There is some confusion about the Israel Constiution. Israel's parliamentary democracy is based on the British model with its symbolic head of state and its prime minister leading the government. Like Britain Israel has an established faith and two 'ecclesiastical authorities'or chief rabbis in place of two archbishops. Just as Britain has many faiths and several languages, so does Israel. This no more makes Israeli Arabs second class citizens than Jews and Catholics are second class UK citizens.
