    I have heard opponents of deportation of Arab and other non-Jewish citizens of Israel decry it as a prime example of "racism." This is absurd. If such a policy is so virulently "racist," then why would Jews of all nationalities remain in the state of Israel? What about the Ethiopian Jews? If they remain alongside the Sephardim and Ashkenazim, then surely this has nothing to do with race. Though these same people are so concerned over an Arab minority in Israel, they seem to turn a blind eye to Arab attacks upon Israelis simply because they're Israelis-- in paticular, because they're Jews. Is it racist for Israel to deport the very people that are attempting to undermine their state, yet not racist in the least for these people to kill Jews solely because they're Jewish? Israel is a homeland for Jews, the only one which exists in the world. Deport the Arabs: afterall, they have the rest of the Middle East to live in. I seriously doubt Jews would be welcome in their homelands.
