That sounds nationalistic.
Not to mention racist. Are we to define democracy as a nation that only gives political power to a certain race/creed?
Check out the rights that Arab Israeli citizens have, then get back to me on this.
Why don't you tell me? Is it anything like the 'honorary white' status South Africa gave a select few blacks?
Are Palestinians and other Arabs and Muslims allowed to immigrate into Israel just as Jews are? What use is any political power to 18% or so of Arabs if their population cannot grow like the Jewish one does?
I'm not trying to say Israel should open its borders to anyone like we do, its their country, their laws. I'm saying its a farce to call Israel a "model for democracy" for the middle east when they allow only a Jews to immigrate to Israel. And I am also saying its a farce to fund such a state with our tax dollars. And I am saying it would be a travesty to send our troops their to die for their nationalist and racists cause.
In answer to your question, no. But since your knee jerk is, Apartheid, I figure you're not educable. Just keep up with the hate mongers, it'll get you far.
When you round up people not of 'your kind' and corral them into segrated 'homelands', giving them no political power whatsoever, its usually called apartheid - not 'democracy'. Whatever the designation, its not worth of billions of our tax dollars.
I was not aware that not wanting to fund a political movement with tax dollars was 'hate mongering'. But hey, we all learn something new everyday- A new definition of hate, a new definition for democracy. I can't wait for tomorrow's lesson.
You don't believe israeli lies. You must be ineducable.
