Correction. Soldiers cannot arrest Israeli citizens whatever their religion. It just so happens that there aren't too many non Jewish Israeli citizens living in settlements in the West Bank. Hardly suprising is it? The soldiers could, of course, arrest then anyway and claim they could not determine citizenship. Perhaps we need a few Palestinian Arabs to dress up as Settlers to set a precedent?
