Reader comment on item: Israel's Domestic Enemy

Submitted by Blackspeare (United States), Dec 19, 2006 at 16:21

Throughout the course of history national changes in a country come from within rather than from the outside. While outside forces do exert some influence, major changes come from the evolving nature of the population itself and I am not referring to nationalism----that is a whole different animal though it does come from within the state. We see the greatest changes in countries where the population is heterogeneous. Homogeneous countries like Japan and China change only in the form of government----the nationality of the state remains the same.

In deference to this article, we can see the evolving pattern in Israel----a virtual fifth column is forming that will be difficult to impede without a serious setback to democratic principles. As Israeli Arabs become politically more powerful, the state of Israel will be altered into a "secular" state losing it's "Jewishness." The only way to avoid this is to create loyalty requirements backed up by laws and then you'll have a state closely approaching that of Saudi Arabia----my way or the highway.

A while back I made a comment about a "one-state" solution, a one and a half to one half state is getting close!
