Sometimes, some of our best advocates are on the other side!
Case in point: This anti-Israel student at McGill University, responding to materials pointing out the relatively high standard of living of Arab-Israelis, disseminated by Israelis who traveled to Canada for StandWithUs Canada’s WordSwap – a dialogue on the Middle East.
“What are you talking about? This is a propaganda! You cannot compare the minority in Israel with the Arab in other countries because Israel is a democratic state.”
Oh mystery student, thank you for pointing out Israel is a democracy among the dictatorship Arab states. A point well made!
I guess with her parting words “This is propaganda for Israel”, she meant to characterize what she felt she just said.
Bonus: The guy who told her to stop yelling was a Turk having a polite discussion with the Israelis.
