Israeli Arabs: We want to be Israelis

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/12/israeli-arabs-want-to-be-israelis.html

This poll confirms the results of many others - Israeli Arabs want to remain in Israel. However, increasing numbers of them want to be known as "Palestinians" - they want to have their Israeli citizenship and destroy it at the same time, it seems.
