SUMMARY POINTS
The ‘Judaization of the Galilee’ refers to Israeli state and regional policies aimed at increasing the
proportion of Jewish residents in relation to Palestinians in the Galilee, an area in the north of thecountry which retained a sizeable Palestinian population after 1948.
Judaizing the Galilee is just one element of Israel’s regime of control over its Palestinian citizens, who
face systematic discrimination.
Palestinian citizens are routinely described as constituting a ‘demographic threat’.
 Land expropriation and the establishment of Jewish communities have been the two main methodsused for this Judaization process.Issues facing Palestinian citizens of Israel are far less familiar to observers in the West than Israelipolicies in the Occupied Territories.The c
laim that Israel is ‘the only democracy in the Middle East’ needs to be challenged by the facts of 
consistent, cross-party policies by successive Israeli governments aimed at ensuring Jewish hegemonyvis-à-vis the Palestinians, in the areas under its control.
