    Most of Israel's citizens born after 1967 don't know the difference between the disenfranchised Arab residents of the territories Israel conquered in the Six Day War and Israel's Arab citizens. As a result, 50% of them think Arabs should not have the vote in Israel. This fading out of lines and limits has been a long process. Israel was founded as a secular state, on the basis of a biblical right to this area. In itself, not a disaster but in its attitude to the people already living here, a catastrophe. The result is never going to equal democracy unless those people's rights are guaranteed too. The way this is done depends on Israel at the moment. Israel has to urgently analyze what it aspires to be. If this results in a religious state, so be it. There's another not so far away from us called Saudi Arabia and yet another called Iran. If it wants to be a democracy, it has to make concessions that will see most of the areas that are holy to Judaism in Palestine.
