During the war thousands of Japanese were interned into camps in America for fear of reprisals from within.Believe me I am not suggesting it and dont even go there,I am just making a point.But Arens is saying the treatment of the Israeli Arabs is unfair but we are in a war zone and Israel is under duress. Democratic values are hanging on by a thread because of the great fear that exists all the way around. Yes in a perfect world,for Israel a time of peace,Israel would be a fantastic democratic country.Most Jews would not allow it to be any different.They would not let the Right Wing squeeze the arabs. But now with Hamas and the unknown hanging over it.This situation Moshe Arens is talking about is not happening in a vacumn. Israel cannot take any chances.This is the mood of the Israeli people.
