While many jump on the bandwagon and holler racism when it comes to a perceived or real lack of benefits, they are rather vociferous at the same time about not being bound by obligations of the country. When one gives out a shrill cry that they cannot be expected to to offer up allegiance to the country or to serve either in the Army or in it's place Sherut l'am one has to consider the motivation carefully before pronouncing. Citizenship is supposed to offer universal rights, and at the same time universal obligations. When it is accepted that there is no universality of obligations and civic responsibility on the part of all citizens, it should be expected that it isn't automatic for there to be a universality of rights. Yes Israel is a democracy, one which has it's principles tested and stretched to the max on a daily basis since her inception. This is not a black or white issue that falls under the heading of rights are rights are rights.
