    Most of the actual bills listed didn't seem all that racist to me. 1) Offering benefits to those in the military or national service? What country doesn't? Arabs can serve if they please but don't. 2) Prison for those who publish or say adverse ideas? How is this racist? Does it say Arabs? While it is a terrible law that runs contrary to democratic ideals, it does not mean that Arabs would be going to jail any faster than Gideon Levy. 3) Changing all street names to Hebrew is wrong, particularly in Arabic neighborhoods and cities, but why would the state fund events marking the Independence Day as a day of mourning? How can the state be obliged to pay for events mourning its existence? Again, I can't think of another country that does this. I mean c'mon, it's not like we're banning their hijabs or minarets or anything...
