    Dr. Arens sounds reasonable today. Who, but fanatic transferrists, can object to integrating Israeli Arab citizens into Israeli society thus reducing their sense of alienation from the State? But don't we know the hidden face of Dr. Arens? He is for an indefinite continuing Occupation of the Territories. (The man was also against relinquishing the Sinai in return for peace, and against leaving Lebanon.) So tell me Mr. Hyde: What will cause more trouble with the Israeli Arab citizens, "talking" about relinquishing part of their living areas to Palestine, or continuing the Occupation and suppression of their brothers across the Green line? The conflict with the Palestinians is the biggest cause of Arab alienation from Israel. The Arab Israelis are their brothers' keepers. When the Intifada broke out, there were support demonstrations across the country, and the police killed 13 Arabs in the process. Conclusion: Better to live with a one faced visible monster than a hidden one.
