A citizen can only take pride in a state that takes pride in him and protects him. If Mr Lieberman wants Israeli Arabs to take pride in Israel, he should stop discriminating and attacking them and treat them in the same way as Jewish citizens, or better: take pride in them! As a responsible person in the highest ranks, it is his duty to reach out to this mistreated group and make them an equal part of society, despite his political ideas. As long as the term 'Jewish' is used as a religious term, opposed to 'Muslim', there is a problem. I don't see a problem when 'Jewish' is marked as an identity that belongs to a state and a people. I don't think that most Muslims would think there is a problem to live in any state, as long as this state respects them, protects them and gives them equal rights. That seems an honest deal.
