Former CIA director James Woolsey at the Aspen Institute’s Aspen Ideas Festival, which included a day of panels on different aspects of the current state of the Middle East, said there are a million Arabs in Israel, accounting for one-sixth of the Israeli population, and that “generally they enjoy the guarantees that Americans look for in the Bill of Rights.”

If he only knew...

It's what we call a Democracy. Yes, it's important for us to maintain our identity as the only Jewish country, but we are still a democracy.

Arabs citizens of Israel have the same rights as Jews.

Street signs and official documentation are in Arabic and Hebrew.

Israeli License Plate

Arabs vote in municipal, regional and national elections. Basically all of the same rights that Jews have...

Arabs also have the right to bear arms. Yup. Just like every other Israeli citizen, irregardless of race, religion, etc.

Arab Cab drivers, bank guards, EMS crew, shooting instructors, hunters, anyone that passes Israel's stringent licensing process is issued a carry permit.

In addition Arabs serve in the Israeli Parliament, IDF, Police, and Border guard.

Awesome! A part of life in Israel that NEVER gets out to the American citizen via the American MSM.
If this were more widely disseminated, it would put a whole new slant on the racism comments in the Israeli vs Palestinian arguements.
