202 THEY MUST GO

bportionate number of senior posts in the various ministries. bWarned Zayad: “If the Israeli Arabs do not obtain equality of brights within the state of Israel, they shall become citizens of banother state.”

bIt is rather frightening for those who have studiously re- bfused, until now, to look at the fundamental contradiction be- btween a Jewish state and one in which the Arabs actually de- bmand political representation that begins to move toward even- btual Arab democratic control. There is an intense measure of bhypocrisy in the manner in which we fall over ourselves in bfulsome praise of the Israeli democracy that allows Rakah to brave against the state when it has five members. Zayad and other bArabs are now demanding their proportionate share, and that is bquite another thing for all the liberal proponents of democracy. bThe call for greater Arab representation will be heard, however, bwith increasing intensity whether we like it or not, and as their bpopulation grows, they will sit in the Knesset without our blargess.

Justifications for this are already endlessly repeated. bWe are a majority, say the Arabs of those areas, and we wish to bcontrol our own destiny. We wish to live our own cultural and bethnic life. This area is Arab by virtue of its population, and we bdemand an autonomy that gives us the right to procure that b
