ABSTRACT
The article presents a study carried out to assess the construction of the political identity of Jewish and Arab adolescents in Israel. It also observes the patterns of inter-generational continuity and change between Arab and Jewish families in Israel. There is a attitudinal differences between Jews and Arabs in Israel, whose relations are complicated not only by majority or minority status but also by the fact that the Arab minority is part of a still larger majority in the Middle East that is hostile to the state of Israel. The data used in the study was gathered from a survey of 600 parent and their Children. An adolescent son or daughter, aged 12-19 was interviewed in each of 400 Jewish families in Jerusalem and 200 Arab families in Nazareth. The results suggest that Israeli Arabs express more hostility towards the Jews than vice versa, perceive more hostility than the Jews admit, but are more eager for inter-communal encounters than the Jews. Politically, the two communities have strongly opposed attitudes towards Palestinian self-determination, strong enough to lead the Arabs to oppose political censorship in the mass media, even when affirming moral censorship.
