Several mixed Arab-Jewish cities in Israel—places like Haifa, Lod, Nazareth, Bat Yam and Akko, which had been extolled as models of coexistence—saw protests by their Arab residents turn into mob violence during the 11-day conflict with Hamas in May.
Who were the perpetrators of the violence? Has the fragile coexistence in these neighborhoods been shattered beyond repair? And what’s to prevent a recurrence of these attacks?
Filmed on-site, Ellie meets with the residents of these cities to answer these fundamental questions.
It also airs on the Jewish Broadcasting Service (JBS).
