Sample text

Without its suburbs, a city would become overcrowded, living conditions would decline, and industry would be forced to relocate. 42 The Palestinian, it will be remembered, is perceived as alien to the Land of Israel; therefore it does not matter what happens to Palestinians within the State of Israel. 43 Furthermore, Netanyahu believes it is likely that a Palestinian state in the West Bank would eventually topple Hashemite Jordan and incorporate the East Bank into its domain as well, thus destroying the security buffer.

They are hoping that the Labour party will return to power in fairly short order and, more importantly, that the Labour proposals will not have been rendered obsolete by Netanyahu’s term(s) in office. Netanyahu, like anyone else, will see obstacles in his path; there will be constraints. He adapts to the constraints, and tends to make political capital of them. For what is important is not that he reach every precise goal that he has set for Israel. The specifics – will he or will he not withdraw from Hebron tomorrow, or the difference between four and six cantons as part of the autonomy – these are unimportant.

For Washington, they are test cases, or rather trip wires not to be stepped on. Netanyahu knows where they are, and he will beware of them. Much more important is the issue of directionality: whatever historical force Netanyahu exerts in international and Middle East politics will be projected in the direction of his original programme and not in the direction of Palestinian independence, not towards putting an end to Israeli occupation. It will be projected into the gradual, steady, incremental appropriation of West Bank land by force always, but with actual violence only where necessary.
