31. #28 Ancestors' land?
Menachem ,   Israel   (06.07.12)
Most Israeli Arabs prefer Israel since they realize that no Arab or Moslem quality can offer any comparable life quality and freedom. The ancestors of the majority of Arabs in Israel, Samaria and Judea are from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and North Africa. The is a growing Westernization among young Israeli Arabs who should not be confused with the more traditional Arab non-Israeli citizens in the towns/villages around Jerusalem who have no connection to Israeli society and vote for PA or Hamas.
32. #8 not true
Yerushalmi ,   Jerusalem   (06.07.12)
1) Arabs get leases of public lands as much as jews, nobody can buy state owned land, they can lease it from the state 2) there are tons of arabs working in government beurocracy 3) if they get shorted it's their own fault, if their leaders would stop being PLO and Hamas spokesman, and play politics games (like Shas does), they would get funds. A society sector gets more funds when they can squeeze it out of the goverment, usually with a nice coallition deal. Arabs don't do that.
33. 28

" Would you prefer to stay in your land and house and live under a Palestinian government or an Israeli government 90% will say Palestinian " The majority would of course prefer to live under a Palestinian government although not Fatah or Hamas but thats all there is of they want palestinian rule. I would be very surprised if they wouldn't chose to live under arab rule than Jewish rule because its only natural they would want their own people to be calling the shots. Unless though there is an arab leadership that could deliver them the same quality of life and freedoms that they get in Israel then they will naturally chose to live in Israel. They might not like the idea of being an unwanted minority in a Jewish state but as long as their quality of life is good enough or the arab world is worse than Israel then they can handle the current less than ideal ( for them ) situation.

You making me laugh at your comments when you said they (The Arabs) don't want to leave their ancestors land. What land you are referring to? If you are referring to the Jewish State of Israel, then I would say get lost. Read your quran which is on our side by saying ''YA BNEI ISRAIL''. BNEI ISRAIL were Yahud not, Muslims or Arabs. You are called Arabs because you and your ancestors came from Arabia, Israel, Jerusalem Judea & Samaria are Jewish Land. Judea stands for Judah, and Judah stands for Yahud not Arabs. Your land in Arabia waiting for you. Yala move out from IZRAIL or ISRAIL
35. #29 I'm curious
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (06.07.12)
I'm not arguing with you, but I would like to ask a few more questions concerning your post. You didn't say, even given your tax situation, if you'd rather live under Israeli rule or Arab rule. If you believe that you don't get 10% of the service that a tax-paying Jew gets, what makes you stay? Common sense would dictate that you'd move somewhere where you thought you were being treated more fairly.
36. Oren #17 you are partially wrong
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (06.08.12)
The state land has been turned over the the JNF - which sells NO LAND ever. That is a fact, nor does the Supreme Court have authority to force anybody to sell anything. It can be leased and that is open to all citizens.
