    What the article conveniently forgets to mention is these questions are part of a wider survey not the only questions asked. The people who are conducting this survey are a private company and they are investigating what the people who will be using this train want. In all business you test the markets see what people want. If the majority of the people don't like the idea of arabs riding the train then they probably won't put any stops in palestinian areas if its going to make other passsengers uncomfortable. The palestinians are welcome to ride the train they just don't get a stop on their front door. Its about ECONOMICS. The only thing that does worry me is the fact that there is not going to be any security. You can get on at any stop with a bomb and you blow up a train you have the potential to kill hundreds. We have taken to much for granted that there have not been any suicide bombings for a while but they can restart at any time and it only takes 1 person with a bomb to kill alot of people. You want to take a regular train then before you can enter the station you need to go through a security check but on this one there is not going to be any security. I think they are going to find if some security is not provided then alot of people who would travel on the railway will find the busses safer. They are also opening themselves up to law suits first time there is a bomb people will be saying to the company you intentionally made a decision from the start not to provide any security now as a result people are dead we are going to sue you. This survey though is not racist or political its economic because customer always knows best.
