selective honesty

If Yousef Munayyer, Executive Director of The Jerusalem Fund, is trying to illustrate inequality in Israel, he may have scored an own goal.

He admits that he enters Israel as an Israeli citizen separately to his wife – as she is not an Israeli citizen.

In all of the many airports I have been in, there is always a separate entry for citizens of that country.  It seems fair that each country has its own rules for border control.

In his piece he also complains about a lack of democracy in Israel.  Perhaps he should be more honest and accurately represent the right of the Palestinians living in Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world.
