Preservation vs Development – Zionism and the Land of Israel

Zionism and the Land of Israel

Two views on preservation, development and the value of nature

The next two pages contain an assortment of passages of Zionist and Israeli thinkers reflecting on the role of Zionism in developing the Land of Israel. Read the passages and consider the following questions:

  1. From an environmental perspective, has Zionism harmed or helped the land of Israel?
  2. Is opposition to development anti-Zionist?
  3. What is “Green/Eco Zionism” and is such a thing possible? Important?
