The wave of the uprisings also known as the “Arab Spring” was undoubtedly one of the most important and formative events in the history of the modern Middle East. This book examines the influence of these uprisings on the Arab society in Israel, especially focusing on the unique relationship between the Arab minority in Israel and the state. It offers a new perspective of how the instability in the Arab region and its dissolution affected the internal dynamics in Arab society in Israel and changed its attitude toward the state. The most important insight that emerges from this research is that the deep disappointment in the Arab region has led to a more pragmatic and rational attitude of the Arab minority in Israel towards the state.
