Photo Of The Day: Tyred Of Apartheid Allegations Edition


Today I was very proud to witness and record The Real Israel in action. Travelling on a highway in Jerusalem with bumper to bumper traffic this afternoon, an elderly Arab driver with a flat tyre needed help.

An IDF truck pulls over in front of him to help change his tyre. I asked him permission to publicise this and he very happily agreed.

In the real Israel (not the one the media wants you to think exists), the Israeli army is a deeply compassionate army that does not discriminate between people in need and as we see here this is embedded in their training; to pull over in the scorching heat on their own volition to provide help to an Arab they do not know.

I personally see this thing a lot and will need to start taking more photos.
