Religious Discrimination and Fanaticism in the Holy Land

Although the major issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are unrelated to religion and are actually questions of international law and human rights, religious fanaticism does play a role in perpetuating the conflict. Particularly, Jewish chauvinism and fundamentalism, paired with Israel’s financial and military power, present significant challenges to efforts for a just resolution. While there are numerous Jewish organizations – both within Israel and elsewhere – opposing this extremism, they are, as yet, much less influential than their opponents.
