The IDF Arabic-language spokesperson Avichay Adraee tweeted an image from someone at Islam’s holiest site, the Kabaa in Mecca, with a handwritten message wishing Jews a peaceful Sabbath, “Shabbat Shalom.”
Adraee commented, “How beautiful is coexistence and mutual respect!”
Arab media are fuming. They are assuming that someone who wishes a peaceful Sabbath for Jews must be Jewish themselves, and therefore this is proof of a Jew who infiltrated the Muslim-only city of Mecca and its holiest spot!
Because no self respecting Muslim would ever send good wishes to Jews!
This story shows not only that individual Muslims are getting more comfortable with being public about their interest in and friendship with Jews and Israel (since this was sent to the IDF’s Adraee) but also it proves that the Muslim claim to only be against Israel and not Jews is so much garbage.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
