    Unfortunately, Arab-Israelis can't seem to get it together any more than the Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza. Many of them do not vote for Arab parties, but for others they think are more effective. They prefer to break laws, rather than work together to assure that laws are applied equally (for instance building permits), then when they are faced with the consequences, they create public discord, which is all too eagerly reported by worldwide media. And, as always, when MK Tibi speaks, it is hard to know whether his loyalty is to Israel, which has given him the opportunity to participate fully in the democratic process, or with the rest of the Arab world that would destroy Israel. As for the scholarships given to Arab students by Jordan, may I remind him that, during the time the West Bank was under Jordanian rule, students there had to go to Amman or Cairo or Damascus for higher education, because Jordan would not allow institutions of higher learning to be established there. MK Tibi, please come to the table, be a loyal citizen, and honor your country for what you and your fellow Arab-Israelis have received and achieved there.
