    "A true democracy doesn`t discriminate against a segement of its citizens because of their religion or race." - Khalid The same words were uttered during the race riots in America in the '60s and 70's. While sometimes true, it was sometimes not. It became the norm in the '80s to cry racism for any action against a black person, even in line with the duty to protect its citizens. Many criminals and gangs have cried racism for being arrested for drugs, robbery, and violent attacks. The same is true in your words, Khalid. You cry racism for actions against a group that has outwardly spoken against the very State they belong to, that they receive benefits from, that they often fail to pay taxes to. In the PA, you know them as "fifth columns". Infact, more of the "fifth columns" in the PA areas have been tortured and killed than in Israel. Here, you mention 13 (one being Palestinian) in the 2000 riots in Israel. Over the years, many more have been killed at the hands of your terrorists based solely on rumors. Even the Human Rights Watch has decried the PA actions in this regards. The Arab still has more rights in Israel than in the Arab country - as does the Christian, the Jew, The Druze (whom Muslims think of as blasphemous), the Samarian, the Bi'hai (Muslims also consider this group blasphemous and they were thrown out of Iran)....
