Abstract:
This study examines the relations between the state and an ethnic minority in Israel. In focusing upon the Arab region of the Little Triangle, the study analyzes the state's policies and the impact that they have had upon the jurisdictional boundaries and autonomy of Arab local government. This study highlights the uniqueness of Israel as a bi-national state and proposes two models for majority-minority, and central-local government relationships in Israel. At the heart of these models are the granting of relative autonomy to the Arab citizens in Israel, and a move toward changing the essence of Israel from a "Jewish State" to the "citizens' state". These models will promote stability, cooperation, and understanding between Arabs and Jews in Israel, particularly in border regions, such as the Little Triangle.
