    Ah, I see.

    LULZ. These "debates" always end up mirroring the arab-israeli conflict.

    Nothing is grey. All is black and white. Not taking a side is taking a side.

    Interesting.

    Just the way to solve the problem, eh?

    I'm trying to take the multicolored side, but I'm being faced with black vs white reasonings "YOU HATE THE JEWS ! WHY DO YOU HATE 'EM JEWS ? WHY WHY ?"

    As I said, many ethnic parties are very small, and thus, most of the time they are not represented. But the more the Israeli Arabs join the large "classic" non-ethnic parties, the more they are represented in the Knesset. It's as simple as that.
    Thus, the number of Arab MKs is a good way to check how the Arab community becomes integrated into Israeli society. And despite the current conflict, I'd say the trend is good (so far), even if everything is far from being perfect.

    Just trying to wind you up. And it worked!

    A more salient factor may be the diversity of the arab population. I would think a christian arab might have a different voting proclivity than say a druze or circassian.

    All the best.

    It's absolutely true. Druzes are 100% integrated. They even often vote for extreme right parties, those with the toughest stances against Syria and Arabs as a whole [!!!]. (But I don't know if this is really a proof of "integration")

    The same can be said with the thousands of Lebanese Arabs that obtained their citizenship through political asylum: their prefered party is the Likud!

    And the Bedu tribes from the Negev have their own political party, probably the only Zionist islamic party in the world! (Odd combination, isn't it?)
