ABSTRACT
Argues that the survivability of Israel as a nation is in question, despite its military strength. Problem of internal divisions between Israelis; Belief that the intifada with Palestine could lead to a civil war between Jews; View that defeat for Israel will not mean Jews leaving the country as some Palestinians hope, but rather it ceasing to exist as a functional polity; Suggestion that Israel should pull out of the occupied areas and construct a wall to defend itself.
