Title: Israel Securitization Issue

  • Total Pages: 10
  • Words: 3097
  • Sources:10
  • Citation Style: APA
  • Document Type: Essay
Essay Instructions: This paper will be an analysis of any major actors’ policies towards (or securitization
of) an international or global security issue.

The paper will answer the question: How has Israel securitized or not
securitized the below mentioned issue?
The paper will have three sections:
1) an explanation of the issue: a) what is the challenge b) and why it should be
considered a “security” issue (3 pages)
2) a critical examination of country X’s current (or past, if relevant) policies
towards the security challenge (5-6 pages).

3) your policy prescriptions for how the country can best address this issue (2-3

Tentative outline to follow and expand on, the point is to stress the Israeli case and have it crumble under logic.

How has the state of Israel securitized the freedom of the Palestinian people?

Case Study:
The aftermath of the Balfour document and the consequent U.N. resolutions at the climax of 1947 created the Jewish democratic state of Israel. The author plans to examine the security risks the indigenous people of Palestine pose upon Israel’s national security.

The policies of the Israeli government have allowed it to cement itself onto Palestinian land. It has also succeeded in breaking the will of the Palestinians and attempting to force a wedge between them and said land by various means. This is vital to the security of the State of Israel as they have countless interests scattered all over the globe well before the creation of the State in 1948 that demand such a position.
The Palestinians who have become nationalized Israelis pose a security threat to Israel as they might have access to internal state secrets such outsiders might abuse. This threat creates such notions of segregated roads, schools, and the lack of voting and employment privileges in the name of national security with a shrinking platform for citizenship. The result of such actions would eventually culminate in an Israeli apartheid state that must cast away remaining dissidents past an ever-increasing perimeter to preserve the interests of the Israeli state.
