    Your position is: Certainly, I feel closer to Israeli culture and values than to what's going on in Arab nations. Hence result our expectancies. If some people use Israel as the spearhead against Islam, those who see themselves in the tradition of some sort of enlightenment, ask Israel to do the job of the great educator, treating Arabs as children and then blaming Israel for problems occurring while doing the job of the great educator. On Purim last year, I was still working as a teacher and stood before a class in which Jewish, Arab and other pupils stayed together. For only this lesson I had put on a T-shirt with the emblems of the IDF. When handling some chemicals, a Moroccan pupil said: "I hope you'll die from it like a dog." I didn't punish him then, but a loud "WHAT???" escaped me nonetheless. It was as if the fact that I wore this T-shirt head turned me into a deadly enemy. We cannot only ask Israel to only FUNCTION. The Israelis have an own life and reasons to be afraid.
