Sanaa Alsarghali provides us with constitutional analysis regarding the Palestinian Basic Law and the role it plays during the 2007 Fatah-Hamas clash. She indicates that while the concept of the state of exception can shed light on the mechanisms of sovereign power, the Basic Law raises questions about the difference between states of exception, emergency, and necessity. She argues that Agamben theory does not always apply, and that state of exception can occur in exceptional states like Palestine. Alsarghali’s analysis relies on the power struggle and internal Palestinian politics without forgetting the role played by Israel -as an occupying force- and the international community in denying pure-Palestinian decision in democratic life in 2006. She uses “nested’ sovereignty to describe the internal power struggle that keeps state of exception until today.
