    The system is designed to discriminate against Arabs. The point is to quietly get rid of them. Let them know they are not welcome. Every Jew in Israel understands this and does their part. The police. The military. The politicians. The schools. Most of the time it works well, but sometimes, some liberal Jew who doesn't understand the system gets it wrong. Not only do they get it wrong, they make everybody look bad in the process and disturb the routine of QUIET discrimination. Actually, I don't mean to imply that ALL Israelis are bad guys. The good guys tend to keep a low profile though. Anyway, the high court is the culprit once again. Actually the high court is probably the only reason that Israel can claim to be a democracy rather than just a democracy for Jews. Overall though, I think that the high court manages to anger the left as much as the right, which must mean they are doing something right.
