    "The Israeli ruling does not refer to its Arab citizens, or to any ethnicity". Leon, who do you think you're kidding? Some here who (like you) approve of discrimination are honest enough (unlike you) to accept it openly for what it is. "It refers to citizens of countries or entities at war with Israel". And of what ethnicity are these? Arab? Oh, what a coincidence! As a matter of historical fact, war with the Palestinians was accepted by Zionists from as early as the '20's as the inevitable precondition for the creation of their Jewish state on Palestinian land. The eviction of the Palestinians by "brutal violence" was pre-planned (read Ben-Gurion's correspondence, in which he is totally candid about this - in private). It was Israel's Zionist leaders who engineered war with those "countries or entities" you refer to, not the other way around. Start by facing that fact and there might be hope for the future. Otherwise none.
