    I recently read an article in the JP that explained how large chunks of the Arab Israeli population in Israel pay no taxes. Why? 1. because they can get away with it (no one wants to bully them), and 2. because it symbolizes a kind of economic blow for the Palestinian cause (no uzis paid for with Arab tax dollars.) Alas, no schools either. As we in America well know, the tax base in closely linked to school facilities, resources and teachers. Dafna Golan doesn't mention any of this. In light of it, shouldn't we be applauding city officials for building 50 new classrooms in East Jerusalem last year? And for accommodating all but 16 Arab students who needed a spot? Bear in mind, too, that Arab-Israelis are entitled by law to Arabic-language instruction, with a different curriculum and a schedule that permits for Friday prayers and Muslim holidays. For these reasons, it's literally impossible to inegrate Arab and Jewish public schools. Is this apartheid or multiculturalism run amok?
