    Only in Israel! Don't the Arab Israelis enjoy not going to the army for three years that they must now ask for jobs too? This is either chutzpah or madness or both! Give the Haredim equal employment in the Israeli Civil Service, something they would gladly do. But no, some Israelis have to think of ways to lean over backwards to "please" its Arabs when all the Arabs will do is laugh back in return, because hey, when was the last time anyone heard of an "initiative" by Arab regimes anywhere to grant rights, let alone official government-sponsored jobs, to their once very large Jewish populations? When Muhamad came to power in the 700s he put to the sword most of the tens of thousands Saudi Jews. Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Morroco, Algeria, Yemen never gave Jews jobs. Oh yeah, in the twentieth century they gave their Jews the job of getting out of their countries or else face frenzied mobs. Let the Israeli Arabs look for jobs in Arab countries and Israel should worry about the Jews. Logical!
