5 Consider, only as an example, “The Book and the Sword: The Nationalist Yeshivot and Political Radicalism in Israel” by Eliezer Don-Yehiya in Volume IV. In that one essay, he refers to “fundamentalists” with the following qualifying adjectives: religious, radical, national, religious nationalist, pure, activist, radical messianic and halachic. In addition, he also mentions “messianic mystics,” “activist-particularist(s),” “zealots,” “ultranationalists” and “nationalist haredim.”
