Gershon Shafir Writes in the Washington Post About New Book

Gershon Shafir of the UCSD Sociology department wrote in the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog. In the article titled “Israel’s ‘temporary’ occupation has lasted 50 years. A new book explains why,” Gershon discusses the subject of his new book, “A Half Century of Occupation: Israel, Palestine and the World’s Most Intractable Conflict.” He writes:

In my new book, I describe how the “Shamgar Doctrine” — which I name after Meir Shamgar, the military’s general advocate during the 1967 war and the president of the Israeli Supreme Court in the 1980s — justifies and legalizes this apparent contradiction.
