Finding freedom in the Mid-East is a daunting task. Whether among Israeli Zionists or Muslim autocracies there appears to be no room for debate or freedom of expression and movement. Arab Israelis have always tried to assimilate under their second-class status in Israel.

Question is; can Israel's professed democracy overcome its own theological repression? Or does the theological boundaries exist in much the same manner as their Arab potentate neighbors?
