    The spirit of your article is praiseworthy, calling urgent attention to the non-democratic sentiments and societal structure which the rightwing Israelis, and pro-allegiance oath rabbis-- have toward their Arab compatriots. But your analysis of the problem awaits a bold step by a new leadership. There must be a movement endorsing a bicameral knesset, one with a lower house representing Israel’s Arabs and giving them a “confederated” voice. Israel must become a confederation with its Arab population having power through a legislative chamber to affect all policy, except perhaps war. Only when the Israeli Arabs have genuine legislative input will Jewish leaders be sympathetic to their interests. If they vote for their own representatives in a “lower chamber” (the British model of the House of Commons), the entire issue of whether Israel can be Jewish when Arab voters exceed their voting number, goes away. I speak as an ardent Zionist deeply committed to a secure Israel, but against the non-Democratic theocracy she has become.
