Arab Identity & Building a Shared Society

In this thought-provoking lecture (10:13) from the Shalom Hartman Institute, Rawnak Natour, an Arab-Israeli activist, discusses the factors that contribute to her complex identity and the challenges of building a shared society in Israel. She emphasizes the importance of the Arabic language, connection with the wider Arab world and identification with the Palestinian people in her national and cultural identity, describing how this sets her at odds with the Israeli society. She criticizes discrimination and inequality in Israeli society, advocating for equal distribution and access to government resources and services, and individual and communal rights for Arab citizens.
