    There's no question that the State should be there for all of its citizens, and a cosmopolitan Israel where Jews and Arab citizens are accepted on an equal footing and at ease is something to be worked for. But we should never forget that ethinc self centeredness is a human frailty that extends to all people and that includes Arabs. All of what Levy says makes sense although how much it plays out on a day to day basis amongst real people who deal with each other, I don't know. But what also makes sense is that Israeli Arabs would have as much of a problem promoting a cosmopolitan society as Israeli Jews. Maybe more so. Levy should not forget the sad fact that despite fair treatment of the Sudaten German minority in Czechoslovakia, they were wildly in favor of annexation by Hitler in 1938. The fairest treatment of Israeli Arabs that Levy can imagine may well produce a result that is no different.
