Sorry on that one--you are wrong. Israel is a country with a vibrant free press that exposes people like this rabbi and critically examines itself daily. Arabs in Israel are better off than they are in Arab countries. In fact, Arabs can express themselves on this site more readily than in any other forum. That is something we Americans admire about Israel, and it is why American feel a special kindred with the Jewish state. Xenophobia is endemic in Arab countries. Israelis confront themselves and their actions daily with a pluralistic discourse that examines every aspect of their society. That is something Americans admire, and it is something Arabs wish they could have.
