Libya trip exposes wretchedness of representatives of Israeli Arabs – Haaretz – Israel News.

Written by an Isaeli Druze, this article takes a look at the people who purport to represent Israeli Arabs. I have found it very interesting to speak with Arabs from other countries, only to discover the absolute antipathy they hold toward those whom they derogotarily call ” ’48 Arabs “. The term refers to Arabs who remained inside Israel when the State was declared in 1948.

In dissing the current Arab leadership, Salman Masalha, the author, describes a scene during the conference where, “MK Talab al-Sana, asked the tyrant (Kaddafi) whether Libya would open its universities to Arab students from Israel. And his wish was immediately granted. Instead of concern for schools and education here [in Israel], al-Sana wants to send students to Libya.”
