    Yaakov, Israel is Jewish and democratic. There is not one Arab country where the inhabitants have more rights than Israeli Arabs have. You don't condemn other Arab countries or the Palestinians because your goal seems to be demonization of Israel, but this is a fact. As the writer himself notes, plenty of other Western, civilized countries have similar laws and yet no one condemns those countries. "The proponents of the law have pointed to legislative amendments that were passed recently in Denmark and Holland. In Denmark, the amendment to the law prevents anyone who does not have a deep connection to Denmark from becoming a citizen of the country or even living there, and this affects mainly, but not only, Muslims." As usual, Israel is demonized and held to an unfair standard by its unfair opponents. Tell me Yaakov, are Denmark and Holland also not democracies? Your demonization of Israel only impresses those with no knowledge of the real facts on the ground and those who already demonize and hate Israel.
