   schema:description "Settlements; intellectuals like the novelist Anton Shammas who, claiming all equal right to Israeli citizenship and the Hebrew language, demand the "de-judaization" of both; and inspired - and frustrating - dialogues between Jews and Arabs yearning for peace yet still locked into intractable positions. These fascinating confrontations, interspersed with Grossman's own uniquely perceptive commentary, present painful dilemmas which both Palestinian and Israeli."@en ;
   schema:description "Within israel's borders. Fully eighteen percent of Israelis are Arab; indeed, some areas of the Galilee and the south are almost entirely populated by Arabs. The intifadah has given these individuals a renewed awareness of their identity as Palestinians, yet their acquiescence in Israel's sovereignty sets them apart from their cousins over the Green Line. Who are the compatriots of a Palestinian Arab who is also an Israeli citizen? His or her fellow Palestinians in the."@en ;

With Jewish Israelis, on the other hand, Palestinian Israelis share national elections, a plumbing system, welfare and social security and medical insurance, but the majority's insistence that Israel is the Jewish State and the national homeland for the Jews of the world leads inevitably to the."@en ;

   schema:description "Discrimination that makes Palestinian Israelis second-class citizens in their own place. Grossman has recorded conversations among Israeli Arabs as well as their encounters with other Palestinians and Jewish Israelis, letting them articulate their own tortuous search for some third way.
