This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book deals with the period that extends between the summer of 1948 and circa 1970. It discusses the foundation of an Israeli discourse about the Palestinian minority, which Israeli leaders called birour or clarification, and the circumstances of its emergence and crystallization. The book also deals with the translation of this discourse into policy guidelines, principles and comprehensive plans. It analyses the legal and institutional frameworks through which the Palestinians were governed. The book also discusses the policy of constructing the Palestinians both as non-Jews and as an assortment of insular minorities. The book explains how Arab Knesset members (MKs) were chosen and what authority and representativeness they had in light of the building and maintenance of a control system.
