  1. Its more than a shande. Its disgusting to me. Israeli attitudes, both of the Israeli jews and the government, make it hard to counter accusations of de facto if not perhaps de jure apartheid type policies at the worst and apartheid attitudes at the least. You may have seen these statistics in haaretz but i reference it here again: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/754512.html although I just checked the link but the page is gone (Haaretz has unfortuntely a lousy archiving system!). You will have to trust me then with these figures: One finding: “A majority of the Jewish Israeli public believes Israeli Arabs supported Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah during the war in Lebanon, according to a Dahaf poll conducted by Mina Tzemach. Some 18% of Israeli Arabs polled said they supported Hezbollah during the month-long war in the north… When asked who they supported in the second Lebanon war, 27% of the Israeli Arabs polled said they backed Israel, 18% said they supported Hezbollah and 36% said they did not support either side.”

    So lots of misconceptions there. But it gets worse: “In regards to Jewish-Arab relations, the poll found that some 62% of the Jewish Israeli public would be unwilling to rent an apartment to Arabs, and 35% said they would be willing to do so. Some 56% of those polled said it would bother them if one of their neighbors rented their apartment to an Arab, and 42% said they would be unbothered by such a scenario.”

    How is peace possible with Arab neighbours if Israel’s own citizens are treated this way. Unless of course, Israeli Jews would like to see most if not all Israeli Arabs leave their country and then Israel could be a Jewish version of an Islamic state.
