"Israel is not un-tolerant to its minority, the truth is just the opposite." (Akram Zekaria) Right you are. Israel is not intolerant toward its Arab citizens. But Israeli governments treats the Arab sector shamefully, blatantly discriminating against them. Please read Benziman (not writing about Israel) again: "All Israeli governments have treated the Arab sector shamefully ..." "Master plans are not enough to eliminate the blatant discrimination against Arab citizens ..." See www.hrw.org/reports/2001/israel2/ I can understand your stand: Whoever is in love desires to find dignity in the object of his passion. Try to understand too: No one should be faulted for being in love with a country, but neither should anyone support a government unconditionally. I am sure you wouldn't do that with Blair's.
