Arab communities worry over lack of personal safety and trust that police will take action.01:20 02.05.16 | 1 comments
In the current debate over the two-state soluton t'would seem there is a bit of deja vu. In Mandatory days the Brit Shalom, among them Dr. Judah Magnes, Martin Buber, Henritetta Szolld, and other peace minded Jews and Palestinian Arab natiionalist leaders suggested a nation where Jews and Arabs could share the governance of this land. They were trashed at the Bilfmore Hotel for being anti-Zonist. Heck, if you look through Jabotinsky's writing you'll find the same idea. If I read this paper, there was an item where the mayor of Jerusalem's actions are encouraging Palestinian Arabs in the city to opt of Israeli citizenship--it has more perks than being a Palestinian in a Palestinan State! So . .. it seems the two-state solution is not what some Palestinians Arabs want, either.
