Elan, you have sometimes accused me (perhaps justly) of playing semantic games.Now, it seems, it's your turn. I asked, "Do you think it's proper that Arabs should be excused from military service…" (emphasis added)You responded, "There is no blanket exclusion of Arabs from military service…" (emphasis added)But there is a blanket exemption. Arabs are not required to serve, but Jews are. It is pretty easy for Arabs to get an exemption…Actually, there is no need, since they were born exempt. From Wikipedia: "Although Arabs are not obligated to serve in IDF, any Arab can volunteer"Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Defense_Forces#Bedouins_... As for jobs at Mossad and Shin Bet, I don't believe there is a blanket exclusion either.Can you imagine an Arab having the top job at Mossad or Shin Bet?
