"Israel is a modern democracy and America's and Europe's
ally in the Middle East. All Israeli citizens - Christians, Muslims
and Jews - have freedom of religion and the right to vote. Ten Arabs
and 16 women are in Israel's parliament, and both men and women
have access to education, modern health care and good jobs. Israel,
like the U.S. and European Union, is a true democracy based on freedom
"Israeli schools, books and teachers teach peace, tolerance
and respect. In a region where there is so much hate and violence,
Israelis want the next generation to have hope and a better future."
"America's and Europe's ally, Israel, is a democracy in the

a bold initiative that will give Palestinians the entire
Gaza territory -and a hopeful future. Israel, a true
democracy, is looking for peace."
