Title Framing Religious Conflict: Popular Israeli Discourse on Religion and State
Author: Selinger-Abutbul, Dana; Sasson, Theodore; Tabory, Ephraim
Abstract: To understand how Israelis respond to religious conflicts fought in the public arena by political elites, this study examines the discourses of participants in a sample of focus group discussions. We begin by identifying the rival frames that organize the public (mass media) discourse on the role of religion in Israeli society. Next, we examine how focus groups of religious and non-religious Israeli Jews responded to the public debate. We conclude by exploring the implications of our findings for understanding the dynamics of religious conflict in Israeli society, and by comparing the Israeli case to that of the United States.
