Many Arab citizens of Israel are facing a crackdown on freedom of expression and fear speaking out about the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas. They have been fired from their jobs or questioned by Israeli security for expressing their views or sympathy for the civilians killed in Gaza. Despite tensions between Jewish and Arab citizens, there has been no violence between the two groups during the war. Arab citizens of Israel identify with the Palestinians but see their future within the State of Israel. They want equal integration and good relations with Israeli Jews, but balancing this during war days is difficult.
