Arab Women Be Careful

There are reports of riots now in Jerusalem.

But I do not hear anything. No helicopters overhead, no sirens.

While, Israel haters are out for blood in the media today.

Yesterday, what I saw was nothing like what they spew.

On my way to Modiin for the overwhelming funeral of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali,

I saw this Arab woman walking near the Jerusalem Central Bus Station.

Why did I stop rushing to my ride to take a photo of her?

This is the bus stop that was blown up two years ago and a woman was killed.

Yesterday reminded me of being on my way to the Fogel funeral.

All of Israel was furious at the brutal murder of sleeping children and family.

And also an Arab woman was alone at the same bus stop.

Spew away Israel haters, the Arab women know they are safe in Jerusalem, Israel,

as long as their suicide bomber friends are not around.


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

    Jews do not assault women like the Egyptian Arabs sexually assault their own women.

    Your photo is proof of the clear difference in the values of the Jews and the Arabs.

      Well, the streets are not quite now, but it is still safer for women to walk alone than in most places in the world.

    There is wretched political violence in a selection of Arab countries and places adjacent. Bracketing that out, you run through the list of countries in the Near East, North Africa, and Central Asia, you see that few have homicide rates exceeding that in New York State (i.e. above 4 per 100,000). Those which do are three post-Soviet republics, Pakistan, and the Sudan. It’s doubtful that street crime of the violent sort is much of a problem in the Arab world. Egypt, with a homicide rate of 3.8 per 100,000 and several years of disorder under its belt, is one of the more insecure loci.

    Also what they track as a “murder rate” likely does not include thing it would here. For instance women here will report sexual assault MUCH more, also U.S. includes things like honor killings in our murder rate…you get the idea.

      This study is not clear about what it’s sampling frame was. I gather they corralled media reports identifying honor killings during a certain time period. In any case, whatever frame they used, they found 130 cases in 29 countries. I tend to be skeptical that undercounting of honor killings skews the numbers much.
