There is nothing particularly exotic or Israeli about minorities serving in the armed forces of a country and emerging still second-class citizens. We all know how the Jews of Germany who fought for the Kaiser in WWI ended up from 1933 to the end of WWII. The brave Ghurkas who fought with the British are to this day struggling to obtain the pension that is the right of the other troops. How did the African-Americans who fought in Viet Nam come home if not still as second-class citizens? Israel is a Hebrew state the way Egypt is an Arab state. Did Egypt ask Israel, or any other country to recognize its Arabness? Why are we asking for recognition after 60 years of statehood? The only thing about us that needs recognition is a border. Unfortunately it is we who have not yet recognized the need to define one, not the Palestinians.
