Most of Israel's Arab population and the Palestinians in the West Bank are the descendants of families who have lived in the area for many generations. They are being harmed by relatively new immigrants, Jewish ones. Since its inception Israel has never treated its minority citizens as full equals, at least not in practice. Now we have Jewish settlers in the West Bank behaving as overlords. I am a Zionist but it is not enough for me that there is a Jewish homeland called Israel, more important is what values it chooses to live by.
