Show Summary Details

Preview

The chapter argues that the policy of settling a Jewish population in areas in the occupied territories derives from the ability of the radical right-wing parties to maneuver between the needs of their constituency and their ideological commitments. Unlike other accounts of Israel’s policy regarding the 1967 territories, the chapter shows that in order to fully explain the policy one needs to relate to the strategic aspects of the Israeli polity, rather than adhering to general structuralist claims about it.
