This chapter considers how liberal multiculturalism relates to religious-minority groups that adhere to practices viewed as illiberal for which they seek religious accommodation, known as “multicultural entrapment.” This chapter reflects upon how multicultural entrapment can be remedied or contained. The Palestinian-Arab minority presents a singular illustration of acute multicultural entrapment, since the minority group is actively encouraged to maintain its religious identity and concurrently, no inclusive civic identity is fostered in Israel. Its case study will be employed here to explore the jurisdictional authority accorded to the Palestinian-Arab religious communities in Israel in matters of family law. This chapter suggests that the acute state of multicultural entrapment can be more effectively dealt with through more nuanced and particular measures rather than criminal sanctions; these include the adoption of similarly situated family law reforms, further judicial accountability, transparency through publication and concurrent jurisdiction as competing jurisdiction.
