Abstract

This dissertation looks at Israeli hegemony by focusing on the ideas and activities of Israeli-Jewish leftist groups opposing state violence towards Palestinians. Regardless of their self-perception as being against political mainstream in Israeli civil society, I set out to show how many of the discourses and practices of these movements reproduce the structural conditions for such violence. By analyzing on a meso- and micro-level Israeli leftist groups' perceptions of state violence towards Palestinians, this research contributes to studies of Israeli-Palestinian relations by complementing works on state-led Othering discourses with a study that acknowledges the complexity of Israeli socio-political structure.
