In case y'all have not noticed. This arch Right Winger did not say : I ignored them, I dicscriminated against them, I prevented their integration into main stream Israeli society, I dislike them. No! He says it is the Israelis as a whole, their governments, their leaders who are to blame. The role of leaders is to set the tone, and to lead. Not to be led, to pander to the public or to feed on base instincts. Those responders who have the temerity to accuse the Israeli Arabs of disloyalty to the state should think of the way they and their brothers in the territories have been treated for so many years. Correcting past wrongs cannot take forever. It either has to be done in one fell swoop or all is lost.
