True Jewish - Arab Co-existence (No joke, I really mean it this time...)
It's ironic, that within the city of Hebron, a place that the Israeli media relishes in describing as being full of the most extreme, hostile, Arab-hating, gun-toting "settlers", that one can find genuine co-existence taking place between Jews and Arabs (courtesy of Arutz 7):
Arab leaders in Hevron have contacted the city’s Jewish leaders for help in getting rid of self-proclaimed anarchist volunteers who, they complain, are destroying their traditional way of life... Several local Arab residents told the Kol Ha’Ir newspaper that the activists - many of whom are members of the International Solidarity Movement - have been exposing the local youths to drug use and sexual promiscuity...
The two sides agreed to have Arabic-speaking Jewish observers along Hevron’s main thoroughfares to replace the anarchists in ensuring calm between the city’s Jewish and Arab populations. The left-wing activists would then be informed by the local Arab population that they appreciate their offer to help, but that they are no longer needed.
So, there you have it, Jews and Arabs co-existing and uniting to fight against a common enemy - an enemy who threatens not only the community's physical security, but also the community's traditional way of life that serves as the very foundation for the Jewish and Arab residents of Hebron.
If Jews and Arabs can find a way to get along - in Hebron of all places - then maybe, just maybe, there is still hope for some type of peaceful co-existence between Arabs and Jews in Israel (within the boundaries set by Jewish law - Ger Toshav / resident stranger status).
