Imagining Racism to Demonize Israel
(dailyalert.org, Dec. 3, 2014)

Adalah – the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, which is funded heavily by foreign governments, promotes a database of discriminatory Israeli laws that has been cited in the New York Times. As noted by Ha’aretz columnist Mira Sucharov: “I took a closer look at the list…one refers to the use of the Menorah on the Israeli stamp; another mentions the use of the Hebrew date in government correspondence; and a third cites the Star of David on Israel’s flag. By this reasoning, the flags of Denmark, Sweden and Iceland are ‘discriminatory’ against non-Christians.”

Adalah claims that laws benefiting those who completed military service discriminate against Arabs, ignoring the fact that thousands of Arabs, including Bedouin and Druze, serve in the armed forces and are allotted the same benefits package as other veterans. The database repeatedly misquotes and misconstrues laws, while 44 of the 101 items were proposals that never became law. (NGO Monitor)
