Just sad.

Haaretz: "Christians in Jerusalem want Jews to stop spitting on them."

YNET: "African diplomats in Israel: 'We're afraid to walk down streets'"

Avraham Burg: "Israel's Fading Democracy"
A long-overdue constitution could create a state that belongs to all her citizens and in which the government behaves with fairness and equality toward all persons without prejudice based on religion, race or gender. Those are the principles on which Israel was founded and the values that bound Israel and America together in the past.

...And for all the cynics who are smiling sarcastically as they read these lines
Those are the principles on which Israel was founded and the values that bound Israel and America together in the past.
Wrong on both counts.

And for all the cynics...

Watching people fight with themselves to defend something they need to think of as just, because they were raised to think of it as just. Cognitive dissonance is hard. This is how change happens.
