The asylum seeker, 36, cared for Kako Yamena after she was stabbed by an Israeli man in Tel Aviv, in 2014.03:54 09.02.16 | 0 comments
I'd like to point out to everyone who was against the protests that all the protests were the result of supporting a dictator in the first place. Mubarak didn't bring stability - he brought on the revolution. If you want more of the same, you'll get more of the same result. We should never ask people to endure living under a dictatorship when we ourselves would never accept it. It is selfishness in the extreme and every person should be above that. I am also cautious, but I am optimistic. The last two revolutions on the news have basically been bloodless. Perhaps the Arab world is maturing. For the first time, they did not kill hundreds or thousands of people to unseat a dictator. They showed a maturity we should all respect. Perhaps it is time we wish them well and demonstrate that if they keep following the same path, they will be welcomed even more as equal partners. I say we should set an example and show them we do actually care whether or not they are free and whether or not they gain their freedom and aspirations without violence. This is exactly the sort of maturity that Israel has wished for from the Arab world since decades and it's time to show them we always meant what we said.
