Abstract

On November 4, 1995, the prime minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, was shot three times in the back. His assassination consummated two decades of growing malevolence between the two new political-cultural tendencies that had emerged in Israel since the 1970s: neo-Zionism and post-Zionism. Toward the century’s end, Israel’s founding Jewish-nationalist ethos, Zionism, is undergoing a crisis, and two emerging antagonistic foci of identity are struggling to reshape a new ethos for Israel: hyper-nationalist neo-Zionism and civic-liberal post-Zionism. Yitzhak Rabin, “Mr. Security” of Zionism, had fallen victim to a tag of war he facilitated setting in motion, but never really comprehended.
