Reader comment on item: Arguing over "Does Israel Need a Plan?"

Submitted by Jeremty A. Lifsey (United States), May 13, 2003 at 11:27

"To be truly pro-Israel is to come to terms with Zionism's embedded antagonism toward the "native population" and the century-old scheming to pry the natives from their land and otherwise disenfranchise them of their basic civil rights. "

The above is a direct quote from your letter. If Israel is 'scheming to pry the natives from the land' how come over a million Arabs live in Israel, most of whom are citizens and have representation in the Knesset? How come other Arab countries deny help to the refugees? Lebanon has written in their constitution that they may not become citizens.
