    So why would there not be discrimination between Arabs and Jews? Watch a police barricade on a day like Yom Yerushalayim for instance. Look at the people they allow through. Wonder why you are not allowed through. Are you carrying a gun? No. Are you wearing a T-shirt with a slogan on it? No. Are you carrying a slogan of any sort? No. Do you have a camera? Also not. Are you covered up? Yes, you are more covered up than the policewoman who is one of those barring your way and trying to convince you to go cry at the "andarta" instead of commemorating Yom Yerushalayim the way you see fit, quietly, contemplatively, walking through all the highways and byways of this so-called United Jerusalem. Make no mistake, we have our police, we have our mounted police, we have our motorbike (Basiji?) police, we have our IDF, we have our helicopters, our CCTV, our Zeppelin, all of which are engaged not only in under-privileging our Arab citizens, but also Jewish citizens. Haaretz or its censor doesn't like the poem by Martin Niemoller, but that's the point we're at. Go look it up yourselves. After you've read it, go out onto the streets and shout that you want your country and your democratic symbols back. Otherwise they'll all be gone forever.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
