Role Play: CC (Jer.) 8047/99 Badawi v. State of Israel (Judgment of January 1, 2007)

The first Intifada pushed Israeli society into an identity crisis. The link between the Bible stories and modern Zionism is exists also in the story of David and Goliath. In this battle, Israel has always pictured itself in the role of David. The popular uprising of the Palestinians, which pitted unarmed civilians, graffiti-spraying youths and stone-throwing children against the strongest military in the Middle East threatened this picture, down to the visual level.
