Our Aiding Arabs. Why the Surprise?

6 0 0

A recent KAN announcement mentioned that many Arabs were helping victims of the Meron catastrophe and their families. Our Arabs from all corners of our country. Yet the broadcast came as a surprise to too many of our Jewish citizens.

We should be grateful and express our thanks to the many Arab families and organizations who demonstrated their willingness to help our Jews suffering from the Meron tragedy.

Why the surprise?

Why should we be surprised?

It is high time that we change our negativism and understand that the Arabs of Israel are full citizens of our country. When we endured the large forest fires which destroyed so much of the natural beauty in our country, our Arabs gave generously to the aid and helped out wherever they could.

Why? Not simply because they were Arabs. More so because they were our fellow citizens. Our forests were their forests and our loss was their loss.
