From its creation until December 1966, Israel imposed a form of martial law called "The Military Government" on the majority of its Palestinian Arab citizens. Six months later, it enacted a military administration over the recently-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. The almost seamless continuity between these two military administrations has dominated the interpretation of the conflict between Israel and Palestine. However, this lecture, based on Degani's developing book manuscript, will emphasize the fundamental differences between the logic that governed state policies towards the two Palestinian populations. These differences are significant and provide rigorous explanations for the conflict's trajectory over the last thirty years.

This is the seventh Israel Studies Lecture, presented by the Jewish Studies and Israel Studies Programs

Arnon Degani is a Fellow at the Avraham Harman Research Center for Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University and at Molad Center.
