Gambling in the casino!

The Guardian (and no doubt others) tells us by way of headline, "Israel's proposed 'Jewish oath' for new citizens sparks racism row." Even Gideon Levy, respected Ha'aretz columnist, quoted in the article, says "Remember this day. It's the day Israel changes its character ... From now on, we will be living in a new, officially approved, ethnocratic, theocratic, nationalistic and racist country."

Really? This is a country which for decades has been building "Jewish-only" housing, a country that builds "Jewish-only" roads, a country which gives the tiniest fraction of its budget to Palestinian communities within Israel for basic things like education and sewage, and now, because of this loyalty oath, we're going to decide it's really a racist country? Please.
