The Palestinians in Israel: Political orientation and aspirations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article analyzes the results of surveys conducted in recent years that investigated the political orientation of the Palestinian citizens of Israel and their satisfaction with their Israeli citizenship. The data clearly indicate that the Palestinians in Israel are satisfied with their level of individual modernization but not with the level of collective change in the situation of their group. They also show that for the most part they want to continue to be citizens of Israel but do not accept its ethnocratic character that shows preference for the Jews and demand full equality in the state, manifested in its conversion to a binational state which they share with the Jewish majority.
