I am a lucky Arab

While on these pages many call Israel an apartheid state despite its population being diverse both racially and religiously. Here is a story of an Arab man and his family that did not flee in 1948 despite the calls on the radio at the time by Arab leaders to do so. Let me remind indymedia readers that Israel today is 20% Arab-Israeli and these Arabs vote and full citizenship rights. Nor are they required to convert to Judaism. This is just one story, though sadly, the author it unknown.

Arabs try to brake campaign for sanctions on Sudan

Many groups have called for Secretary of State Colin Powell and President George W. Bush to use the "g" word to describe the conflict. Washington has thusfar balked because declaring that genocide is occurring in Sudan requires the USA to intervene in some way. Sudan is not an oil-rich region like Iraq.

While Israel is roundly criticized on all occasions, the Arab countries prefer a low profile for Arab on Arab violence.
