Book Description

This study examines how the Israeli legal system copes with two major issues. The first is the tension between the constitutional definition of Israel as both a Jewish state and a democracy committed to equal rights for all of its citizens. The second issue is the delicate position of a national minority in a state that since its establishment has been involved in a bitter conflict with the Palestinian nation to which that minority belongs.
