The Koenig Report and Israeli Policy Towards the Palestinian Minority, 1965-1976: Old Wine in New Bottles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Koenig Report-named after its main author Israel Koenig, then the North District Commissioner-is comprised of a peculiar reading of the status of Palestinians in Israel and recommendations regarding the State's policy towards the minority. This Report, leaked to the Israeli newspaper Al-Hamishmar and published on Sep 7, 1976, is the first publicly available document, which shows that policies of discrimination and containment to which the Palestinian-citizens have been subjected since 1948, reflect planning and deliberations at the policy-making circles.
