This chapter sketches the profile of the Stand-Tall Generation in light of recent events and uses this historical perspective to offer a different vision for Israel's future. Israel' s main dilemma concerning its Palestinian citizens is whether to include or control them. The discussion includes the eruption in late September 2000 of Intifadat al-Aqsa, which was an event of historic proportion. Unlike the outbreak of the first intifada in December 1987, which came on the backdrop of a prolonged stalemate, Intifadat al-Aqsa was a reaction to concrete initiatives and processes. Essentially, it was the Palestinian response to the fundamental flaws of the political developments known as the Oslo process that had shaped their lives since the beginning of the 1990s.

Keywords:   Palestinian community, Israel, Palestinian citizens, Stand-Tall Generation, Intifadat al-Aqsa
