    Arabs in Israel have increasingly demonstrated that (in general) they do not, nor have most of them ever, felt particularly "Israeli".... This has been admitted to me, countless times, by so-called "Israeli"-Arabs who I've met in Israel and abroad. The results of this "Campaign Against Racism" poll are simply the chickens coming home to roost. A minority community cannot openly admit their widespread disloyalty (and occasionally demonstrate such disloyalty with violent outbursts and demands for fundamentally changing the character of the state) without the majority taking note and planning for the worst. I would hope that any nation with large ethnic minorities -- be it the USA, UK, France, Germany, Russia, etc. -- would pay attention to these kinds of things. If they didn't, or if they buried their collective heads in the sand and just hoped for the best, they would deserve to be destroyed from within.
