NAZARETH, Israel - Thousands of Israeli Arab protesters marched through the streets of this biblical town Saturday demanding better protection for holy sites after a troubled family set off firecrackers inside a major Christian shrine.
While it is very true that minorities in Israel are in a much better state than minorities in Arab countries, Israel still has a long way to go before making 20% of its citizens feel they're being treated in a fair way. The Arab poplation of Israel do not look at Christians in Egypt or Kurds in Syria, they look at Jews in Israel. Israel should definitely get its acts together in this regard.
