    You address something but do it half. Israel is a segregated country between the Jewish ethnic population too. Besides he stunning tolerant attitude of kibbutzim, always having been the jumping board for immigrants from various immigrant waves, Arab youth groups, Tzadal refugees, name me one place in Israel where people live truly mingled... maybe Neve Shalom haeavily sponsored by outside resources like a kind of parade horse of tolerance, believ me they have their tensions....So to present this segregation problem as something Jewish-Arab is just not the true picture. There is something in the human condition that wants people to live with their own, feel secure, when you need it there is a helping hand. and so forth.. Orthodox neighbourhoods, Russian neighbourhoods, Ethiopian neighbourhoods in cities, rural communities of Oriental immigrant founders, mainly Ashkenazi immigrants...This is not different from the USA and also in Europe there is a lot of segregation . What do you want from tiny Israel where anyways tensions are high, where many Israeli leaders, Arab and Jewish, leave no chance to put further distrust and fear in the people...in Israel where you do not know if tomorrow you and your loved ones live or die, have a job, in short: struggle for a living and look out for your own because thats what everyone does in a society which still doubts its own legit existence after more than 60 years.
