ABSTRACT
The article discusses community engagement and political activism within Israeli's colonial community from the 1920s through the early 2010s, through examining the Palestinian Student Movement in Israeli universities. The relationship between the Zionist colonization of Palestine and the social marginality of Palestinians living in Israel, including the latter's putative status as second-class citizens and Israel's establishment as a Jewish state, is discussed. An overview of the collective-national identity of Israeli Palestinian students is provided.
