Can Arabs, who make up one-fifth of Israel’s population, be loyal citizens of the Jewish state?

With this question in mind, I recently visited several Arab-inhabited regions of Israel (Jaffa, Baqa al-Gharbiya, Umm al-Fahm, Haifa, Acre, Nazareth, the Golan Heights, Jerusalem) and held discussions with mainstream Arab and Jewish Israelis.

The Boycott Divestment Sanctions BDS movement is an international attempt to cripple Israel’s economy through boycotts and to delegitimize the Jewish State by leveling spurious accusations of “apartheid.” BDS is detrimental to Israel. Should groups that support BDS be allowed to participate in the annual Salute to Israel parade? Definitely not!

Last year, the New Israel Fund was allowed to participate in the annual Salute to Israel parade. The NIF was joined by other far left groups which

Hundreds of Muslim worshippers, incited by a rumor that the Al-Aqsa mosque was under threat, recently hurled rocks down from Jerusalem’s Temple Mount on the Jews praying below at the Western Wall. Several Israeli policemen were injured quelling the violence.
