How does Israel flourish, surrounded by hate?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator Sheila Gunn Reid
 

It’s hard to imagine how Israel is able to not only persevere, but flourish. The left universally condemns Israel as an apartheid state and its theocratic neighbours want to push it into the sea. 

But somehow, Israel remains the only place in the Middle East where democracy, liberty and human rights flourish for all.

And I want to know how. I want to know what it’s like to be a normal person, doing normal things while living with the threats of bombings, stabbings and terror tunnels.

That’s why I’m going there to see for myself, along with my Rebel colleagues, so we can report the truth back to you.

We’re going to show you the human side of Israel that the mainstream media doesn’t want you to see.

Can you help? If you value The Rebel's independent journalism, you can help us crowdfund our trip at RebelIsrael.com.

Thanks! And check that page as well for all our upcoming reports!

Israel confronts the threat of terrorism 24/7 each day, basically forever. Meantime, San Francisco sees no threat from Islam and has decided to pull out of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) due to their fear it targets Muslims unfairly.
Can it get any more bizarre than this?
We have to give Islam credit. A billion and a half strong political entity has managed to convince the fools on this planet that they are a minority worthy of protection from detection. What folly.

@space Moose …I’m in favour of buying an Israeli Weapons Industry (IWI) Tavor bullpup if I can ever afford one.

Sure beats spray and pray five times a day with an old school AK.

Here is the head of the Palestinian Authorities humble refugee tent in Ramalla..

Here is another example of a Palestinian refugee tent built on land which Israel has the legal right according to the Oslo Accord to demolish because it is illegal construction….but those mean old Jews just decided to leave it alone because it wasn’t exactly an eyesore….

The reallly nasty Palestinian refugee camps were all in Lebanon…which were used as a beach head to drive out the Christians and other kuffars.

Here is some examples of the privation in Gaza….

That’s the open air market , I hope theREBEL takes a walk around the new Gaza shopping mall. Trick is to go there first so you don’t get messed up with passport stamps.

Space Moose sanctions for what?

I am in favor of boycott divestment and sanctions.

Oops I’ll figure it out eventually. Thought I had. How do you copy and paste a link with an iPhone?

Good idea to get a leg up on living life surrounded by those who hate you.

Luv’ the Ash Wednesday smudge. Momento, from the dust of the earth you were made, and to dust thou shalt return. Momento (remember)! Keep the faith and may you never be ashamed to bear the cross of Christ. =]

They are realists and do what is needed.

Israel is a great and honest and hard-working nation of freedom and democracy. It is surrounded by Islamic scum. Its detractors world-wide are evil human garbage.

Love to have gone with you! How does it survive? Israel is the apple of God’s eye! That’s how she has been protected.
