    What Dwairy is suggesting is not "multi-culturalism" but national schizophrenia. Should the government of Israel recognize what Palestinians call Naqba - what then? Would the PM celebrate Independance Day on one side of the street and rush across, throwing ashes on his head and wailing in recognition of Naqba (Disaster)? ...a rather comical scene.... The first steps in multi-culturalism is legalized equality (via a constitution), followed by rigorous enforcement. But the next step really lies at the feet of of citizens. Any citizen who does not respect the foundation of his/her state simply can't be part of the process of multi-culturizing. As for compensation - this can only be taken so far. There were terrible wars - with tremendous and painful losses on both sides. It's time to hang up the swords, sit down over a sahlab and try to build a country we can all be proud of - and all take part in.
