    Although this may appear as a straightforward case of discrimmination, I would like to point out that a)Jews would not be welcomed to live in Israeli Arab towns b)almost all small communities in Israel have acceptance commities and if you don't fit the community profile you will not be accepted. So, c) if I wanted to move to a small town as a religious Jew for quality of life and co-existence reasons, I would not be welcomed. The secular population would not want a religious Jew living with them. Also, if a secular Jew applied to a religious community, he/she would likewise not be accepted. Now, if we want to reexamine the whole system, we Israelis would have to be willing to give up our prejuidice and hatred of each other. Are you ready to do that? My impression from the tent protests and the problems with the haredim in Beit Shemesh is that Israelis hate each other too much to change this cultural aspect.
