Democrats Without Identity

Auther : Mahmoud Mi’ari

This survey research deals with the collective identity of Palestinians and its relationship to their attitudes toward political democracy, and to several background variables such as gender, religion, religiosity, place of residence, schooling, family income, and politicization. The findings show that Palestinian national identity is the strongest among all identities, and that Palestinians national identity is the strongest among all identities, and that Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip support both abstract and actual democracy. The findings also show that actual democratic attitudes correlate negatively with Palestinian, Arab, religious, local, and clan identities. This may indicate that real democrats in Palestine are detached from their society or are rebellious against it. The data for this research were collected during October 1997 from a sample of 1410 persons representing the adult population of the West bank and Gaza Strip.

Keywords: collective identity, democratic attitudes.
