Representatives from minority communities in Israel staunchly came out in support of the country as a Jewish and democratic state, at a human rights event held by the Zionist organization Im Tirtzu.
The conference titled Zionist Conference for Human Rights, was held in front of a packed room at the Zionist Organization of America House in Tel Aviv.
Individuals from the Muslim, Druse, Bedouin, and Christian Arab communities spoke about Israel’s role in defending human rights, in a mixed crowd that also included a rabbi, a Kibbutznik and a homosexual…
“Anyone who wants human rights in the Middle East has only one option - to connect to the Jewish state that preserves human rights,” said Ronen Shoval, founder and chairman of Im Tirtzu.
One objective of the conference is “to break the monopoly of human rights” that the “extremist anti-Zionist forces” currently have on the issue and to share the term, “human rights” with the entire political spectrum, he said.
Anet Haskia, an Arab-Israeli Muslim from Acre, declared, “I am a proud Zionist,” and that she is against a Palestinian state and a division of the country. “There are a lot like me,” she added and said her daughter is the first Muslim to be enlisted in the Golani Infantry Brigade.
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
For many centuries, so-called Middle East conflicts, including some in Africa, have been fueled by Arab tribal and inter-Islamic theological hate, as well as by personal ambition of many Muslim tyrants. Creation of Israel has been actually a positive event, causing unification of the Muslim mob against Jews and other infidels - mainly Christians. As a result, it has reduced the number of Muslims killed by wars between Shiites against Sunnis, like the one we are witnessing in Syria and Iraq; state conflicts as the Iran-Iraq and Iraq-Kuwait wars and endless stream of tribal skirmishes!

The prize was awarded for the unit's extraordinary achievements and operational creativity. (Self-hating Jewish left tried to discredit religious Jews for not serving in the IDF.
