"loyal Arab minority?" - who is the fool Yes. I remember well how Israeli Arabs rallied to the nation's need during the Yom Kippur War. The current belief on the part of some Israelis that ALL Arabs are enemies and NO Arab can be a loyal citizen is a blatant expression of the level of insanity that Mr. Levy writes about. One of the manifestations of the national mental condition is the degree to which the Israeli right is determined to do all it can to offend and harass the Arab minority. While in the past Israel might be accused of a benign neglect of it's Arab minority, recent governments have gone out of their way to be abusive. It is essentially insane for ANY democratic government to turn on a minority group for racist reasons. It is not only wrong, it is dangerous. The right-wing belief that ALL Arabs are Enemies could well become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
