(p.65) Chapter Two Religion in the Making of the Israeli and Turkish Nation-States
Beyond Sacred and Secular
Stanford University Press

This chapter details the ideas, agreements, and shifts that have marked the broader settings of religious politics in Israel and Turkey, and analyzes how elites of religious parties reproduced religious symbols and why an increasing number of voters find these messages relevant. It warns against ahistorical treatment of the interactions between the state and religion and the reification of a secular state sphere as an area that can be easily separated from the religious sphere. The chapter also suggests that the dependency of the state on religion and vice versa, and not the state's control of religion, seem to make religion one of the most contentious areas of Israel's and Turkey's politics.

Keywords:   religious politics, Israel, Turkey, religious parties, religious symbols, voters, secular state, state and religion
