i24 News’ anchor Lucy Aharish, an Israeli Arab, lashed out against a Gazan journalist who was a guest on her show last week, telling him that Hamas were to blame for the crisis in Gaza. The journalist, Alaa al-Mashehrwi, was asked about the current situation in Gaza. He began lamenting about the reality there, accusing Israel of war crimes, of occupying Gaza and of generating a humanitarian crisis, which he defined as ‘very bad, very strong and very dangerous’.

Lucy Aharish did not sit silent and allow the lies to be aired and cut him off, saying that Hamas leaders use civilians as human shields, hide weapons caches and launchers in civilians homes, and therefore they are responsible for the civilian casualties.

She called on al-Mashehrwi to go out together with other journalists and civilians, face Hamas and the Islamic Jihad and demonstrate against their use of the civilian population. She urged them to demand from Hamas that they stop firing into Israel, assuring him that once they stopped the suffering on both sides would stop.

    Well, there seems to be at least one decent, honest Israeli Arab in Lucy Aharish. Would that there were more. I cannot thank her; she is behaving as any decent human being should, which is exceptional in the Arab world.

  3. Tell them the truth

  4. Little baby boy, you don’t scare us.

    Anne – It’s not working at my end, either.

  6. Praying for the safety and peace for Israel, the Israeli people and the innocent Arab people. May the eyes of Israel’s enemies be opened and they declare peace.
