ABSTRACT
Cock Fight explores what happens when Israelis lose the controlling power that comes with occupation of Palestinian territory. Its portrayal of the Israeli reaction to Palestinian power - naiveté, anger, helplessness, resignation - tracks general attitudes among Israeli Jews over time, anticipating in many ways the desire for complete separation from Palestinians.
