Abstract

In this study the author argues that the policy which Israel has been pursuing in the West Bank since 1967 is intended to drive out the Palestinians, to take over their land, and eventually to annex the occupied territories. The study describes the various methods of confiscation of Arab land, building of settlements, as well as legislative, judiciary, and military measures adopted by Israel.
