The article identifies two distinct concepts of group rights in respect of the Palestinian-Arab minority that developed under Israel's constitutional definition as a “Jewish and democratic” state. One concept labeled as the “thin” concept pertains to the Palestinian-Arab minority as one national group, and a second concept labeled as the “thick” concept pertains to the Palestinian-Arab minority as a cluster of religious communities. In introducing these two concepts, the article also identifies the limits of recognizing the individual rights of Palestinian-Arab citizens when considered in light of these two concepts of group rights.
