Armed Struggle and the Search for State

Yezid Sayigh

There had been numerous demonstrations and confrontations during the year 1987, the latest in response to the death of four members of the little-known Islamic Jihad. The occupied territories were again electrified on 25 November, when a lone PF-GC guerrilla flew over the Lebanese-Israeli border in a motorized hang-glider and killed six soldiers, and wounded seven at an IDF camp near Kiryat Shmona before being killed himself. To the highly visible threat of Israeli encroachment was added the effect of Israeli policies since 1967 on the local economy. In short, the patterns and skills of revolt were already in place by the start of the intifada. Although the spread of education and unemployment were necessary conditions for rising nationalism in the occupied territories, they did not predetermine political leadership, organizational structure, or ideological preference.

Keywords:   Islamic Jihad, guerrilla, Kiryat Shmona, Israeli encroachment, political leadership
