    You say, “Where do you see a country where some ethnic group has more rights than others?” We see it in fifty-six member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, including the 21 member states of the Arab League. I always love it when a person discloses his ignorance and anti-Jewish/Israel sentiments by singling out Israel and ignoring the other, far more egregious violations by others. You say, “A proposed law which explicitly confers more rights on one ethnic group will paint Israel as an Apartheid state.” Then I suppose the US “GI Bill of Rights” and any “affirmative action” programs make the US an Apartheid state, too. In fact, ANY law that gives any group more benefits than other groups will turn that state into an “Apartheid state” for you. You say, “The world believes in Democracy, not Ethnocracy.” Really? The world, where two-thirds of the nation-states on the UN membership rolls are dictatorships of one sort or another, hardly “believes in democracy”. The evidence is in front of your own eyes. I worry about and do more than you about Israel’s problems and don’t agree with many policies of present and past governments without having to lie or distort facts in order to get my point across. Mr. Logios, fix what’s wrong in your own country, wherever that is, before you take out your anti-Jewish hatred on Israel from thousands of kilometers away.
