    Bill, you say, "Call on the strangers among us to live at peace and under Israel`s soveriegnty...". Fine. What then are they to expect? To be treated any way that Israel feels like? Then, according to G-d's word, and as so many times in the past, Israel will surely not enter into their rest. "Do justice and love righteousness". "Oppress not the stranger, for you were strangers in Egypt". "Cursed is he who moves his neighbor's boundary stone". How often have these been cited in Israel's treatment of the Arabs. How constant were the voices of warning before 1948 on how to make common cause with the Arabs instead of antagonizing them, voices like Judah Magnes and others. They were ignored because of the hubris of Herzl, Weitzmann, Ben Gourion. The results speak for themselves. Finally, "Not for your sake, Israel, but for my holy name's sake..."
