(p.299) Chapter 9 The Wallkeepers: Monitoring the Israeli-Arab Conflict
The Impacts of Lasting Occupation

Dan Caspi with Danny Rubinstein

Oxford University Press

The chapter describes the way in which the mass media have handled the occupation. It suggests that Israel has concentrated on building an “Information Wall” that separates between the Arab and the Israeli societies, blocking information on what is happening in Palestinian society in particular – and thus perpetuating reciprocal stereotypes. The “Information Wall” grew higher as the physical distance between the rival populations decreased, remaining stable and effective after occupation of the territories. The Wallkeepers are developing immanent interests in perpetuating the “Information Wall” which is far more difficult to topple than a physical wall.
