    Dan, First of all, Israeli Arabs have the right to vote and vote primarily for Arab parties who don't join government coalitions. Here in the US, most minorities (such as Blacks) vote Democratic and have little power. The result, less spending in inner cities than suburban areas. Palestinians in the territories don't have the right to vote - and shouldn't. If they did, Israel would have annexed them and you would be screaming. (Don't deny it). Israel doesn't treat its citizens differently. The comparison with South Africa is that Israel is the equivalent of LeSotho. LeSotho is a separate country reserved by the British for the Sotho ethnic group. No one tried to force LeSotho into South Africa after the end of Apartheid. Like Israel, LeSotho was established before 1949 (4th Geneva Convention) and its sovereignty is unquestioned under international law. As I've said before, despite the protestations of the Anti-Israelis on this Talkback, International Law protects Israel

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
