Well this is true but again, this truth only highlights the artificiality which is Israel. It isn't a naturalist esq state and doesn't function as one. It has an ad hoc racial nazism of sorts among its Jewish population. Nobody is much allowed to talk about this fact but the truth is Israel is an internally fascist country very much so in how it operates legally. It would as you mentioned tear itself apart if it ever had the time to do so. Its own society has massive, unfix-able contradictions (refusing non-Jews legal rights yet proclaiming to be a democracy).
The irony being that if Israel gave non Jews rights it would be voted out of existence by its Arab citizens.
May Arab people vote in Israel?
Given the fact Israel is usually referred to as the only democratic party in the middle east, I was wondering whether all people living there have a right to vote independently of ...show more

Yes they can vote. Every Israeli over the age 18 can vote, regardless of sex and religion.
There are Arab parties in Isreal and they do in fact have seats in Parliament; the United Arab List has a few as do Balad.
Most Arabs in Israel have all the same legal rights as every other Israeli citizen. However, these rights may be obscured in practice because of the political/religious turmoil and culture surrounding the country.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
What a load of crap...a moral imperative.
This is little to do with morals and everything to do with fear.
There are plenty of horrific regimes around the world that mistreat their people - Saudi Arabia, North Korea, many African countries are a mess and on and on. And I don't see the American masses talking about a 'moral imperative' to help them. They could care less about them.
But since ISIS threatened America and beheaded a freelance journalist (who was pretty naive to be running around Syria to begin with - a lone American snooping around in a region that generally hates Americans...not a recipe for a long life)...now ISIS is the new mortal enemy.
Oh, they were fine when they were treating people horribly as long as they were fighting Assad. But now that they have branched out...now Americans are cowering in fear.
They always hated Americans, it is just that most Americans didn't care. But now that they have walked over a bunch of unmotivated Iraqi's who fled Mosul as soon as they got close...now they are a 'mortal threat'.
They are about 10,000 strong, have a little artillery, mostly run around in pickups or captured Humvee's and have ZERO air power...yet they are now a direct threat to America?
Ridiculous and hypocritical.
Let's call it what it is...it is not morals (this desire to stop them)...it is FEAR.
It is time America left the Middle East alone and got on with the business of fixing itself.
But no, ever since 9/11, the American masses have lost their backbone. They see terrorists everywhere and do whatever it takes to sleep better at night...invade countries, bomb civilians, support horrible regimes (like the Saudi Royal Family), torture people, detain the innocent indefinitely...not to mention get thousands of brave Americans killed in the middle of nowhere and spend trillions that America does not have in the process and on and on.
America has become the elephant being chased around the ring by a mouse....and the new mouse is ISIS.

Why don't these idiots just convert to the religion with the most guns and then go have an ice cream cone. Geez! Convert or Die isn't a difficult decision. Just in case you guys don't know the correct answer is to convert.
Convert already you arrogant slime bags.
