Collective Identity and Readiness for Social Relations with Jews among Palestinian Arab Students at the David Yellin Teacher Training College in Israel
Diab, Khansaa; Mi'ari, Mahmoud
Intercultural Education, v18 n5 p427-444 Dec 2007
This paper argues that the two national components of identity among Palestinian Arab students in Israel--the Arab component and the Palestinian component--are strong, while the civil Israeli component is very weak. This paper also argues that although social relations between Arab students and Jewish students are very limited, the readiness of Arab students for professional and social relations with Jewish students is greater than the perceived readiness of Jewish students for social relations with Arab students. Correlation coefficients between collective identity and readiness for social relations with Jews reveal that there is no connection between the components of collective identity of Arab students and their familiarity with Jewish students and readiness to have professional and social relations with them.
