5. no fudge.....but i see the classic demonization at work

for instance...the kibbutz example you used explains how they get around the law to avoid arabs and the orthodox jews

two points:
1) using people who break the law to make an argument is rather pathetic.

2) your argument was the committees forbad arabs, hence they are "anti arab racists..except you left out crucial information that made it clear that the criminal acts of a few wasn't racist against arabs but against jews as well.....

so what shall we call your "sins of omission" (what they did was illegal, and it included jews as well)...are you one of those who believe the 'ends justifies the means?"

did you do any research? much money is spent on the hared jews for education? I know why you don't want to know, if it turns out that less is spent than on secular jews in cities, then israeli govt is only guilty of incompetence and not that why you never checked?
here something for you to start with:
About half of all Arabs and 60% of Haredim live in poverty

and just to clarify, israel is a very imperfect society, not as bad as the US, but there is lots to improve, picking out a few aspects to "prove" israel is bad, anti arab, is rather absurd given that (and i'm guessing here) you probably promote a Palestinians state today, that clearly will be anti democratic based on a i right?

and i do believe there are israeli only roads in the west bank, hence its a nationalism/security issue and not racism....which i'm sure you would have prefered.
