    Gideon, I agree with you very often but this time, you missed a good opportunity to shut your mouth. In most Arab states, the President has to be muslim. It's written in the constitution. NEVER a Jew would be appointed prime minister or president in those countries. Even in moderate and liberal ones like Tunisia or Morocco (which according to you is an model of coexistence ) it's impossible. By the way, there are almost no Jews left in the Arab world. In Israel however, you still have more than 20% of the population which is not Jewish. Unfortunately, Jewish nationalism has caused the exodus of the Palestinian people, but Arab nationalism has cleared the Arab world from most of its minorities. Those who remained, like the Berbers in North Africa of the Kurds in Syria had to struggle to fight compelled assimilation. Gideon, it's a good to fight the occupation but don't try to replace Ilan Pappe. Don't lose your credibility. Me neither, I wouldn't like to see Tibi becoming prime minister. It's not because he's an Arab, but rather because if he were given the possibility, he would merge and delude Israel in a Palestinian binational state. However, I would be delighted to see an Arab Mk from Meretz or the Labour party (even if he's not a zionist) being elected Prime minister of Israel.
