Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens enjoy real democratic rights.

“Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens
enjoy real democratic rights. Now, I want you to stop for a second and think about that.
Of those 300 million Arabs, less than one-half of 1 percent are truly free and they’re all
citizens of Israel. This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong with
about the Middle East; Israel is what is right about the Middle East.”
~ Benjamin Netanyahu to joint session of the United States Congress, May 23, 2011
