Review of the Year (2005) in Foreign Countries: Israel

By Hanan Sher

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2005

The Palestinian resistant that began in late September 2000 ended in 2004. The barrier built on the West Bank to keep out potential suicide bombers was declared illegal by the International Court of Justice. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon pushed through a plan to disengage unilaterally from Palestinian areas by leaving the Gaza Strip and giving up four settlements in the northern West Bank. A decline in terrorist attacks and the success of free-market policies resulted in a heightened sense of personal security.
