For the record, I wrote this September 27, 2020
No need to wait until enough Gentiles become Members of Knesset. The Government of the Jewish State needs to incorporate Gentile Ministers, and not as a token move.
So, I want in every government beginning with the present one, to add, one Druze, one Bedouin, one Christian-Arab, one Christian-Russian and (though they’re Jews, they’re often treated as not) also one Ethiopian Jew.
This is a broad centrist government or what?
These shouldn’t be token non-Jews under a vast Jewish majority but rather get powerful positions and are directly backed by the PM and each other.
Their influence should not be routinely voted away by majority rule. Rather, they should teach that real wisdom surpasses dictates by any majority and that a compromise can actually be better for society. Less is more. If agreed to by more people, it’ll create unity, peace, and stability.
Israeli democracy is still one of representation. You’re not at the table, you’re on the menu. It’s not enough to take some ‘nice’ measures for minority groups. They are an important part of the Zionist State and that should be represented in the Government. And they will enrich its wisdom.
This should not be executed piece-meal. In one swoop, the future should be here. “If you want it, it will not be a fairytale.” (Herzl)
I know that the government is too large as it is already. However, this is of crucial importance and should be done anyway.
Postscript: I don’t know why I didn’t include a Muslim-Arab. Freudian?
