    Arab Minister Wants New Anthem and Flag

    Arab Minister Wants New Anthem and Flag
    09:40 Feb 08, '07 / 20 Shevat 5767


    (IsraelNN.com) Israel's first Arab Cabinet minister, Raleb Majadle, said that the Jewish state should change its anthem and flag. "These were made and meant for the Jews, and did not take the Arab minority into account," he told the The New York Times. "If Israel wants to integrate us fully, then we need an anthem and flag that can do that, but it must be by agreement."

    The Labor party minister did not directly reject recent calls by Arab academics calling for Israel to drop its definition as a Jewish state. "The fact is that Israel is a Jewish State, a state with a Jewish majority. Can we change that reality with words?" he said.

    Muslim and Bedouin leaders have urged their constituents in the past several years to change that reality by multiplying quickly and creating an Arab majority in Israel without force. Arabs already constitute a majority in the Galilee outside of Haifa and in the "triangle" east of Netanya and Kfar Saba.

    Bedouin polygamy, permitted by Israeli authorities on the grounds of "religious freedom," has propelled Negev Bedouins from less than 15,000 people 50 years ago to more than 150,000 today, representing close to 40 percent of the population.

    Discussion is often fruitful and may increase interest in the anthem and the flag. This has happened in Finland, where suggestions have been made to the effect that the present anthem (same as that of Estonia) be replaced by the better-known Finlandia by Jean Sibelius.

    Yeah that's a great place to start. Let's rename the country, change the national anthem and the flag to one of those ubiquitous white black red green affairs.
