About the Authors
  • While the international community and regional powers in the Middle East are focussing on finding a solution to Israel's 'external problem' - the future of the occupied West Bank and Gaza strip - another political conflict is emerging on the domestic Israel scene: the question of the future status of Israel's Palestinian minority within the 1967 borders. The Palestinian minority in Israel are currently experiencing a new trend in their political development. Here, Ghanem and Mustafa term that development 'The Politics of Faith', referring to the demographic, religious and social transformations among the Palestinian minority that have facilitated and strengthened their self-confidence. Such heightened self-confidence is also the basis for key changes in their cultural and social life, as well as political activity. This book traces the emergence of a new and diverse generation of political leadership, how Palestinian society has developed and empowered itself within Israel, and the politicization of Islamic activism in Israel.

    • Presents a new and fresh look into the politics of Palestinian minority, using 'The Politics of Faith' as a key tool with which to understand recent developments
    • Uses comprehensive data to provide an up-to-date study on the latest developments among the Palestinian minority in Israel
    • Considers the 'positive' and promising developments concerning the future of the Israeli-Palestine conflict
