Israelis Arabs and their alleged "Lack of Dignity"

Reader comment on item: Israeli Arabs in High Places

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Mar 2, 2012 at 23:04

As an American citizen who came to the USA

at the age of 10

I had no problem with the "alien" (to me) national anthem

which recites Anglo-American history.

I do not suffer an "inferiority complex"

because the great United States

is the product basiclt of WASPS.

On the contrary, I love this country

precisely because it lets me be a part of it.

Citizenship should be like marriage,

wherein one adopts into one's greater family,

one's in-laws!

This might be a good time

to remind Palestinian Israelis

how lucky they are that the British

are responsible for them not being a part

of "Greater Syria" under Sadat.

One could also remind them them

what their closest brethern have so far "accomplished in Trans-jordan,

where the British created a Palestinian non-Jewish state for them.
