Israel's wisdom reprised ... againandagainandagain

Israeli ministers have approved the wording of a new law that would downgrade Arabic as an official language and which states that the right to self-determination in Israel “is unique to the Jewish people”, despite the country’s sizeable non-Jewish minority.
There are an estimated 5.3 million Jews in the United States -- 2.2% of the population. The United States is where the money is. There are an estimated 6 million Jews in Israel, whose Arab population is estimated at 1.65 million or some 20%. There are 7.3 million Canadians (22% of the population) whose mother tongue is French.
Large minded-ness among the victors is not a common attribute. Look at the U.S. in Afghanistan where the Russians and the British had the good sense to skedaddle.
