Arab Political Organizations within the Israeli State

Adam Saouli

This article studies the political organization of the Arab minority in Israel up to the time of the recent disturbances. The primary concern of the article is to shed light on the development of Arab political organization and Arab political significance on Israeli politics. The paper examines four main research components: (1) nature and scope of Arab political organizations, (2) Arab-Jewish relations in Israel, (3) level and significance of Arab political organizations, and (4) impact of the Arab-Israeli conflict on Arab political organizations and Arab-Jewish relations in the Israeli state. Until the current year there were indications that Arab political influence within the Israeli state was becoming more evident. The future cannot be foreseen at the present time.
