About as relevant as they are in South Africa with 10 percent of the 
country being white. They figured out a way to keep the Black majority 
down after the end of formal apartheid, so Israel should have no 
problems especially given the corrupt leadership in the West Bank. In 
fact, the real question facing the Arab masses is how to break through 
the religious and class distinctions that keep them from fighting 
effectively.
