Dr. Danna Piroyansky, author of Ramle Remade: The Israelization of an Arab Town 1948-1967, discusses the very Israeli concept of ‘mixed cities’ – the result of government-sanctioned mixing of Jewish and Arab populations.

How did it come about in Ramle, a town in the south-eastern coastal plain that was 100 percent Arab Palestinian up until the 1948 War of Independence, and was subsequently populated with Jewish immigrants?
