Arabs behaving badly

Thought provoking stuff from Gideon Levy in Ha'aretz:
Our Arabs have been misbehaving lately. After all we did for Scandar Copti - funding and grooming him and sending him off to Hollywood - he dared say that his film "Ajami" - our film, the film of us all - doesn't represent us in the end. After we allowed MK Ahmed Tibi to study medicine at Hebrew University (!) and even let him be elected to the Knesset, he dared compare our saintly Zionist militants - the Olei Hagardom who were hanged by the British during the Mandate period - to their terrorists. That's not nice, Scandar. That's not right, Ahmed.

The young are going wild in the streets: a survey published in Haaretz last week offered a suitable Zionist answer to the rebellious Arabs. Half our young people think that Arabs do not deserve the same rights as Jews; 56 percent believe that they should not be allowed to run for a Knesset seat. If our Arabs continue to behave so disgracefully, after everything we've done for them, these numbers will only rise.

But don't call it apartheid whatever you do.
