    Jews don't fear "integrating" or "coexisting". -If Jews would "integrate" into the Middle East as of now, it would mean that Israel would have to turn into an authoritarian/totalitarian state that is repressive to its own citizens (minus freedom of the press, religion, political parties). These are the characteristics of the region. -As for "coexisting", the Israelis could have killed or thrown out ALL the Arabs since 1948. In fact, Israel allowed 300,000 Palestinians into the territories, when they were thrown out of Kuwait, and distributed gas masks to the Palestinians in anticipation of Saddam's attacks, despite the fact that Palestinians were cheering Saddam's strikes on their roofs. Further, Arabic is also a state language of Israel.
