With just one day to go until the Israeli parliamentary election, FRANCE 24 visited the city of Haifa, often described as a model of religious co-existence. But some of the city’s Arab inhabitants say they feel like second-class citizens.
Haifa, on Israel’s northern coast, has been portrayed as a model of co-existence – a place where Jews, Muslims and Christians live side by side in perfect harmony.
But despite efforts to promote this co-existence, parts of Haifa’s Arab population say they feel they are treated as second-class citizens, and are being discriminated against.
Israeli Arabs currently constitute the third-largest block in the Israeli parliament, but it remains difficult for them to blend in as rightwing parties accuse them of being traitors, intent on destroying the Jewish state.
