Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Israel's territorial expansion and the way the two entities' economies have become increasingly entwined to the point of unity, all with the hope in making sense of why Israel erected the Wall around the occupied Palestinian territories. It was in the midst of this undeclared war (War of Independence/al-Nakba) that the state of Israel was born. The partition plan, dubbed by Palestinians as the "Leopard Skin" effectively carved out the West Bank cities, villages and territories into separate entities similar to South African Bantustans under the Apartheid regime. Today, not only has Zionism failed to realize Ze'ev Jabotinsky's dream of establishing Eretz Israel on both sides of Jordan River, but Israel's intransigence in recognizing Palestinians legitimate political rights and demands, despite the two entities' economic integration, is manifested in the erection of the separation barrier.

Keywords: Israel; Palestinian territories; separation barrier; South African Bantustans; War of Independence; Ze'ev Jabotinsky; Zionism
