I think what is key in Arens approach (rather than the far left approach) is that he seeks to find a balance between respecting the minority on the one hand, and on the other hand recognizing the majority. He is not calling for the abolishment of all Jewish symbols (i.e. Hativka, the Flag, etc.,) as some calling for a non-Jewish Israeli identity propose. Rather, his emphasis is on respecting and integrating a very important minority. This is sound, reasonable, and effective.
