The limits of dissent : Palestinian media in a Jewish ethnocracy.

McGahern, U. (2011) 'The limits of dissent : Palestinian media in a Jewish ethnocracy.', Journal of Arab and Muslim media research., 4 (1). pp. 79-93.


This article examines the impact of new political communication strategies upon state policy towards Palestinian Arab media in Israel. While the majority of studies on Palestinian Arab media in Israel have tended to focus upon patterns of media production or consumption by the minority, little attention has been given to the relationship between the structural dimensions of power and inequality in society and the development of Palestinian counter-hegemony in Israel. This article examines the location of Palestinian Arab media within the broader system of Jewish ethnocratic control in Israel and argues that despite the diverse range of modern media at its disposal, the Palestinian Arab minority – together with its media – remains marginalized and limited in its ability to affect political change within Israeli society.
