stop the racist ideas that all arabs are anti-israel

Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: Shoebat's response to Moshe Katz

Submitted by Ploni Almoni (Israel), Aug 3, 2008 at 17:42

I live in Haifa and have lived in Israel proper for 6 years and have traveled inside the Palestinian territories many times. In this 6 years I have met many different kinds of people on both sides of the non existent border. I will not deny that many Palestinians and Arabs within Israel DO hate Israel and many also hate all Jews, HOWEVER I have met MANY people who do not. In Haifa you have a very special REAL peace between Jews and Arabs and one attitude I confront too often from JEWS is that NO Arab is sincere when it comes to living in peace with Israeli's and that ALL Arabs are anti-Israel deep inside. This is just blatant racism! Shame on any Jew that has not learned the ignorance and shamefulness of being racist! We should be embracing Arabs like Walid who are able to see history and politics without a pro-palestinian perspective.

Horay! to Walid and intellectualism and shame on anyone who assumes Arabs are not capable of critical thinking! The only road to peace is through intellectualism as well as love and racism has no place in either!
