Arab Political Organizations within the Israeli State
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.
