The Arab Minority in Israel, 1967–1991

This chapter discusses the political organization of the Arab minority in Israel from 1967—1981. The Arabs was not able to achieve any significant degree of political organization during the first decade of Israel as a state because of the absence of an experienced political leadership, the shock of suddenly becoming a minority, and unfamiliarity with the Hebrew language. It took a second generation of Arabs to realize the importance of political organization and activity. This development is attributed to the Arab's acquisition of a broader education, learning of the Hebrew language and the abolition of the Military Administration in 1966. This chapter explains the challenges and accomplishments of the Arab minority in the political arena until 1981.
