ashamed to represent Zionism. When I seek to establish a Jewish community I am
not ashamed of it. We have the same rights but not the same obligations. This is
a Jewish state that was established for the Jews.”
MK Ophir Pines
(Labor) and the Arab MKs angrily accused Rotem of “racism," "apartheid,” and
“finishing off the country.”
If the Arabs don't like living in the Jewish state they should stop bitching and go back to their homelands; all 23 of them, and get out of ours. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out
