Imagine, Israeli non Arabs (i.e., Jews) have to put up with:

1) Back stabbing -- example #1:

Constant finding out on more and more Israeli Arabs aiding genocide bombers (whether with info or more than that), stabbing the very Israel, they're citizens of, thus indirectly murdering their fellow Israelis, the Israeli Jews...

2) Back stabbing -- example #2:

The Israeli Arab parliament members constantly whine about being "second class" citizens, after getting free education and achieving whatever they achieve, inside equal-rights & equal-access democractic Israel. As payback, these back stabbers are tarnishing Israel's image all over, especially on Arab global media.

3) Uneven rights -- Arab's advantage over Jews:

Israeli Arabs (unlike Israeli Jews) are exempt from serving in Israeli army (which is naturally for the protection of all Israelis), still they enjoy the same rights as Israeli Jews: voting, education, free speech, etc.

4) Now the favorite part: Israeli Courts (& often security) favor Israeli Arabs over Jews
Who's second class now?

Arabs Faking Attacks to Earn Matriculation Diplomas (A 'Pallywood' by
greedy Israeli Arabs)
(IsraelNN.com) Arab residents of Judea and Samaria are
faking terror attacks, carrying knives or other weapons at IDF checkpoints in
the hope of getting arrested. Doing so permits them an opportunity to spend time
in an Israeli jail, where they can quietly study for a high school matriculation
diploma, at no cost.
