Ami Pedahzur looks at the theoretical issue of how a democracy can defend itself from those wishing to subvert or destroy it without being required to take measures that would impinge upon the basic principles of the democratic idea, with a case study of the Israeli response to Jewish extremism.


Introduction; 1. The Israeli response to extremism; 2. The state's response to extremism; 3. The Israeli response to extremism: The social sphere; 4. The role of 'civil society' in the 'defending democracy'; 5. The 'defending democracy': From the 'militant route' to the 'immunised' route?


Ami Pedahzur is Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at the University of Haifa, Israel
