'...and 30 percent feel hatred. In contrast, last year only 17.5 percent said they feel hatred when faced with spoken Arabic.' Now has the number of Israeli Jews who hate Arabic almost doubled in a year? Obviously not. Probably about as many Jews hate Arabs as ever did. What must have happened is that these sentiments are becoming increasingly legitimized. I'd think about what that leads to. After all, few in Germany explicitly called for all the Jews to be exterminated. What did happen was that hatred of them was legitimized, it became the norm to view them as a 'problem,' etc. The racist thug went from being contemptible to being a paragon of virtue. And that, of course, encourages the thug. It facilitates a 'solution.' It'd be good if Israel would at least look at the road she is treading.
