Israeli-Arabs and Missiles

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS

Submitted by Frederick Bainhauer (United States), Jul 21, 2006 at 12:02

Israeli Arabs don't seem to know where their bread is being buttered. Arabs as citizens of Israel have a far better quality of life than do those who chose to voluntarily leave during the conflict in 1947-48. Israeli Arabs however, can't seem to bring themselves to support their own nation:Israel.

When CNN and ABC reporters asked them who they blame for the recent deaths of two boys in Nazareth, most Israeli Arabs could not bring themselves to blame the Terrorists, or they blamed their own government. They have complained that the sirens did not work in Nazareth, and had they been working the lives of the two boys could have been saved.

What they forget is the Israeli Arab community on Nazareth chose to have the sirens disconnected, because they didn't like hearing them on Israel's memorial days. If Israeli Arabs are Israelis they shouldn't cheer missles falling on their own country.
