The Six-Day War of June 1967 between Israel and Egypt, Syria, and Jordan represented a major watershed in the Israeli-Arab confrontation and heralded the ‘Palestinization’ of the conflict. After the war, attention focused on the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and on the Palestinian struggle for liberation. It was only natural to expect that the opposition to Israeli rule of the territories would be led by the Arab leadership in Jerusalem, the historical capital of Pales- tine, whose residents had traditionally played a major role in the social, cultural, historical, and above all religious history of the region.
