    There are Jewish and Muslim Israelis if I'm not mistaken. We're all citizens of this country. And the reason there is discriminiation against muslims is not because their religion, its because of the greater Arab Israeli conflict. Much like the Japanese and German Americans experienced significant discrimination during WWII. Of course, WWII only lasted 10 years, the Arab Israeli conflict continues to go on, at the refusal of so many Arab and muslim nations to recoginze Israel as the national expression of the Jewish people. So do us all a favor and stop with your psycho-babble. There is an Israeli people. And Israel is democratic. Perhaps its not the ideal social democracy the editors of this paper would like, but Capitalistic Democracy is no better, like we see in the US. Where those with money have the most rights. No system is perfect, because we don't live in an ideal world. And Israeli democracy is no better, or no worse than the other types of democracy we see in the world.
