Most research and analyses of Israel’s settlement enterprise has focused on the use of particular paragraphs in the Geneva Convention. For over fifty years Israel has refuted the use of the Geneva Convention with regards to its settlements. Doing so, a more relevant question arises: what laws, governance, and regulations are of importance in understanding Israelis' behavior? If one accepts the premise that Israel is occupying some areas, and as an occupying force is forbidden to change laws from a previous sovereign, it becomes relevant as to what the laws are and how they are being followed. The aim of this book is to delve deeper in understanding the rationale behind Israeli land policies.
