As an Israeli, I think Arab towns and villages make sense

Reader comment on item: Two Bus Lines to Bethlehem

Submitted by Anon. (Israel), Apr 16, 2016 at 11:37

The fact that probably most Arabs in Israel live in their own towns (and Jewish people likewise) is one of the reasons for why there's so little conflict within the country. The same can be said for ultra-orthodox neighborhoods and towns. The ultra-orthodox prefer to live with people just like them.

Having said which, there's a lot to be said for mixing, and east-Jerusalem 'Palestinians' who work in West Jerusalem seem to have a good attitude towards Israelis, which comes from directly interacting with them as individuals on a daily basis.

Your article is spot-on.
