erusalem — Modern
Hebrew has always
been quick to absorb
"popular" Arabic words. In
the past year the term "in-
tifada" has entered the
vocabulary of almost every
Israeli, and its meaning has
a much deeper significance
than its reference to the re-
cent Arab "uprising."
The intifada began in ear-
ly December 1987, when
young Arabs in Gaza began
throwing rocks, petrol bombs
and other objects at IDF
soldiers and blocked roads
with burning tires. A number
of Palestinian protesters were
killed as soldiers defended
themselves, and yet the Arabs
were somehow able to project
themselves in the world
media as innocent victims of
non-violent protests. The
reason for this, no doubt, was
that they bore improvised,
albeit lethal weapons, as op-
posed to guns or grenades.
This public relations success
undoubtedly fuelled the in-
tifada in its early stages.
Explanations for the unex-
pected eruption of the in-
tifada have been diverse. It
was suggested that a road ac-
cident in which an army vehi-
cle in Gaza inadvertently kill-
ed several Arabs inflamed
local hostility; others say that
a hang glider attack some
weeks earlier by a terrorist
crossing the Lebanese border
into Israel, which resulted in
the deaths of six IDF soldiers,
encouraged rebellion.
However, as the intifada
spread throughout the ad-
ministered territories, and as
the initial spontaneity of the
rioting was replaced by pro-
tests clearly organized by the

j

PLO, cries for better explana-
tions were heard throughout
Israel.
Many pointed out that for
the first time ever the Arab
summit in Amman in late
1987 did not even discuss the
Palestinian problem, thus for-
cing the residents of the ad-
ministered territories to seek
their own solutions. Others
felt that the Palestinian
leadership in the West Bank
and Gaza is younger and

more militant than its
predecessors, whose political
awareness has been shaped
since Israeli rule in the ter-
ritories began in 1967.
Morris Draper, who recent-
ly completed his tour of duty
as UN consul in Jerusalem,
always considered the "status
quo" to be dangerous. "Israel
has to find some way to let
the Palestinian people
breathe a little," he said. "The
Palestinians, for their part,
must be more pragmatic .. .
If the Israelis offer some form
of autonomy, the Palestinians
should seize it, whatever its
implications. All too often in
the past, the Palestinians
have rejected opportunities."

If the Palestinians' tactics
have captured the world's
sympathy, they have also bit-
terly divided Israeli opinion.
To be sure, the Labor-Likud
national unity government
was built on an agreement to
