The Arab Minority in Israel: Open and Hidden Processes

Abstract:

Israeli Arabs constitute some 20% of the general population – a percentage that has remained steady since 1948, despite massive waves of Jewish aliyah. Because the Arab population growth rate is greater than the Jewish one, Israel’s Jewish nature could be endangered once sources of Jewish immigration dry up. Together with Israeli Arab refusal to integrate into Israeli political parties, and their insistence on maintaining separate linguistic and educational systems, this will perpetuate the growing gap between the two populations.
