When Shlomo Sand published a landmark book on the intolerant nationalism of Zionism earlier this year, and the urgency of Israel becoming a society of its citizens, the New York Times called him a crackpot. But Sand actually knows Israeli attitudes. As does Ynet, which characterizes a poll of Israeli high school students as reflecting "racism":
[M]ore than half of them believe that Arabs should not be allowed to vote in Knesset elections. One out of every six students would not want to study in the same class with an Ethiopian or an immigrant from the former Soviet Union, and 21% of them think that "Death to Arabs" is a legitimate expression.
Nearly every second student would refuse orders to evacuate settlements.
