    False charges by any opposition group denouncing either the right, or the left, should not be permitted if they are malicious lies and libelous. Otherwise, criticism must be considered a valuable tool in perfecting government and the military. A right to have a Jewish homeland and government is now under fire as inherently "racist" against its Arab minority. This is because Israel is a theocracy built on democratic principles and not an actual democracy. Having the vote, and having true representation are not the same. Of course Israel is NOT racist--but only a bicameral Knesset with a lower chamber of Arabs will rectify the problem. Then Arab citizens can be as many or more in number than the Jews--and all can have a vote and the Jewish cultural homeland will not be threatened by an expanding Arab population but will be augmented by it.
