Chapter Summary

This book described and analyzed the emergence of the Modern Hebrew repertoire and social field in the first decades of the twentieth century in Europe and Palestine. Such a typical model was expressed in Ruppin's call to conceal information and to act in indirect and discreet manner, a perception which generated eventually a consistent and coordinated gap between the declarative and practical dimensions of Palestinian Zionism. One of the outcomes of this model was the practice of &t;creating facts on the ground.&t; The last part examines Ruppin's position regarding the Arabs, which reflects more or less the position of Palestinian Zionism's dominant group. The research into Ruppin's life and career thus opened the way for further research into the profound differences between pre-Zionist Judaism and the Zionist weltanschauung as it evolved in Israel, and challenges the common and popular narration that tends to identify Judaism and Zionism.

Keywords: Arabs; Europe; Israel; Judaism; Modern Hebrew; Palestinian Zionism; Ruppin; weltanschauung; Zionism
