CiF Watch photo of the day: Herzl and Mohamed

A guest post by AKUS 

I received this picture from a friend:

The bearded man on the huge picture – on a well-known landmark at the entry to Herzliya near the Tel-Aviv-Haifa highway – is the founder of modern Zionism, Theodor Herzl.  

The poster says:

Contractor: Mahmid Mohamed licensed contractor – stone and marble works

Interesting, isn’t it? An Arab contractor proudly displays a sign promoting his business as he repairs a landmark featuring Herzl.

Oh, and by the way:

A recent poll found that 52.8% of Israeli Arabs are proud to be Israelis while only 28.3% of respondents said they were “not at all proud” to be Israelis.

The original Zionist dream was of a country where Jews and Arabs would live together in peace.

As Herzl said: If you wish it, it is no dream

  1. How cruel you are Akus. How Israeli. Just think how many of our dear friends live for the evidence of mistrust and dislike among the many different groups, people of different origins, religions and political persuasions in Israel. And you have just shown how they get along.

    Shame on you.

  2. “52.8% of Israeli Arabs are proud to be Israelis while only 28.3% of respondents said they were “not at all proud” to be Israelis.”

    Does that mean we can look forward to an article by Gideon Levy saying that a majority of Israeli Arabs are unhappy and not proud to be Israeli?

  3. 52.8 percent of Israeli arabs prefer to be Israelis they are obviously the intelligent ones who have worked out just how much they have in Israel and just how much they would lose in the mythalogial palestine after no doubt finding out thanks to the fact that radio tv and the internet do not respect national boundaries what life is like under arab-islamic mis-rule
