The subdivision which the Israeli surveillance and control apparatuses identified as a 'natural category', through which surveillance could be exercised, is the locality. It is a spatially defined unit, fairly manageable, and despite plausible differences among the inhabitants, it is bound by common interests and local institutions. Through their financing of the local authorities, which were used as a subsidiary arm for surveillance and political control, the Palestinians became participants in their own subjection to political control. One issue of grave concern to the Arabists was the changes in the Palestinian society, particularly the generational change. Kafr Yassif was an unusual case among Arab villages in one major respect. It was the only village with an elected local authority which continued to exist after the establishment of the State of Israel.
