    Israel is a multi cultural state where political correctness is not the norm. Yes there is alot of hostility towards different groups, a couple of weeks ago I was walking down the street say a man shorts & t shirt ( no haredi or settler ) shouting at an arab man who was on the pavement crying because of the verbal bullying and the Jews was shouting at him in Hebrew LEAVE, LEAVE THIS IS MY COUNTRY that sort of thing and there were 2 municipality hired security guards just a couple of meters away watching him shout this arab to tears and they did nothing. I stopped and asked him what he was doing and his reply was HE IS AN ARAB. There are some religious groups who in some places set up a small table in the street where people can chose to come along and put on teffilin ( a harmless Jewish ritual ) they don't disturb anybody they don't advertise, they are just there. You go to a place like Ramat Aviv which is a rich secular neighborhood in Tel Aviv and the residents are up in arms saying the religious are trying to convert their children and they should be banned, these people are hurting nobody but the secular hate the religious. Whilst there is alot of hatred ( although there is still plenty of love ). Of course religious also hate seculars and arabs hate Jews. There is undoubtedly alot of hatred and intolerance partly caused I think because we have people from all over the world with different cultures thrown into a single small country and there are cultural clashes ( personally I can't stand the Russians ) but the fact there is hatred doesn't mean the country is undemocratic because democracy and hatred are not the same thing,
