An Arabic Hero

An editorial written to the New York Times about Yad Vashem’s (Israel’s Holocaust museum) refusal to honor an Arab man who saved this woman’s family:

So for anyone that thinks Arabs and Jews are destined to be enemies, obviously this is proof that they are wrong.  And there are many other stories like this: stories of friends before the creation of Israel and Arabic and Palestinian heroes of the Holocaust.  I have heard many.  We aren’t meant to hate each other.   That is a lie that has been created because of the current conflict.

The fact that the Israeli government and officials like the ones at Yad Vashem actually call themselves Jews really astounds me.
