Arab Israelis (Palestinians who have Israeli passports, and reside inside the State of Israel – inside the green line) were always considered as second class citizens. Some Israeli might tell you otherwise and this is bullshit, since the State of Israel is the only democracy in the middle east. And no matter what you tell them they will always be like “Look at the Arab world. Look what’s happening in Syria and Iraq. Would you rather have ISIS/IS taking over you?” Just because I’m against what’s going on in the rest of the Middle East doesn’t have to make me pro-Israel, okay?
Okay, let’s take a step back and talk about my rights as a citizen inside Israel. I do have my own rights: I study, I work and I pay taxes. Most of my taxes go to the army who’s operating in the West Bank and Gaza, giving hell to my friends who live there. How lovely.
I must respect the state of Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East and must appreciate the fact that they’re not killing me, like they’re doing to the people in Gaza.
Arabs in Israel were always treated like second class citizens, there has always been a discrimination against them, the same kind of discrimination against the African American or any minority group in the US.
If we have any problem, we can “Go to Gaza or the West Bank” and the Israeli government “won’t bother” us. That’s what they said. Won’t bother us. I wonder how that can actually happen.
I’m not going to get into all this right now. Except that I’m proud of the Israeli government for taking that mask off and for once not pretending that it’s an actual democracy. That finally there is a national law that says that Israel is now a democracy for the Jewish people, ignoring the equal rights of all the minority groups. That now it’s no longer an actual democracy. Thank you for taking that mask off and telling the truth.
Now we, Arabs, can wear these:
It suits us, right?
But of course we can’t say anything because of the Holocaust, and we don’t want to come off as Anti-Semitic. We just have to deal with the fact that the Jewish people are the chosen people, and they are ten time better than us, and we’re low class because we are Arabs. Thank you Israel.
Now, don’t be surprised if you hear that I got arrested, because the Israeli government has the right to arrest anyone who posts anything against the State of Israel. Harming the State of Israel in any possible way, may it be verbally or poetically, can cost you to go to jail. That’s called Self Defense, and the State of Israel has the complete (national and international) right to defend itself.
