Written in the midst of an 18 months ethnographic fieldwork conducted among religiously motivated Jewish settlers and Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, this field notes article engages with the question of social change. I anchor the article around cases of settlement expansion and settlers' violence as a means to discuss the Jewish settlement movement in the occupied territories vis-à-vis the recent Israeli mass-protest movement for social change. Pondering upon the problematics of social change as a constant, the juxtaposition of the two social movements enables me to frame the question of social change as inextricably tied to violence and its normalization.
