In The Jerusalem Quarterly 41 (Winter), 127-144. This essay is an effort to explore the importance of religion as a component of Israeli ultra-nationalism in both religious and non-religious circle. After all, the fact that some or even most Israelis who define themselves as religious espouse ultra-nationalist policies does not necessarily mean that religious belief is the necessary and sufficient condition to account for their ultra-nationalism.
