Palestinians in Israel considers a key issue commonly ignored: that of the growing Palestinian minority within Israel itself. What the Israeli right-wing calls 'the demographic problem' Ben White identifies as 'the democratic problem'. Israel defines itself not as a state of its citizens, but as a Jewish state, this privileging of one ethno-religious group will undermine attempts to find a lasting peace.
