    I don't think so. For all the legal distinction the Druze get, they are still socially Arab in Israel, and their disadvantage is just as evident economically, etc. What would you expect when Mizrahi Jews are barely non-Arab. Mizrahim predominate in prisons. They predominate in shanty towns. And they're JEWS! What do you expect of Arab non-Jews in a state designed for Jews. What the Knesset needs to do is pass a law that says it is a country for Hebrews, and then recognize that Hebrews come in all faiths, Jewish, and Christian, Muslims, Samaritan (the latter three being today's Palestinians.)
