I wonder how he sleeps at night having turned 20% of his fellow Israeli citizens into "guests" of the "Jewish State." The Arab Israelis, even as prominent Likudniks have recently admitted, are an oppressed, largely disenfranchised population.

Where's the creative brilliance that was once a hallmark of Israel's founders.

Until then, calling Israel a Jewish state is a lot of crap.
