How One Israeli Organization Is Helping To Better The Lives of Israel’s Bedouin Population: A Fireside Chat with Ariel Viesel, Co-CEO Of Desert Stars

March 27, 2024

It’s a fact largely ignored by anti-Israel activists: that 20 percent of Israel’s population are Arabs, largely Muslim. They enjoy the same democratic rights as Israeli Jews, can vote and stand for election, and hold citizenship as Israelis.

The Bedouin of Israel’s south are part of this population, and they are unique in their own right, distinct from the Bedouin in Israel’s north, the Druze community in Israel, and the Jewish majority.

In this week’s podcast, we are joined by Ariel Viesel, the CO-CEO of Desert Stars, an Israeli organization that works to provide educational, vocational and other opportunities to members of Israel’s Bedouin population in the country’s south, and in so doing, help further integrate them into Israeli society, benefiting them, and Israel at large.
