Muhammad Zoabi – I Have Risked My Life

by Muhammad Zoabi Wednesday, Sep. 30, 2015 at 7:49 PM

Palestinians Standing with Israel

I have risked my life
Got disowned by many of my family.
Been almost killed.
Fled the country and could barely live as a teenager.
Came back home, knowing that it's still dangerous, knowing that my life would never be the same.
I am still being threatened and harassed by many of those who’re against the simple right of the Jewish people to have a state of their own. It’s not only me being harassed and threatened, almost every non Jew who dares to stand with the Jewish people and their right to be an independent nation amongst the nations of the Earth put their lives at risk.
And all of that was because i dared to speak my truth.
Its all because i dared to proudly and with no hesitation say that i am in indeed a proud Arab, but also a proud Israeli Zionist!
But apparently I am not a Zionist according to Bat-Zion Susskind-Sacks, who writes, “One cannot, I am afraid, be a Zionist without being Jewish. One can, however, be a non – Jewish supporter of Zionism…”
I do not think it courageous, loving or honourable to blog behind a computer telling people who or what they are not. It is hurtful and destroys people and it is not the first time. As a proud Zionist I want to end hatred and speak of courage.
Courage is my mother, Sarah Zoabi, who appeared on national TV stating her pride to be an Israeli Zionist Arab Muslim, hoping to encourage other Israeli Arabs to “Come out” and speak their truth.
Courage is Father Gabriel Naddaf who is doing an amazing job integrating Israeli Christians into the Israeli society and encouraging them to serve in the army. It is because of his efforts, the number of Christians serving has only increased.
Courage is my dear friend Kay Wilson who was butchered with a machete by Arabs, fought back with a pen knife and later despite her horrific trauma & injuries reached out to me, hid me & helped me find refuge.
Courage is a Floridan Christian community who sacrificed everything, took me in like a son, knowing that wherever I would be, they as my protectors would also be in danger.
Courage is Anett Haskia, an Israeli Muslim who’s doing her best to start a political career in order to stop the corruption and hate the Israeli-Arab leadership is spreading.
Courage is Qanta Ahamd, a Muslim American who’s publicly speaking against radical Islam and anti Semitism in the Muslim world.
