Why Most Palestinian Arabs Love Israel

March 18, 2010

There is a very interesting survey that reveals whether the Palestinian Arabs living in Israel hate their country of choice. In this

The Israeli people live in peace.

The Israeli people live in peace.

survey, “77% of the State of Israel’s Arab citizens would rather live in the Jewish state than in any other country in the world, according to a new study titled ‘Coexistence in Israel’.”

We all know that most media institutions portray Palestine as the victim when in fact Israel is merely acting in self defense. In this great article by Edwin A. Lock of the Ayn Rand Institute, it is stated that “the Palestinians are the initiators of the violence–an indiscriminate violence in which they do not care whom they kill, whether soldier or child. Israel, in contrast, is acting in self-defense, in retaliation for such terrorism. And its response is aimed at those responsible for the violence and at the facilities from which they operate. (Any innocent noncombatants killed in the process are not the targets of the retaliation, and their blood is on the terrorists’ hands.)”

Now this survey confirms that even the Palestinian Arabs refuse to live in a dictatorship like Palestine. Many people are not aware that freedom and individual rights are nonexistent in most Arab dictatorships. The rights to life, liberty, property and pursuit of happiness are limited and restricted in Palestine and in most of the Arab world. Israel is the only state in the Middle East that respects individual rights. The Israelis brought technology, science, education, and economic progress in that barren areas which was once ruled by brutal mystic dictators.

Locke observes: “Consider that when the Jews came to Palestine, it was a desert. People were living in the same primitive manner as they had been since the time of Moses. The Jews brought Western knowledge and Western values to the Middle East. They turned an almost barren land into a modern, industrial civilization. They raised cities where there had been only dirt; they developed irrigated farms where there had been only dry sand; they built cars and trucks and planes where there had been mainly pack animals. They produced wealth where there had been only poverty. They brought freedom and individual rights to a land where these ideas were unknown.”

Indeed, the Palestinians do not seek to regain their freedom. Most Palestinians are guilty for their passivity and inaction. They are no doubt enemies of freedom. The Arab dictatorships reject the concept of individual rights and reason, and their goal is to spread of Islam because this political ideology is compatible with tyranny. Islam gives them the absolute power and authority to enslave their own people and maintain absolute political power. Like what Locke said, “Every Arab country is a monarchy, theocracy or some kind of dictatorship. Freedom of speech, property rights, free elections, and the separation of church and state are almost nonexistent. Speaking out against the rulers or against the Muslim religion leads to imprisonment or death. All attempts to start competing political parties are ruthlessly crushed.”

The brutal rule and ruthless dictatorship of the mystics and tyrants in the Arab world is the very reason why many Palestinians and Arabs migrated to Israel. Despite the anti-Antisemitism of the Arab world, the Israelis welcomed the Arab immigrants and respected their culture and human rights.

Politicalmavens.com published the following online article entitled 77% Palestinian Arabs: We like Living in Israel best.

77% Palestinian Arabs: We like Living in Israel best
By Judith A. Klinghoffer

It is difficult to find a more neglected story than the relative satisfaction of Palestinian Arabs living in Israel as is revealed from a recent Harvard Study. (Palestinians Arabs (including those living in greater Jerusalem) constitute 20% of the population). Aware of inconvenient polls which reveal that Palestinian living in Israel are vehemently opposed to becoming citizens of Palestine, the researchers did their best to lower the satisfaction number by phrasing the question so as to receive the most negative number. They asked Palestinian Arab if they would rather live in Israel or in any other country in the world.

Let yourselves go, dream away, they researchers seemed to be say. Fantasize. How about living in Dubai, in Britain or the US?

What a disappointment. Israel’s Arab citizens refused to play along. The vast majority of them insisted that like Israel best.

77% of the State of Israel’s Arab citizens would rather live in the Jewish state than in any other country in the world, according to a new study titled “Coexistence in Israel”. The study was aimed at examining the relations between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens on the State’s 60th anniversary, and included 1,721 respondents.

The findings also revealed that a great majority of Israel’s citizens (73% of the Jews and 94% of the Arabs) want to live in a society in which Arab and Jewish citizens have mutual respect and equal opportunities.

66% percent of Jewish citizens and 84% of Arab citizens believe the Israeli government investments should begin now, and not wait until the end of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

The greater commitment of Israeli Arab to integration may be explained in their differing views of its benefits. 90.8% of the Arabs believe improved coexistence would be economically beneficial while only 48.1% of the Jews do. 88.7% of the Arabs but only 43.9% of the Jews see cultural benefits in coexistence.

Most significantly, both communities acknowledge the security risks posed by greater integration. Only 23.5% of the Jews and 70.7% of the Arabs believe that greater integration would increase Israel’s security.

The fact that 40% of Jewish citizens who believe greater integration to be a security risk are none the less supportive of such measures is quite remarkable as is the fact that a third of the Arab Israeli population are willing to acknowledge the risk involved.

