I lived in Israel and the US. I actually find the majority of Americans more intolerant than the majority of Israelis. There is alot of intolerance in Israel and most of it is from state policies. The issue is government policies that don't care about minority rights. I would also say that all minorities in Israel (Palestinian, religious, gay, Russian, etc.) tend to be much more intolerant than secular Israelis.
