Israelis: West Bank Settlements, The Opposition, Pursuers of a Third Way

Israeli society and politics can seem monolithic -- a right-leaning political coalition has been the dominant force there since 2009, supporting further expansion of the West Bank settlements. However, the opposition remains vital, and Israelies and Jews caught up in the West Bank conflict reflect many divides: religious v. secular, right v. left, and outliers v. both. Holy Land’s main Israeli characters reflect those divides: a right wing settler, a leftist leader of the anti-settlement movement, and Rabbi Menachem Froman, a neo-Hasidic settler rabbi who said that settlers should agree to live in a Palestinian state.
