Problems of Identity
This chapter discusses the identity problem of the Arab minority in Israel. A study suggests that the identity of Arabs in Israel classified into four concentric circles, which may be labelled Israeli, Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic. Arabs perceive their identity as a mixture of these four concentric circles, and this is responsible for their identity crisis. The Arabs cannot define their own collective belonging and group relationship, but they need to deal with the challenge of coping with the problems of identity because it is a central facet to the politicization and radicalization that they are currently undergoing.
