Certainly, Moshe Arens is correct in pointing out that Israel has some serious internal social problems that need to be addressed, but then who doesn't? It takes centuries for a minority group to gain full equality with the majority and even then it may be in a legal sense only. Shoot, the U.S. has been working on this problem ever since the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 and we've come a long way, but there's still a long way to go. It's illegal to discriminate according to race, religion, sex, or national origin, but there are no laws which prohibit discrimination according to IQ level, poverty level, sexual orientation, or citizenship status. Since there is an armed conflict going on between Israel and the Palestinians (who are not Israeli citizens), the most important election issue at the moment is what to do about it. The social issues will just have to wait until after the war is over.
