Nazareth, with a population of about 100,000 is the biggest Arab city in Israel. It is the heart of the Galilee, one of the richest agricultural areas in the country. The people living in Nazareth, like the nearly 1.4 million Arabs in Israel, are Christian and Muslim citizens of Israel. As non Jewish Israeli citizens in a “Jewish State”, they face considerable discrimination. They have to continually struggle for equality – for good quality education, for jobs, for housing and for social services. Jonathan Cook is a celebrated journalist who lives and raises his family in Nazareth. He will explain what Israel “as a Jewish state” means in practice for the non-Jews who live there.
