This chapter examines Rabbi Reines' thoughts on Zionism, the commandment to dwell in the land of Israel, and the Canaanites. It shows how, in setting down the foundations of religious Zionism, Reines worked hard to sever all connections between modern political Zionism and the ancient Israelites' war of conquest against the Canaanites. He believed that Zionism was all about fulfilling the grand divine commandment of settling the land of Israel, but he insisted that this commandment must never be interpreted through the model of the Israelite war on Canaan.
