A DAVID ROSENMAN'S

A

take a more extreme stand
which further aggravates the
situation.
Individual soldiers in occu-
pying armies often develop
what Peri calls the "pin-head
syndrome" — a tendency to
keep a low profile and avoid
responsibility.
"The average soldier or of-
ficer sees no forthcoming
solution for ending the oc-
cupation and feels powerless
to change the situation,"
writes Peri. "This in turn pro-
duces an unwillingness to get
involved and instead he opts
to keep as low a profile as
possible within his unit, or to
leave the service altogether."
Pen found that such behav-
ior and attitudes had not ex-
isted in the Israeli army, even
after 20 years of occupation,
until the intifada, unlike in
other armies studied.
In searching for reasons
why such behavior did not oc-
cur in IDF soldiers, Peri
discovered that until the
uprising began in December,

the army encountered very
little Palestinian resistance
to the occupation.
In effect, the Palestinians'
compliance made the IDF's
job easier, ensuring a more
"natural" situation, not only
for the army but for the
government and Israeli
civilians. Peri also found that
there was a very high consen-
sus of support for its army.
One factor which was pres-
ent prior to the uprising, and
which makes this occupation
similar to other in history, is
the presence of Israeli settlers
within the territories. Their
presence, writes Peri, forces
the military to become polit-
icized.
"Twenty years of relative
calm came to an end with the
outburst of the intifada, a
development which has in-
fluenced the whole military
structure in the territories.
"The Palestinian rebellion
resulted in an explosion of
controversy, which caused
some of the characteristics of
other occupying armies to
surface in the IDF."
Peri's said the situation
demands anti-war fare
measures, but implementa-
tion of such measures is
usually difficult.
Peri's study will soon be
published by Westview Press
of Boulder, Colo.
