For Arabs, the enemy is not only the Israeli state: it is the Israeli state AND society

"A new study examining Jewish and Arab Israeli teens' opinions on a wide range of issues shows nearly half of Jewish youths support revoking Arab-Israelis' basic rights.  The study focused on such issues as nationalism, democracy and attitudes towards State institutions.  The results: Israeli teens in 2010 believe less in democracy, are inclined towards rebelliousness and violence, are more racist and some have given up hope for peace. They are also more right-wing and patriotic." (thanks Yassine)