Other polls similarly demonstrate that to achieve better integration, most of the Arab citizens of Israel support voluntary national service. They are not subject to compulsory military service though they may volunteer to serve and some do.

Yet a poll carried out by University of Haifa last month revealed that 75 percent of Israeli Arabs between the ages of 16 and 22 support voluntary national service. The poll also found that the vast majority of the Arab public is unaware of the national service. 77.4 percent overall and 79.6 percent of youth said they know little or nothing about the program. Moreover, the poll found that once given basic information about conditions in the national service and its goals, not only were Israeli Arab youth supportive of the idea, but so were 71.9 percent of all Arab men and 83.8 percent of all Arab women. In contrast, some 80 percent of members of Arab political parties opposed national service.

In other words, ideological diatribes aside, the attitudes of Israeli Arabs demonstrates that the Jewish state is doing a pretty good job accommodating it’s large Palestinian minority despite the trying circumstances under which she is forced to live.

    I LOVE ISRAEL
    The existence of the Zionist entity in the heart of the Arab-Muslim is in itself a strange Because the Zionist entity is not shared with the Arab world, anything that characteristics such as religion, customs Traditions and language. The existence of Israel within the Arab world is a big mistake, and constant tension In the Middle East also note since 1948. Such as the entry of foreign objects inside the human body begins Body fever, tension and fatigue and to ensure even go out foreign objects. To all Arab and Islamic countries to form the Ministry of Defence and one common to all States and the expulsion of the Jews From the Middle East. This is the best choice for Arabs and Jews in that one because the Jewish people will never feel the stability and comfort, but if Came out of Palestine, all Palestine greetings to all

      That’s because it’s written in your Koran that you have to annihilate the Jewish race. If the Arab Islamists put down its weapon, there would be peace in the Middle East, but if Israel puts down its weapon, there would be another holocaust and war all throughout the world.

      That piece of land was originally theirs. Read your Koran. Even your Koran states that the Jews existed and occupied that land 2000 years ago and you stole it from them.

      There is no such thing as Zionist terrorism. But there is Islamic terrorism not only in Gaza and the Arab world, but also throughout the rest of the world.

      Here’s a proof that even your Koran recognizes the Jews and Israel:

      Sura 5:

      [5:20] Recall that Moses said to his people (the Jews), “O my people, remember GOD’s blessings upon you: He appointed prophets from among you, made you kings, and granted you what He never granted any other people.
      [5:21] “O my people, enter the holy land (Israel) that GOD has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers.”

      THE QUR’AN SAYS:

      “To Moses We [Allah] gave nine clear signs. Ask the Israelites how he [Moses] first appeared amongst them. Pharoah said to him: ‘Moses, I can see that you are bewitched.’ ‘You know full well,’ he [Moses] replied, ‘that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has revealed these visible signs. Pharoah, you are doomed.'”

      “Pharoah sought to scare them [the Israelites] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him [Pharoah] together with all who were with him. Then We [Allah] said to the Israelites: ‘Dwell in this land [the Land of Israel]. When the promise of the hereafter [End of Days] comes to be fulfilled, We [Allah] shall assemble you [the Israelites] all together [in the Land of Israel].”

      “We [Allah] have revealed the Qur’an with the truth, and with the truth it has come down. We have sent you [Muhammed] forth only to proclaim good news and to give warning.”

      [Qur’an, “Night Journey,” chapter 17:100-104]

      And there are more Islamis terrorism. The Jews don’t blow buildings, historical monuments and places, etc. They’re not suicide bombers. ‘Some’ Muslims are!

        Hey, don’t mean to ofend you or anyone else. In all honesty, I felt like vomiting while reading some of the stuff it is writen here (by both sides), and this is because it seems to me that neither side is very well informed on what the other thinks. You simply assume that the other wants to kill you, and you made this assumtion based on what your government/country/school/family/friends told you. I believe you should stop thinking about what has been done becuase it was none of you who actually did it – don’t inheriet the problem. You should begin to think about how piece and securty can be brought to both sides – accountability is not a realistic option.
        I tell you this based on the limited information I have from both sides, and I am committed to keep learnig about it.

        Peace, Salam, Shalom, Paz.

    Muslims are values for Israel, as every human being in a country. I live in a country (Hungary), where the greatest promoter and researcher (ignác Goldziher) of the islamic religion was also a jewishman. The (newborn) Palestinian nation has smarter and better-educated members than all other arab state have. Now the Israelis are disappointed because of the last intifada and of the emerging pressure on the Israeli state. But they have a great commitment to legalize their staying in their homeland, which is a homeland of also many arabs. Co-existence is the only way for these two neighboring countries. I think the Jerusalem wall will fall earlier than the ‘Peace Wall’ in Belfast.

      I know Ireland very well. The average person in N Eire did/does not want to commit terrorism. The Irish never had an empire like the Brits and you Islamists do. They’re are not suicide bombers nor do they want to wipe out entire populations. Don’t play the Ireland card, its a cheap device to compare it to the mid east. Not all Irish are gullible idiots who will commit violence on command.
