Shoruq Organization Releases a Legal Article Entitled “The Different Forms of Discrimination Against the Palestinian Minority in Israel.”

Shoruq Organization has recently published a legal article that thoroughly examines the various forms of discrimination that the Palestinian minority is subjected to, focusing on three areas of focus, which include political, social, and economic aspects.

“The establishment of Israel on historic Palestine after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war has been followed by the immediate implementation of multiple laws and policies that have systematically discriminated against and undermined the status of Palestinian Arabs, who could remain in their lands within the green line. The end of this war was accompanied by significant demographic changes, in which the Palestinian Arabs suddenly turned from being the majority into becoming a marginalized minority in Israel. This demographic change mainly occurred due to the Zionist militias’ actions, which led to the expulsion and fleeing of many Palestinian Arabs outside of the borders of the newly established state, significantly decreasing the Palestinian population. In the status-quo, there are approximately 1.5 million Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, which make up 20% of the total population. While Israel represents itself as the only democracy in the Middle East, in which it preserves the rights for all of its citizens, the Palestinian minority has been subjected to various forms of discrimination and suppression since its founding, which include, but are not exclusive to; social life, politics, and economy.”
