‘If Not For Israel, I Probably Would Be Illiterate, Penniless, Herding Sheep’: Young Israeli Arab Woman Denounces Israel-Haters | Eastern North Carolina Now

“It just doesn’t match the truth; it doesn’t match the reality. They need to go and read the facts."

    A young Israeli Arab woman fiercely slammed the canard used by anti-Semites that Israel is an apartheid state, pointing out that Israel gave her an opportunity to become an electrical engineer with a master's degree from Stanford University rather than remaining penniless and illiterate like her mother.

    "Israel gave us everything that it could give us even though we were Arabs and they're calling Israel an apartheid," she noted of Israel's critics. "They're calling Israel, making ethnic genocide. And this point is actually like puzzling for me because 25% of the Israeli population is actually Arabs. Most of them are Muslims, more than 20% [of the population] are Muslims. I'm one of them, right?"

    "And the Arabs in Israel are getting like equal rights, like they're citizens for everything, getting welfare, education, health care, anything that a Jewish citizen would get," she stated. "So how can you call this an apartheid or committing ethnical genocide?"

    "I was born to a Bedouin family," she said. "Bedouins are nomadic Arabs. My mother was and is penniless and illiterate. She doesn't know reading and writing because her parents didn't believe that women have the right to go to school; they should be on the fields and herd the sheep."

    Then she praised Israel: "Israel, after it was founded, forced all children to go to school. It's like mandatory. And it couldn't stand that there are girls who are not getting educated. If not for Israel, I probably would be illiterate, penniless, herding sheep somewhere in the [Galilee area of Israel]."

    "But I have an electrical engineering degree; I have a masters from Stanford University and I have my rights to live my life the way that I wanted to live them," she enthused. "Israel gave us everything that it could give us even though we were Arabs."

    "People are talking about apartheid and ethnical genocide," she asserted. "It just doesn't match the truth; it doesn't match the reality. They need to go and read the facts. And it's funny that sometimes it comes from intelligent students at elite universities saying this kind of nonsense."

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
