Our exclusive focus is on one of these conflicts-the profound internal rift among Israeli Jews over the Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza. We are especially interested in the role of the national religious settlers and the Israeli government's response to them. These settlers lead the movement and are dominant actors in the internal conflict. The current controversies within Israel regarding Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's "unilateral initiative," which was not the product of a negotiation with Palestinians, demonstrate the importance of understanding the internal conflict within Israel and the dominant role of the leaders of the settlement movement
