How Palestinian citizens in Israel understand their collective status has gone through several stages. Although granted citizenship in accord with United Nations stipulations, they were under military rule from 1948 to 1966, during which time the land, the culture, and popular politics were Judaized. Thereafter, Palestinians sought equality without challenging the state’s Jewish identity; however, the 1993 Oslo Accords led them to seek a democratic state of all its citizens. After the 2000 killing of 13 Palestinians in the Galilee and the Second Intifada, increasing awareness of their collective history led them to reject the two state paradigm.
