    Aluf Benn forgets two important facts and helps the Guardian with its rabid anti-Israel campaign.First, The Arabs citizens in Israel are the only Arabs in the world who live in a democratic state and democratically elect their own representative. This despite the fact that they support enemy views of destroying the state. Suffice it to listen to Tibi et al. Secondly, If Aluf Benn partially supports the apartheid notion, he does not understand the difference betweeen oppressing a population on the basis of race and the process of defending our own existence. The annihilation of Israel has been an Arab goal since 1948 and has not been reciprocated by us to annihilate the Palestinians. With all the shortcomings in our attitudes that stem from this situation, we are better than any other state in the world, particularly those who preach to us and go to war in Iraq with the associated abuse to Iraqis and many war crimes. Thus Benn should shed his Galut stance and wake up to the real world
