlement of the land. This was set by the heavenly politics, which no earthly politics can negate.”
