In closing, this book discusses the shifting balance between ideology, economics, and defense strategy, which has shaped Jewish settlement in Palestine and in the State of Israel. The configuration of these three factors transformed a variety of imported European ideas and theories as they were adapted to local circumstances. With a keen sense that the country might be at a historic turning point, Israel in the 1990s began preparing for the next century with a new national plan entitled “Israel 2020.” The guiding concepts are familiar to students of western planning, especially the sensitivity to ecological problems and the attempt to find an appropriate mix between public responsibility and private initiative.

Keywords:   ideology, economics, defense strategy, Jewish settlement, imported European ideas, national plan, Israel 2020
