Show Summary Details


This chapter sketches the profile of the Stand-Tall Generation in light of recent events and uses this historical perspective to offer a different vision for Israel's future. Israel' s main dilemma concerning its Palestinian citizens is whether to include or control them. The discussion includes the Supreme Court's precedent-setting ruling of March 2000. The case in point involved a young Palestinian family named Qaʿdan. The family, a couple and their three young children, applied in 1995 to buy a plot of land and build their home in Katzir, a suburban settlement established by the Jewish Agency a few years earlier in Wadi Aʿara, near Um al-Fahim.
