This chapter analyzes two instances of Israeli land segregation policy in the township of Katsir; in the first, an Arab couple petitioned the Supreme Court of Israel against their rejection, on grounds of ethnicity, of residency entitlement; in the second, Jewish residents appealed against a covert deal by which an Arab family had acquired property rights in Katsir via a Jewish intermediary. In both cases, the advocacy of cause lawyers has illustrated how major questions of state policy are being decided, not by the state, but by activism at municipal level.
