A term developed by Israeli military strategist Yehoshafat Harkabi to describe the destruction of a state, that is, the Arab goal of destroying Israel. Between 1949 and 1967, Israel was prepared for peace with the Arab states on the basis of the 1949 armistice lines with minor modifications, but after the events of May and June 1967, including the Six-Day War (1967), the stark reality of "politicide" began to enter into these considerations, and many argued for a need to change the security situation.
   See also Arab-Israeli Conflict.
