For PA-Palestinian Authority Arabs who want good, relatively high-paid work, with good conditions, there are two options:
- Get a job in Israel!
- Work for an Israeli business in Judea/Samaria/Jordan Valley.
Another two options for those who want more money:
- Be on the take of the PA-Palestinian Authority corruption!
- LEAVE HOME! Move to one of the rich Arab oil countries, or Australia, New Zealand etc. The Americas and Europe aren’t in great shape right now and not enthusiastic about welcoming more Arabs/Muslims. And since most enlightened countries don’t want more Arabs/Muslims and getting a piece of the “pie” is even more difficult, working for Israelis is high on the list and easiest to do.
All the claims that Arabs suffer when working in Israel or for Israeli companies in Judea/Samaria/Jordan Valley is just anti-Israel propaganda! I’ve been working with Arabs for over five years, and they love working for Israeli companies. They get better conditions, salaries etc. than they’d get if they worked for their fellow Arabs.
And for those who have to go through the Israeli “border control,” they do it the same as/along with Israelis. The inspectors aren’t allowed to make two types of lanes, one for Arabs and the other for Jews. That’s illegal. So, any delays are equally felt by Jews who live in Judea/Samaria/Jordan Valley and the Arabs who live nearby.
The Arabs pay the same as Jews in our stores and enjoy the same bargains. The only problem they have is their own PA-Palestinian Authority inspectors/police who frequently confiscate goods bought in stores like Rami Levi and Yafiz. That is what has been keeping them away. There used to be vans of Arabs coming for “shopping tours.” Some were local Arabs who didn’t have their own cars and others were tourists from Jordan and other Arab countries. Now we see much less of them. Their loss.
