Summary This book 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, such as human rights, freedom of speech, and the freedom to form political organizations. In this book institutional and social frameworks are incorporated into the discussion of the 'paradox' in an attempt to provide an answer to the question: is there a golden path which can reconcile between the democratic polity's need to defend itself and, at the same time, maintain responsibility to protect and safeguard the basic right of its citizens?
Subject Democracy -- Israel.
Jewish radicals -- Israel.
Israel -- Politics and government.
