Israeli media are trumpeting new data which shows that 40% of Arabs between the ages of 18 and 22 do not work or study.
We have many problems with Arabs, but this is not one of them. In Israeli society, working at this age is not particularly encouraged. Young Jews serve in the army, then study. Arabs need do neither, so they can enjoy their free time. From the mid-20s on, Arab and Jewish employment stats are similar.
