ABSTRACT
According to a recent report in Ha'aretz, Tekoa is one of 17 isolated settlements Ariel Sharon plans to uproot to accommodate an interim Palestinian state. There are rumors among the settlers that government assessors have prepared plans for relocating Tekoa's 1,400 residents. Tekoa's residents are almost evenly divided between secular and religious, creating a model of coexistence virtually unique among the smaller, pioneering settlements, which are almost all uniformly Orthodox. More than dismantling a few outposts, Sharon has dismantled the historic alliance between the religious right, represented by the settlement movement and motivated by Biblical entitlement, and the secular right, represented by the Likud and motivated by security concerns. Sharon probably has the backing of a majority of secular Likud members. Average Likudniks remain wary of Arab intentions but recognize the demographic and political dilemmas posed by the occupation.
