    There is no need to repeat these appalling high and disgusting figures. They speak for themselves, the culture of Israel, and far too many of her people. Of course, no one who has lived in Israel, spent anytime in Israel, or has relatives in Israel is surprised by these figures. In all likelihood, the figures are too low. Many people are simply to polite or embarrassed to say what they really think. Put yourself in the shoes of an Arab Israeli. Imagine trying to make a living and raise a family in a country where the majority of your fellow citizens dislike or hate you simply because you are of a different religion. Imagine the abuse you would take at work. Imagine your son coming home from school day after day beaten and bloody just becauses he is an Arab. This situation is unacceptable. The government of Israel must stop fighting Arabs and Palestinians and start fighting racism. That and ending the occupation is the path to peace.
