    So levi thinks it is marginal if one 18 year old puts his life in danger daily for his country and another studies in a yeshiva and goes home for lunch. Levi bemoans that these are the poorest of society also. Well duh! They do not go to work on principle so tough to make it to the middle class only on government handouts. Levi is so concerned for the Arab minority but does not view them as having any responsibility to serve even their own communities. Levy is patronizing and elitist to this citizenry. They should be equal in all things as citizens as of right and as of obligation. Without paternalistic leftist "protecting" their right to inferior "otherness". It is not hate but a desire for a fare and balanced social compact. This is a country with enormous threats and equally enormous achievements and all its citizens should partake in both. As to labor migrants, at least you admit these are not refugees but rather economically motivated migrants who should respectfully be returned to their homes of origin.
