This study aims at shedding the light on the historical background of the racist political ideology of the Zionist movement and its principles and actions commensurating with that ideology and thought. Furthermore, it reveals the different means used by the Israeli authorities to uproot and dispossess the majority of the Palestinian people after the declaration of the state of Israel, and in particular, after the occupation of 1967. It also shows the different measures these authorities used against Palestinian citizens living under occupation in a systematic manner aiming at creating unbearable life conditions leading to both forced displacement and migration of many Palestinians. These Palestinians are considered, under the rules of international humanitarian law as "protected persons," and Israel's aggressive and brutal methods against them are considered grave breaches of international law tantamount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. The study also examines the newly issued Military Order No. 1650 which entered into force in April 13, 2010 and shows its goals at top of which is to legitimize deportation of some other categories of Palestinians and foreign sympathizers who are in solidarity with the Palestinian People.
