Full course description
One-time, online, 60 minute session
Israel’s Arab citizens comprise approximately 20 percent of the population, or 1.8 million people: Muslim, Christian, Druze and Circassian. As a group, they share national and familial connections to the Palestinian people in the West Bank, Gaza and elsewhere, but have a unique identity as citizens of Israel alongside the country’s Jewish majority. This session will be an overview of the issues facing Israel's citizens and the resources provided by The Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues.
