Unlike Muslm countries, Israel has no state religion, but rather contains some 15 recognized religions, There are no segregated roads as there are in Saudi Arabia. If Jews and Arabs do live in different areas in the country it is not through state-imposed segregation, enforced by legal means. Discrimination does not exist on the basis of race, religion or sex, and all groups have equal protection under the law.
