This paper analyzes postings on the official Facebook page of Meretz, a small Israeli political party. Meretz discursively creates a left-wing, yet Zionist, political identity through the use of slogans which reference Israeli cultural events, arguing for an idealized Israel which supports all its subjects and pursues peace with Palestine.
