The Israeli establishment and the Israeli Arabs during the first intifada

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is impossible to assess the Israeli government activity vis-à-vis the Israeli Arabs during the 1987-92 uprising in the West Bank and Gaza as a success. In terms of policies of active initiative, there were none. Two ministers did take active measures in addressing the development gaps, but that did not deal with the issue of preventing the emergence of a de facto Israeli Arab autonomous system. In shaping passive policies, the response was far from conveying the message to the Israeli Arabs that as full Israeli citizens they were expected to keep a distance from organizations dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state.
