This chapter highlights the importance of the concepts of desire, deterritorialisation, and reterritorialisation in how people rethink and reconfigure the sociocultural boundaries of the Zionist project in Israel. It suggests a doubled becoming-Israeli and an Israeli-becoming, which can be understood in terms of changing the dominant structures of both the Israeli state and how Zionism is produced and circulated through the Israeli sociocultural sphere. The chapter describes how Arab Israeli novelist Anton Shammas deterritorialised the Hebrew language only to reterritorialise it as the language of Israeli national identity. It also discusses Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's concepts of power relations, regimes of truth, and power/knowledge.

Keywords:   Zionist project, Israel, deterritorialisation, reterritorialisation, desire, becoming-Israeli, Israeli-becoming, Anton Shammas, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari
