Jewish–Arab Brotherhood (Hebrew: אחווה יהודית-ערבית‎, Ahva Yehudit-Aravit; Arabic: الأخوة اليهودية العربية‎) was a short-lived, one-man political party in Israel.


The party was formed on 22 October 1968 during the sixth Knesset, when Elias Nakhleh broke away from Progress and Development.[1]

For the 1969 elections Nakhleh merged the party into Cooperation and Brotherhood, effectively swapping parties with Jabr Muadi, who had begun the session as a member of Cooperation and Brotherhood, then left to set up the Israeli Druze Faction before joining Progress and Development.
