But Absolute Sweden's misleading claims are nothing new - for years there has been a shameful campaign by the likes of Itamar ben Zvi to portray coexistence in Jaffa in this dark light. Just I can tell yo from direct experience and facts on the grounds that this is definitely NOT TRUE and no Arab or Jew in Jaffa take it seriously. And in case you consider that I must be some deluded leftist, there is at least one former Tzahal spokesman living in Jaffa who would tell you exactly the same. As would all of my Jewish friends in Jaffa, that I meet every day in Arab coffee shops. As for the 'Ajami case, most commenters have no clue about Israeli and international laws on housing and property issues - still they go on commenting. The case will go through the courts, and I'm pretty confident that the Arab families will eventually win (they have a pretty strong case). But the whole balagan is not surprising, since HUGE economic interests are engaged, and housing issue all over Tel Aviv is hot.
