Not an unreasonable comment but isn't it understandable that an Israeli Palestinian citizen might have a very complex relationship with his country? On the one hand, he or she is likely to be descended from many generations who have lived in what is now Israel so after 48 those who stayed had to accept that by doing so they were being subsumed into a new country which has never gone out of its way to ensure that they did not feel very much like a minority people. Likewise, they are seeing Israel deny self-determination to their fellow Palestinians and it would be unrealistic not to expect them to feel anger over the occupation. The common thread running through both these issues is that Israel has always been disdainful of the Palestinians, both within and beyond the green line. Maybe if that were to change, Israel's Palestinians citizens might be more ready to undertake national service. Some, of course, already do but they are still only few in number.
