"Redeeming" the land: from kibbutzniks to Hilltop Youth Carmelle Wolfson - The Electronic Intifada - I asked a relative in Kibbutz Hatzor (about 40 kilometers south of Tel Aviv) what he thinks about the comparison of settlers to kibbutzniks.

"The prevailing attitude among `our` kibbutz movement," he says, framing it in the context of Israel`s internal religious and secular divide, "Is that there`s a distinct difference between the absolute need for a state, and the steps that were taken to realize that need, and the approach that says that the land is God-given and thus there`s only one legitimate claim." 2/2/2010
