8 Reasons Why Israel Apartheid Week Is Ridiculous

The international Israeli Apartheid Week hate-fests are really hard to comprehend if you have the smallest iota of knowledge, the tiniest bit of a brain with which to think. These ignorant individuals certainly do not read Israellycool often enough.

My list of real photos and posts would fill a book, but my top 8 no-brainers to refute the claims are:

  1. An Arab Supreme Court Judge oversaw the last Israeli election.
  2. Deputy Regional Cooperation Minister Ayoub Kara is on his way to Geneva to represent Israel in talks and Regional Cooperation Ministry Director General Hashem Hussein will accompany him.
  3. The Knesset has over 10% Arab members and a Muslim prayer room.

4. President Rivlin, with the Israeli Minister of Finance and Minister of Social Equality, holds joint meetings with the Arab Regional and Local Authority Heads at Beit Hanassi.

5. Islamic Judges, Qadis, administer Sharia law in official Israeli courts under the Israeli court system. New judges were recently sworn in at Beit Hanassi.

6. Arab women and girls have more freedom in Israel than anywhere else in Middle East. Where else would a girl wearing hijab sit in a park gazebo giggling, alone with a guy having a picnic lunch? Sorry no photo from today though it was such a cute scene.

7. President Rivlin hosted an Iftar meal to break the fast during Ramadan.

8. Various religious leaders lined up along a red carpet up to great the President of Kenya on his official state visit to Jerusalem, Israel.

The apartheid lie is simply ridiculous.


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 ten 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
