…and, you won’t hear the press saying anything about it, which is par for the course. But, here is a leader of an Arab village openly saying that life under Israeli rule is BETTER than life under Arab rule.
No, he’s not saying that Israeli rule is perfect. I’ve lived under Israeli rule, and I can tell you that Israelis are as prone to foolishness and mismanagement and general stupidity as anyone you’d find in… oh… Washington D.C.
And, because the world doesn’t want to hear anything good about Israel… well, this kind of news goes nowhere. But, let’s not worry about that and let the rest of the world will destroy itself by its own foolishness.
God bless Israel.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat is making good on a promise to improve the standard of living and infrastructure in the city’s Arab neighborhoods. One example is the East Jerusalem village of Umm Tuba near the large Jewish neighborhood of Har Homa. The municipality has resurfaced roads and built stylish brick sidewalks, and new classrooms have been added on to the elementary school.
“In recent years the municipality has really been making an effort with regard to the Arab population,” Umm Tuba resident Hassan Abu Tir told Israel Today. “We can go on yelling that Jews have no right to be in Jerusalem, unlike us Muslims, but life under Jewish rule is better for us than under Muslim rule.”
