Borderlands Lecture: Israel’s Elastic Borders: The Case of 1967

Dates:
  • Tue 17 Nov 2015 16.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2015-11-17 16:00 2015-11-17 18:00 Europe/Paris Borderlands Lecture: Israel’s Elastic Borders: The Case of 1967

The United Nations allocated the Jewish state about half of British-Mandate Palestine, but since its birth in 1948 Israel has expanded its borders even beyond the limits of Palestine. In the Six Day War of June 1967 Israel occupied the whole of Palestine, Syria’s Golan Heights, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and two Saudi islands in the Gulf of Aqaba. These territorial conquests provided Israel with a historic opportunity to fulfil its declared desire – to settle the Palestinian-Israeli conflict by trading land for peace. Israel, however, has chosen to keep the occupied territories – without the Arab inhabitants if possible – at the expense of peace by applying a foreign policy of deception.
