    The Arab pogrom in Acre on Yom Kippur was yet another wake-up call. The 200 Israeli Arabs who shattered the windshields of 110 Jewish cars, and burned and looted dozens of Jewish businesses in the city on the eve of Yom Kippur while shouting out, "Death to Jews!"

They don't recognize the authority of Israel's laws. They don't accept their identity as Israeli citizens. If the actual violence wasn't enough...
