This chapter presents a paper given at the international conference titled “Beyond Violence: Religious Sources for Social Transformation.” The paper contends that as a whole, Jews appear to be no less and no more militant religionists than Muslims or Christians. Historically and until only recently, Jews simply could not engage effectively in militant activism.
