Report: (Israel's) FM irked by secret EU report on Israeli Arabs

A secret report prepared by European Union official on the gaps between the Jewish and Arab communities in Israel has reportedly enraged Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and other top Jerusalem officials, the British Independent said on Tuesday.

The confidential 27-page brief outlined a large number of indicators suggesting that Israeli Arabs "suffer from economic disparities, unequal access to land and housing, discriminatory draft legislation and a political climate in which discriminatory rhetoric and practice go unsanctioned," the paper said.

While the report criticizes some Israeli Arab leaders over their "disloyalty to Israel," the majority of criticism is leveled at Israel, which it claims fails to address the major issues plaguing the Israeli Arab sector. …

The EU's draft also stated that the international community should look at Israel's treatment of its minorities "as a core issue, not second tier to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

Ya...Europe’s treatment of the Jewish people leaves them with a lot of room to talk....

Europe’s treatment of the Arab people, however, has been remarkable to the extent they’ve allowed themselves to be run over by them......

Thanks Olog-hai.
While the report criticizes some Israeli Arab leaders over their "disloyalty to Israel,"...
I mean, really, why get all upset about thousands of mortars and missiles fired into Israeli towns? I mean, what's next? Justification for kicking Syria out of the Golan Heights?

Let’s do a special report on Spain and France’s treatment of Basques, and while we’re at it, how about those Dublin Catholics, England.
