Nazimek, Jeanne Marie
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis focuses on the leadership, both internal and external, of the Palestinian people in the occupied territories of Israel, in an effort to determine if any internal political groups exist that are capable of challenging the authority of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). Background information includes the rise of Palestinian nationalism and the history of politics in the West Bank and Gaza Strip since the 1967 War. The primary factor influencing the current leadership transformations is the Palestinian uprising or intifada, that began in December of 1987 and continues today. The internal leadership of the uprising, including the Unified National Leadership of the Uprising (UNLU), the Islamic fundamentalist groups, and the traditional notables, are all considered as possible challenges to the PLO's leadership. The external PLO leadership, its primary left wing components and their relationship to the intifada, are also presented.
