Jews and Muslims have many similarities. They definitely can coexist. But both sides have to want it. And right now, the “Palestinian” leadership doesn’t.
Jews and Muslims and Coexistence
This video gets the point across in a creative way. Many people need concrete examples of what the issues are in the Middle East. They want to see how Jews treat their Muslim neighbors and vice versa. Well, this is one area that explains how Jews and Muslims can coexist in Israel under Israeli control but not in parts of Israel that are currently under “Palestinian” control.
Muslims work at cafes, doctors offices, pharmacies, and supermarkets in Israel. Go into areas controlled by the “Palestinian” authority. There will not be any Jews working there. A Jew would potentially be killed by extremists for accidentally making a wrong turn into a PA controlled city! But “Palestinians” are allowed in Israeli cities. Do you see the problem?
Israel’s fourth prime minister Golda Meir said it best decades ago. And PM Netanyahu has paraphrased her idea and said, “If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.”
And that is how simple the solution is. Israel wants peace. Israel embraces people of all cultures and religions. When the other side decides they will have “Palestinian” synagogues, maybe there can be peace.
