Ideology is probably not separable from health policy analysis in any context, and this is even more the case when the health system in question is part of a constant state of geopolitical conflict. In Circles of Exclusion, Filc is clear about where he stands regarding the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, or with respect to political economy. In his view, Israel's physical presence—what he calls the occupation—in the West Bank is the primary driver of all that happens in the Palestinian health system or indeed in the Israeli health system as well.
