Annexation of Territories After the Six-Day War

Although the Gaza Strip, as is true of the West Bank, has not been formally annexed by Israel, its eventual annexation remains not only the official policy of the governing Likud Party, but also of the more liberal Labor Party, although the Labor Party has indicated a willingness to soften its position in return for a guarantee of peace (BarIllan, 1988). The governing Likud Party insists, however, that regardless of negotiations between Israel and the Arab states, and whether or not the Gaza Strip is ever formally annexed, Israel will not relinquish control of the territory (BarIllan, 1988).

The foregoing discussion indicates that the real question related to the annexation of territories seized by Israel in the SixDay War is not why it has not annexed all of the territories, but, rather why it has not annexed the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, in view of the facts that it has declared that (1) the West Bank is an integral part of the State of Israel, and (2) Israel will never relinquish control over the Gaza Strip. In the remainder of this research, both the internal factors and the external factors which may explain Israel's decision to, thus far, not annex the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are examined.
