Coalition Whip Legislation to Favor Israeli Christians over Muslims

"They're not really Arab, let's turn them into our allies."
Coalition Whip MK Yariv Levin (Likud) plans to support an already existing attitude with the Israeli Christian community, to distinguish themselves from Israeli Muslims. This, in turn, could start a positive trend among Muslims as well, who prefer life as Israeli citizens to the horror of life under Palestinian rule.

Dozens of Christian youths volunteer for service in the IDF each year, and the new draft law, currently in committee, will turn it into an obligation—alongside a national service option.

According to Levin, the Christians are “our natural allies, balancing against the Muslims who want to destroy the country from the inside. The Christians are as concerned as we are about the extremist Islam which discriminates against them, too.”

MK Levin is also hopeful that elevating the status of Israeli Christians will also inspire moderate Muslims, which, according to Levin, do not support the view of most Arab MKs.

In addition to favoring Arabs who are friends of the state, Levin promises, “we’ll use an iron fist and zero tolerance of Arabs who identify with the Palestinian State sponsored terrorism. Anyone who stretches the rope too tight will remain hanging in mid-air,” he threatened.

    As a Jew, I'd rather trust in a Christian arab than in a muzzy.

  2. Ronny Mol says:

    It is unbelievable that our Israeli government is going backwards over fake palestinians and now Xitians. If you knew a 10th of Torah, you would realize that both Christianity and Islam is fake. Instead of running after them, you should draft laws that students of Torah are exempt from government services including taxes. Is the Israeli government better than Paroah of the Haggada. Paroah did not enslave the tribe of Levi because they taught Torah to Klal Yisroel. Hashem help us, we need leadership like King David.

  3. Madeleine Touma Qudsi says:

    I think Levin is creating an issue a friction among Palestinians to distract them from any so called peace talks.

  4. Madeleine Touma Qudsi says:

    Since when you trust Christians than Moslems,,, to you they are all Arabs and Palestinians

  5. Anthony King says:

    Agreed. Islam is a political ideology. Xian isn't.

  6. Anthony King says:

    However, this seems like Israel is trying to separate Palestinians. You can't just site one letter and make it seem like all Palestinian Christians think that way.

  7. Leonard Butler says:

    This just proves to the entire world that Israel engages in apartheid. Europeans colonised the Middle East a few decades ago, claiming people of a certain faith have a right to another's land, and these European extremists are openly practising apartheid now. Shameful!

  8. James Ferguson says:

    Ah, bigotry. You'd think Jews would know better than to repeat it after being victims of it for so long.

  9. I wonder if the Levin thinks the Bedouin are no different than the Fellahin as a group. The fact is that Muslim Arab Bedouin have had fairly high support of the state. And, even among the Sunni Fellahin, why alienate those who support Israel? Instead of placing some above others, let's have real strategies for normalization and integration of minorities into Israeli culture.

  10. Elnaz Tmz says:

    Just because he says they are not Arabs doesn't mean it's true. All Palestinian Christians claim they are Arabs, and if that's the case then they are Arabs. His problem is he hates Muslims, and that is probably what represents Israeli policy. They can't even differentiate between Muslim and Arab.

  11. Stop projecting your hate onto others. Muslims suck the hatred in with the mothers milk.

  12. Elnaz Tmz says:

    Warren Raymond I'm not Muslim, I just respect the equality of all peoples no matter their religion or race. This is something the Jews need to learn quickly.

  13. Kuchar Roman says:

    Elnaz Tmz islam is based on nothing but hate they are evil they kill do everything to make there point of the the make believe Koran the devil who believes in islam is a layer to him self and all of man kind

  14. Kuchar Roman says:

    Let's face it islam is and always will be nothing but hate
