The present paper describes attitudes of Israeli Arabs toward the presence of two groups of noncitizen workers in the Israeli labor market: Palestinians and overseas foreign workers. Specifically, we analyze perceptions of socioeconomic threat derived from the presence of these two groups and feelings of social distance toward them. These two measures are considered as a good barometer of prejudice against out-group populations.
