    The attempt to justify the overt racism articulated by Lieberman and his cohorts is revolting. Racism should never, under any circumstances, be condoned. The Arab Knesset members as far as I know, have taken an oath of office and prsumably accept the two state solution. They need not be in love with their state. Since when is adoration of a state a prerequisite for office in any civilized nation? One may quarrel with them, one can be as caustic as one wishes, but nobody has the right to challenge their citizenship. Israel, as the home of the Jewish people, is indeed, the state of all its citizens and any effort to circumvent equality must be vigorously combatted. It would seem to me that the Arab members of the Knessset are more in accord with the ostensible tenets of the state than Lieberman, Kleiner, et al.
