An Arab Right to Back Terrorism?

In recent months, the news has been filled with stories alleging that Israeli democracy is in decline. The coalition led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been accused of subverting the rights of political opponents and dissenters as well as those of the country’s Arab minority.
