Yes they are full citizens of the state of Israel. Same rights as anyone with one exception .... the Arab political parties are not allowed to join the majority coalition of the ruling party.

They can vote for any Jewish political party but the Arab political parties have no political power. Zilch. Nada.

I've been torn about this since I lived there in the mid 80's. It's definitely discrimination based on religion. That is not what we believe and its not democracy at its finest.

In the middle east the past matters. When I was over there I worked on the project to record the stories and experiences on the Holocaust survivors. Sad to the bottom of your soul tragedy's that I will carry around with me to the day I become word food.

And I guess that's why I'm willing to support a democracy that only allows Jews to determine its path as a nation. After 2000+ years of persecution and death, they have a right to determine their own path.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
