This chapter discusses the way in which Israeli discourse was translated into clear and firm policy principles. During the 1948 War, Israeli leaders endeavoured to achieve the ethnic cleansing of the majority of Palestinians. Having transformed the country demographically and constructed a ring of Palestinian-free areas along the new borders, the state had isolated Palestinians in Israel from the refugees and the rest of the Arab world. A committee composed of central figures in surveillance and control apparatuses (SCA) was established to study and analyse the state's strategy and goals towards the Palestinian minority and to present a comprehensive plan for dealing with it. The imposition of the Military Government on the Palestinian populated areas was justified by pressing security considerations. The severe living conditions of Palestinians under this regime were deemed unavoidable.
