THE INTRICACY OF DIVERSITY

Israel is a mosaic of 70 nations. Each minority is an asset. Arabs, Christians, Druzes and Beduins represent 20% of the Israeli nation. Those minorities are proud to be part of the Israeli experience. They are an added value. They share their culture, language and traditions. They make Israel vibrant and energetic. Zeidan  Atashi, a Druze leader is a charismatic figure of this success. Fayez Azzam in a philosophical, cultural and identity registrars adds his own imprint to the construction of this proud national identity. The same is true for those two energetic Beduins leaders who help the women of their community gain their pride by contributing with their work to the success of the people of the South of Israel.
