Israel's democracy y grants liberal civic rights to all its citizens, no matter if it is jew, christian or arab. Arab citizens have more liberal and cultural rights in Israel than in any other arab country. The question is about newcomers and what is demanded from them. In Israel the demand is oath of loyalty to the character of the state. Take it or leave it. In the Netherlands a DVD is presented to newcomers in where its is shown what Dutch society is about. Lesbians and homosexuals. And what about of I am a pius Muslim. ??? Take it or leave it. Holland is a leading country in the most drastics process of civic national integration, not just learning the language but learning Dutch history and culture in order to apply for citizenship. And what about if I dont want to learn your stupid history to become a citizen. ??? Take it or leabe it. What is the difference to give an oath of loyalty to the nation of the jewish people? It is easier and more practical to pledge an oath than to learn your history and accept your national values .
