    You wrote----"You fail to see that there are Jews and Arabs all over Israel and that they all deserve a proper education. It`s not an issue confined to Jerusalem. It`s proof of your ignorance about the country and the system. These are the funding figures for 2001 published by the Central Bureau of Statistics in 2004. Each Arab student in Israel received resources-after teachers salaries had been excluded-of $150 a year, less than a quarter of the sum ,$740, spent on Jewish pupils in secular State schools.The State discriminated yet further in allocations to Jewish religious schools, where each student was getting resources in excess of $2200, or twelve times as much as an Arab pupil.This has been achieved by a duplicitous system of double funding that allows the religious schools to apply for money from both the Education Ministry and the Religious Affairs Ministry. Almost no funds are available for the funding of non Jewish religious schools. As a result of this, many Jewish parents, including secular ones are sending their children to extremist religious schools so that they can benefit from the higher budget. Democracy--right.
