    "the Citizenship Law requiring anyone applying for citizenship to declare loyalty to Israel as a "Jewish and democratic" state. Israeli Arabs, who already have citizenship, would not be required to sign a loyalty oath," Loyalty oaths are required by every country in the world by their prospective new citizens. What are these people whining about now? Israeli Arabs are really discriminated against all right, they get free medication, free education, free services from their local and state governments, and yet do no have to sere in the army. and these momsers also have the chutzpah to state ""The book of laws in Israel has long turned into a guidebook for the most discriminatory and racist regime in the world and in history." Well they are entirely free to apply for North Korean or Saudi citizenship then. How about Venezuela, I am sure they would want to breathe that pure air. There will never be peace between Arabs like these ingrates and Israelis. and never is a long time.
