    Immigrants in the new world, and that's nearly everyone in North, Central, and South America are encouraged to integrate, to assimilate into the their new worlds. Immigrants in their attempt 'to fit in' will do almost anything to be acceptable to their hosts, including learn English or Spanish, take correct pronunciation classes if they can afford it. And of course Englisize their name, or even change their names to an English name. The millions of immigrants to the Americas over the decades could all possibly be in jail by now if immature Israeli laws were ever contemplated in the new world. I think Israel needs to learn from the history of successful empires, whether they be 600 years of the Roman Empire, or 400 years of the Anglo-Saxon Empire. The key to their survival was the offer of integration, assimilation and citizenship of the people they ruled. This kind of mature and wise policy has led to relative peace and harmony within the empire. If Israel is to rule successfully over the peoples it happens to dominate, they should really take a page out of the history of Roman and English Empires. With this kind of wisdom, Israel has a good chance of surviving for as least as long as the English and Roman Empires, maybe even longer if they truly learn the secret of tolerance
