3. Can you tell us ANY Arab country which offers Jews the right to be citizens, vote, own property, businesses, be a part of the government or have
ANY of the rights which Israeli Arabs enjoy? Any Arab country which gives those rights to Christians? How about to other Arabs? Wouldn’t you just
LOVE to be a citizen of Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iran, or Syria?
Ooh, Ooh! I know the answer to that one. It's Iran.
Ok, it's Persian so not Arab, but for all the anti-Iranian propaganda about Iran wanting to kill all the Jews, they have a large Jewish population
who enjoy the same rights as any other citizen, own land and businesses and have political representation. All this despite Israel trying to pay them
to leave Iran which is, as they point out quite firmly to Israel, their home.
Israeli Arabs do NOT have the same rights as Jewish Israelis and are second class citizens. Before the state of Israel was created by outsiders,
there were Muslims, Christians and Jews all living among each other and it was these outside influences and mainly European Jews who have caused all
the bloodshed. They even tried to wipe out the existing Sephardi Jewish population by deliberately irradiating their children, and we are supposed to
back the perpetrators of such premeditated and barbaric actions?
Sorry, I know there are wrongs committed by both sides but a little historical perspective shows what the inhabitants have had to put up with since
the influx of hardline radical Jewish bigots.
Leaving aside the whole "Gods chosen people" and religious angle which, by the way, only applies if you happen to believe the written word of men
was dictated to them by their chosen deity, then we are left with simply what is right and acceptable. Actions which other countries and their people
are criticised and held accountable in world courts for, Israel acts out with impunity, never being made accountable and suffering the weight of
international law. Anybody who does speak out in the press or politics is usually destroyed by the powerful backers of Israel embedded in most
All I can say is that Israeli intelligence must have some real juicy negatives or taped conversations to share of our leaders' little indiscretions
in order to maintain such an iron grip. Not to mention of course all the US money that flows to Israel in the guise of aid, a lot of which then flows
back and is distributed to political backers as "campaign" funds which the leeches in power are only too willing to accept.
