    Israelis don't have a perfect society but how most of them have coped with decades of violence and hostility towards the Jewish State by Palestinians and Arab/Islamic countries round about that don't accept their presence has been quite remarkable. Try doing what many Palestinians have been allowed to do in Israel in an Arab country as a Jew and see what happens to you. Have the Palestinians, et al peacefully deal with Israel and see how much more remarkably Israeli society overall will deal with them. Please read my questions again and try to answer them, not avoid them. It might take you planning a trip to the Middle East first to learn something firsthand about the situation before you post.
