As I understand it, we are all supposed to fawn adoringly over the state of Israel because it's, you know, a full-fledged democracy, or something to that effect. Apparently, not so much:
Israel bans Arab parties from coming election
Israel on Monday banned Arab political parties from running in next month's parliamentary elections, drawing accusations of racism by an Arab lawmaker who said he would challenge the decision in the country's Supreme Court.
Democracy: Because it's almost always a generally good idea. Except when it isn't.
