in response to reader comment: Why not conversion?

So many things wrong with your idea. Conversion must be sincere on religious grounds. One cannot convert to Judaism and remain moslem, christian, etc. Israeli Arabs are citizens -no different than I- and enjoy full citizenship rights and benifits. So why convert? Arab converts would be shunned by other Arabs, excommunicated, persecuted etc. and good chance they'd jeopardize their own safety.
