Please help ARAB terror victims....

Because that's what theJewish Agency for Israel is doing! Arutz sheva reports that the agency is using its terror victims' fund for families of Israeli Arabs killed in the shooting attack in Shfaram in August. With all the problems that have occured recently, not to mention the Isreali families that are living below the poverty line, this is an outrage!

I fail to see the outrage, this is what makes the state of Israel so great - they are Israeli Arabs, citizens of Israel, innocent victims of the shotings just like the jewish ones. Imagine the "outrage" if Israel or the Sochnut did not help them?

Hey you don't have to agree with me. I don't think those funds should be appropriated to Arabs. The original use for the funds as the article states is "used exclusively for Jewish victims of Arab terror to date" if they didn't give them funds who would make a fuss? They have not done so until now? Why change the policy? Do you honestly think that this will bring peace to the middle east?

A victim of terror is a victim of terror. Peace in the middle east will never come if people continue to dehumanize their enemies. To say that an Arab victim of terror does not deserve the same compensation as a Jewish victim of terror is the epitome of dehumanization. It's unconscionable. That an Orthodox blog is appalled by this makes me wonder whether fundamentalist religions of any stripe are not truly anti-human, anti-peace, and ultimately anti-HaShem.

the sochnut is the jewish agency for israel, not the jewish agency for jewish terror victims.

EV, well I have news for you..there will never be peace in the middle east and personally I think you are fooling yourself if you believe that. The Arabs are interested in one thing only (at least most are)they will not stop until they have all of Israel. That's my opinion not one you must agree with.

The Arabs say the same exact thing about the Jews - "they are interested in one thing only (at least most are)..." If you believe there will never be peace between Israel and Palestine then what's the point? And what's the solution? Endless war? Mass deportations? Genocide? I'm not defending Arab atrocities, but unless we work towards a better future, we're killing ourselves.
