Wow I am so distressed. Israel must not be a democracy because it has decided not to let an Arab run who may not be thinking in Israel's intrests! There seems to be some outrage at this, as if this is a sign of Israel not being a democracy, and discrimination and racism against Arabs. Some other forums I visit act like this too, and all I have to say is that it is mind numbing to think about this idiocy. I think these people must form their opinions before they see any news, and, once the news is out, try and contort and skew it so that it fits their pre-formed views.
