Can you imagine an Arab having the top job at Mossad or Shin Bet?

Unlikely, but not impossible. Such a person would not be excluded from consideration because he's Arab, if he rose through the ranks to become a candidate.

But we're diverting far from the original discussion.

There is plenty of discrimination in Israel on a racial/religious basis. I regard it as an evil that should be reduced and hopefully eliminated. You regard it as some kind of goal to be promoted. It is the essence of bigotry. It is the same kind of hatred that has brought enormous suffering upon Jews in various countries over their history. Anyone who thinks such hatred, discrimination, and violence toward Jews is wrong must understand that it is unconscionable for Jews to inflict similar suffering on others. The name for what you suggest is apartheid, plain and simple. If Israel officially embarks on a policy of apartheid (unofficially it is sadly already there), it will become a pariah among nations, lose all its friends and allies, and ultimately bring a self inflicted destruction.
