If discourses and policy plans were to be implemented, they ought to be couched within a legal framework and to be implemented by specialized institutions. Israel's first piece of legislation passed soon after the declaration of Israel's independence was the Law and Administration Ordinance published on 19 May 1948. This affirmed the continuity of the legal system that had existed hitherto, including the Mandatory Emergency Regulations of 1945, except those which restricted Jewish immigration. In fact, the state of emergency in Israel has never been revoked, and the emergency regulations, which curtail the rule of law, were enforced almost exclusively on the Palestinians by a Military Government that was imposed on the Palestinian-populated areas. In various aspects, the Military Government, along with the other institutions, embodied and gave expression to conditions and practices of a panopticon.
