Why is it that the Israeli Arabs are not blowing themselves up in Israeli busses?

That's a strange question. I don't see your point. To give a direct answer; part of the reason is that most Israeli Arabs know they have a relatively good thing going, living in a country that is ruled by law, with better economic, educational, and civil rights prospects than in any neighboring country. The other important reason is that law enforcement inside Israel has so far been effective enough to prevent such acts.

If the Israelis had not decided to oppress the Palestinians and steal for them for close to 40 years do you think they would be that way? The Israeli behavior as described in the article is just business as usual. It is nothing special. This has been going on forever.

You mean the 40 years during the first 35 of which Palestinians had complete freedom of movement throughout Israel; when 250,000 Palestinians had regular jobs in Israel raising their living standards higher than any non-oil producing Arab country; when Israel extended its hand in peace allowing a terrorist and his organization to gain international recognition in exchange for the promise of peace.

No, it's not the expropriation of lands that causes the conflict. It's the total refusal of the Palestinians to live in peace with Jews, before 1948 and after, before 1967 and after, and to this day, that is the root cause of the conflict. Read the charter of Hamas. That is what motivates suicide bombers.
