    Most Israelis don't want to annex the West Bank, in no small part precisely because they don't want to give them the vote. If you ask a hypothetical question, 'But if Israel would annex the West Bank, would you feel better about giving them the vote then?', of course the answer will be 'No!' Not having to give WBers the vote is a main reason why Israelis don't want to annex the WB in the first place! Likewise, asking if Israeli Jews would rather Israeli Arabs become Palestinian citizens is not the same as demanding they be stripped of their citizenship. As for preference for Jews, well, I think it understandable that Israeli Jews want most of their civil servants to be Jews. It is a Jewish state, after all, established as an act of Affirmative Action for the Jewish people. Affirmative Action is a kind of discrimination on behalf of an historically disadvantaged group. Now, that may be problematical, and more needs to be done to create a society which is more inclusive towards Israeli Arabs. Unfortunately Palestinian Arab nationalism is on the rise among Israeli Arabs, and this is likely to have the opposite effect. The global BDS movement is, basically, a pro-Palestinian Arab Muslim and Christian, but anti-Jewish, nationalist movement, and may only exacerbate the problem all the more.
