Israel's forgotten Palestinians

Here is a link which I meant to post back before the Israeli election. It made depressing reading even before the result was announced (not that the election result had too much relationship to the eventual composition of the government, but that's full-on PR for you).

It is a sobering reminder (for those who need it) that while most commentary on Israel and the Palestinians concentrates on those living under military occupation, those more fortunate who have Israeli citizenship have only a fraction of the rights enjoyed by their Jewish compatriots in what some persist in declaring to be the region's only "democracy". Aye, right.
