    First Muslim Cabinet Minister for Israel

    JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel was on the verge of installing the first Muslim Cabinet minister in its 58-year history Monday after the government overwhelmingly approved the appointment.

    Parliament was scheduled to convene to give final approval to Raleb Majadele's appointment, which the government billed as a step toward equality for Muslim Arabs, Israel's largest minority.

    Not too surprising. Israel has many Arab muslim citizens. Apparently they are the peaceful ones.

    Yes, it's not the citizens who have the complaints; it is the occupied.
