Crossing Continents meets the creators and cast of 'Arab Labour,' a prime time Israeli TV comedy that sees the humorous side of Arab lives in the Jewish state.
Israel's recent military operation in Gaza and last month's elections have polarised relations between Jewish Israelis and the 20% Arab minority.
Reporter Mukul Devichand looks at the dark humour and moral dilemmas of an Arab population caught between feelings of Palestinian brotherhood and a determination to remain Israeli citizens.
BBC Radio 4's Crossing Continents was broadcast on Thursday, 19 March, 2009 at 1102 GMT and repeated on Monday, 23 March, 2009 at 20:30 GMT.
