But even Pappés point of departure remains more methodologically oriented than aiming at shifting the substance of Zionist history itself. As Gramsci observed, Widespread mass ideology must be distinguished from the scientific works and the great philosophical syntheses, which are its real cornerstones.

The kibbutz, based as it was on the collective labour of its members, came to the fore as the main development type in the turbulent circumstances of the Mandate periodit simultaneously served the economic no less than the military and political expansionist purposes of the Zionist Yishuv. The moshav became the dominant type in the wake of the establishment of the State when it was used to absorb the mass of impoverished Jewish immigrants that arrived during those years, and to settle the vast areas of land and property from which the indigenous Palestinians had been cleansed.

Neither does it suggest that early Israeli anthropology worked as a concerted conscious effort, with unified intent or an agreed agenda. Rather, what I am out to demonstrate is how the political climate that prevailed when early Israeli anthropology was consolidated shaped what ethnographers were interested in, where they looked for it and how they tried to prove it. Haidar (1985) notes a division of labour that characterized Israeli social science until the 1980s. It had sociologists studying Jewish Israeli society, leaving Arab society in general and Palestinians in particular to scholars trained in Middle Eastern studies, many of whom had been previously employed by the states security establishment.
