Rafi spent a year in a Jor-
danian prison camp, and later
he fought in the 1956 and
1967 wars. Like most Real
Israelis he had a casual con-
tempt for the "Arab mental-
ity" and a hardline view of
Israel's security interests.
But he was also a man of un-
common good nature and he
tended to like Arabs as in-
dividuals. It was through him
that I first saw the conflicts
inherent in the Real Israel's
view of our neighbors.
In those days official
Israeli doctrine declared that
no such thing as "Palestin-
ians" existed. The people in
the West Bank were simply
Arabs, and as such they were
perceived as backward, prone
to incitement and violence,
incompetent (bad craftsman-
ship was always called "Arab
work") and primitive. At the
same time, they had a charm-
ing folklore and a warm-
hearted hospitality that
made them picturesque and
almost attractive.
After the Six Day War,
tens of thousands of West
Bank Arabs were caught out-
side the area—students who
had been away at school,
fathers who had been work-
ing in other Arab countries
and so forth. Israeli policy
was to allow them to return,
and it was our unit's task to
administer this program,
known as Family Reunion.
Every week we received
dozens of applications for
repatriation which were
discussed at a weekly inter-
ministerial meeting. There,
Rafi was transformed from
an Israeli military man and
Arab fighter into an advocate
of Arab rights. He presented
each case as if it involved a
member of his own family,
often reminding his fellow
committee members of the
conventional wisdom of the
day—Israel did not intend to
stay in the West Bank, and a
humane occupation was our
chance to forge links with the
people there. Israelis believed
that to know them would be
to love them. Arab hatred of
Israel was supposedly a func-
tion of simple ignorance; ex-
posure to Israel would correct
it. Rafi put the goal succinct-
ly: Israeli behavior toward
the Arabs should be aimed at
winning us "the Nobel Prize
for military occupation."
Of course there were other
approaches, even then. A
small group of Israelis, most-
ly orthodox, demanded the
right to live in the West Bank
city of Hebron, the burial site
of the Biblical patriarchs; and
in 1970 they were allowed to
establish a settlement nearby
known as Kiriat Arba. The
sons and daughters of the
settlers who had been mas-
sacred at Gush Etzion in
1948 were allowed to return
to the area, also near Hebron,
