The shortcomings of Arab Palestinian towns and villages (hereafter Palestinian localities) in terms of economic development raise a number of observations about the causes and barriers that stand in the way of development, eliciting several questions: whether or not the geopolitical situation where the Arab Palestinian (hereafter Palestinian) community has become a minority in Israel with spatial and functional control imposed by the Jewish majority and the State of Israel is responsible for the low socioeconomic conditions? Are the cultural and structural conditions of a community that has undergone distorted stages of false urbanization, fluctuating between tradition and modernization, behind the underdevelopment of the community? (Khamaisi, 2012).
