Yes, Israel is home to a large number of non-Jews, but the majority culture is what counts. Hebrew language is the official language. Arabic is certainly important, but then so is Russian. Are we to make the language spoken by every large group official? Hebrew is enough. English or Arabic should not be official. Jewish holidays are the State holidays (like Christmas and Easter in the Christian World and 'Id al-Adha in the Muslim World), with all due consideration to non-Jewish holidays as well. No national autonomy for any other ethnic group. Do Mexicans and Koreans in the US enjoy autonomy? Likewise, there should be only one State-supported system of education; no Orthodox, no Haredi, no Muslim, no Christian, just secular State schools. Anybody who wants an Orthodox Jewish or Christian or Muslim education - should find a private school.
