Raphael Israeli's "Green Crescent over Nazareth analyzes the rising tensions between Muslims and Christians in Nazareth, a traditionally Arab Christian city located in Israel. Volume 43 Number 3 -Loren D. Lybarger, California State University, Chico/ History of Religions, 02/2004. The copy of this that I read was a paperback published in the 1990s. I don't know if this hardback copy represents an updated version or simply a reprint.
Raphael Israeli (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) has produced a work detailing what he portrays as Muslim-Christian discord among the Palestinian citizens of Nazareth, Israel's largest Arab city. He begins with an examination of Nazareth's history, especially the modern era, and takes care to detail the traditionally important Christian presence in the town. Israeli believes that the episode serves as a warning not just to Israel's Christians but the Israeli body politic in general. The problem with this book is that politics in Nazareth are much more complicated than Israeli portrays.

Raphael Israeli8 de abril de 2014. The Rise of Israel: A History of a Revolutionary State. The state of Israel is one of the most controversial countries in the world. Yet, its unique creation and rise to power in 1948 has not been adequately explained either by its friends (mainstream Zionists) nor by its detractors (Arabists and post-Zionists).
by Raphael Israeli London: Frank Cass & C. 2002. As recently as 1995, the geographer Chad Emmett could write a study of Christians and Muslims in Nazareth and worry more about future relations between the two groups than about the continued existence of Christians in the town of Nazareth. Well, the events of December 1997 made the latter issue clear to those who had missed it earlier: that's when Islamists took over the plaza in front of the Basilica of the Annunciation, declared the area a waqf, then put up a fence and a tent as a stand-in for the future mosque to be built on the site.
I can begin this process by locating one such instance in a narrative published in The Delhi Gazette in December 1857, by J F Kitchen, Head Assistant to the Collector of Goregaon the Magistrate that a body of mutineers from the ‘3rd Cavalry’ were headed towards the city with the intention of ‘polish off Goregaon Christians’ - but it is largely characteristic of the narrative as a whole that the rebel ‘sowars’ (cavalrymen) are not glossed according to their religious affiliation.
