Note: At the end of this post, I’ll tell you who said the following words, but as you read on, try to give a “qualified” guess: What kind of person would speak like this ?
“The Arab world has many enemies and Israel should have been at the bottom of the list”.
The real enemies of the Arab world are:
“..corruption, lack of good education, lack of good health care, lack of freedom, lack of respect for the human lives..”
(Arab) dictators’ atrocities against their own people are far worse than all the full-scale Arab-Israeli wars :
“In Syria, the atrocities are beyond anybody’s imaginations.”
“..isn’t the Iraqis the ones who are destroying their own country”?
“Wasn’t it Tunisia’s dictator who was able to steal 13 billion dollars from the poor Tunisians”?
“.. how can a child starve in Yemen if their land is the most fertile land in the world” ?
Why would Iraqi brains leave Iraq in a country that makes 110 billion dollars from oil export” ?
“Why do the Lebanese fail to govern one of the tiniest countries in the world” ?
Meanwhile, in Israel:
“Israel now has the most advanced research facilities, top universities and advanced infrastructure.
Many Arabs don’t know that the life expectancy of the Palestinians living in Israel is far longer than many Arab states and they enjoy far better political and social freedom than many of their Arab brothers.
Even the Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip enjoy more political and social rights than some places in the Arab World.
Wasn’t one of the judges who sent a former Israeli president to jail is an Israeli-Palestinian” ?
“..the Palestinians are happier and in better situation than their Arab brothers who fought to liberate them from the Israelis. Now, it is time to stop the hatred and wars and start to create better living conditions for the future Arab generations”.
