On July 14, three Palestinian citizens of Israel from the town of Umm al-Fahm attacked two police officers outside Al-Haram al-Sharif, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, prompting weeks of unrest in occupied Jerusalem.This included the November 2015 ban on the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, a social and political Islamist organization that had formed a main pillar of Palestinian political engagement since the 1980s.1948 Palestinians, about 20 percent of the Israeli population, are the Palestinians who remained under Israeli rule after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. In recent years, Palestinians in Israel have become more aware of their exclusionary status. The Israeli government has been increasingly restricting the political space for their activism and alienating the community by cracking down on its leadership. In response to the ban, Palestinian leadership in Israel organized various demonstrations in multiple towns.The state's backlash against the Palestinian community in Israel since July and its increased discriminatory attitude toward the community over the past few years have made the community frustrated with the elected Palestinian-Israeli leadership and the Israeli political system as a vehicle for political action.
