the arabs have a long way to go before they can be considered to be civilized, but the israelis are definitely not the ones they should look up to in that department. israel is not a civilized countries in any way shape or form and teh israelis as a whole are not civilized at the least. stand in line anywhere in israel(a contradiction in terms) go to a movie, drive on the road, try to inetrface with beurocrats and you will find out very fast how uncivilized and rude the israelis are. run into israelis abroad, and you'll know where they are from before hearing one word, pushing, cutting in line,loud, lack of minimal manners. there are many reasons why they are universally despised, and we haven't even mentioned the settlers yet.
