Every time anyone speaks about moving Arabs out of Eretz Yisrael, the first question is: “But where will they go?” This article answers that question.
Two weeks ago, Yahoo Business Insider published an article that states that a whopping 800,000 foreign workers have left Saudi Arabia in the last two years. 800,000!
Nowhere in the article does it mention where they went – because that wasn’t the point. They simply left. They went wherever their hearts and dreams took them. They left permanently and I highly doubt many even looked back.
You might think these people were replaced by local Saudis, but actually the opposite is true. The article states clearly that employers have a serious problem because “young Saudi men and women are lazy and not interested in working.” Saudi Arabia needed these workers and, because they left, a gaping hole in its workforce now exists. The article further states that employers are “struggling to fill jobs.”
Hmm… 800,000 workers are needed in a Muslim Arabic-speaking country… Any ideas who could possibly replace those missing workers?
Let’s think this through for a moment. Saudi Arabia is a country with a tremendous amount of open, undeveloped land. Yes, much of that land is desert, but look what Israel did to its own desert. It made it bloom!
Israel is leading the world in desalination plants and agriculture hi-tech and would gladly help its neighbor develop and populate the desert. People moving there could get large tracts of land for free and build the homes of their dreams. Think about an Arab crammed into a little apartment in Gaza, Ramallah, or Hebron. With a guaranteed job in hand, why would he not move to Saudi Arabia and live in a palace?
Wait, I’m not finished yet. It gets even better! According to the Zehut party platform, all Arabs wishing to emigrate from Israel (Israeli Arabs as well as those living in the West Bank/Gaza) will be compensated for their property at market value. The State of Israel will purchase their homes and also pay all moving expenses.
So these Arabs will arrive in Saudi Arabia, a country whose language and religion they share. They will have money from selling their home, and the entire move won’t cost them a dime. They will have instant jobs, be able to have property 10 times the size of their current residence, and live a quality of life better than 90 percent of their Arab cousins. This plan protects their human rights and religious freedom and safeguards their financial future.
So, the next time someone asks, “But where will they go?” give them this article. If they truly want to help the Arabs of Israel secure a better future for themselves and their families, this plan must come to fruition.
