Islamic group aiding Arab Israelis

Islamic Movement provides key social services, while Arab parties struggle for representation.

    Israel's Arabs, who account for 20 per cent of the population, struggle with daily discrimination and living standards that are much lower than their fellow Jewish citizens.

    Arab political parties say they are struggling for representation in the government to defend the rights of the minority group in the country, but are failing to put up a united front. 

    Sherine Tadros reports from Cana in northern Israel on why the Islamic Movement is emerging as the only group effective at providing key social services for Arabs in the country.
