It’s time for Netanyahu to go, end discrimination

It is tragic but predictable that Benjamin Netanyahu would like to have Israel declared a Jewish nation-state, thus disenfranchising Arab-Israeli citizens and families, many of whom were there long before partition in 1947. I am used to Netanyahu’s ferocious anti-Arab, anti-Muslim rants; what I wonder is why the U.S. continues to send aid to a government that is practicing precisely the kind of ethnic discrimination we deplore worldwide, including our own country.

I am not anti-semitic nor anti-Israel, but it is time for the current administration in Tel Aviv to go before it makes a mockery of values we and Israel claim to share.
