That is Palestine, This is Israel

He is not an actor.

His presentation is not nearly as slick as the performers in This is Palestine.

Mendi Safadi is real.

I was impressed when I met him in the Knesset in November 2011,

a real person who has worked hard for the Druze people and Israel.

It takes a lot of work to build a positive brand, to market something that people will buy,

at least one guy got it right,“Palestine is a state of mind.” 

While actors are trying to sell us Palestine, Israelis like Safadi are working to build something.

Safadi is concerned about people and what is happening to them in Israel, and in Syria.

He is not trying to sell you anything, but tell you the truth.

So who’s listening?

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
