ABSTRACT
Under the pretext of giving the Palestinians a state and allowing them some level of self-determination, the Israeli agenda includes creating ghettos that consist of small, overcrowded and isolated geographical areas. These bantustans contribute to the strangulation of the economy and of the ability to find employment to the point where the average Palestinian will have one of only two choices: to leave voluntarily or to starve in his own land under an illegal occupation. While Israelis feel compelled to cede land and isolate the Palestinians in order to avoid the demographic threat, Jewish settlers in the territories have called for government policies to encourage Jewish births, promote religious conversions and stimulate Jewish immigration.
