"...we should always remember that lack of tolerance, discrimination and segregation is what brought about all the pain our people have endured for decades all around the World." Beautiful statement, if then you didn't go on to imply that "Arabs" can't be democratic. If any Israeli hasn't learned what democracy and equality is, whether it's right-wing Jews or anyone else, then I'd say Israel's democratic principles definitely need strengthening.
