Subject: Most Israeli Jews favor official discrimination against Arab citizens.

http://www.salon.com/2012/10/23/majority_of_israeli_jews_sup...

I expected some small percentage of Israelis to have that view, but not a majority.

I've said before that I favor making Judaism a condition of citizenship, combined with a liberal conversion policy, the grandfathering of existing non-Jewish citizens, and conferring permanent resident alien status on newborn non-Jews (unless they choose to convert).

But I do think that all citizens should be treated alike, and so long as the current law (permitting non-Jewish citizens) stands, I oppose all discrimination by the government against citizens for arbitrary reasons.

(I'm not bothered by discrimination where national security is at stake. For example, I don't think I'd hire a Muslim to translate documents intercepted from hostile foreign governments.)
