Wrestling with an Angel

This chapter examines the change in halakha and morality in Zionism after the Six-Day War. It suggests that the most conspicuous change in the moral outlook of religious Zionism after the Six-Day War was on the question of causing harm to the civilian population of the enemy. It also explains that religious Zionism did not take a distinct stand in any of the great political or moral controversies that wracked the Yishuv and the newborn state until the Six-Day War and that the founding fathers of Zionism had reservations about the use of force in the struggle for redemption.

Keywords:   halakha, morality, Zionism, Six-Day War, civilian population, Yishuv, force, redemption
