Jews and arabs can get along

There was an interesting article in the USA Today like 2 days ago regarding good old flatbush . Nothing like some good free PR for our lovely community. Basically, they were saying how the orthodox Jews, the Muslims, and the Russians can all live side by side in peach and harmony, sans the dunkin donut incident. I was always waiting for an article about this to be written about the peace we have with our neighbors, and now finally the rest of this country can see how peaceful and civilized we can really be. The article also pointed out that the main reason is because what it comes down to, its all about business and not about one's beliefs. I'm OK with that. Which reminds me of reading about an article on Dubai a while ago, of how it is a welcoming city to the Jewish people as well, despite being in a pure Arabic country, because again, all it comes down to - they care more about making money than fighting. And what better religion to welcome into their desert than the wealthy Jewish business man. I was also pleased to see that many of the comments were positive towards Jews.

Also, I probably wont be able to blog much in the near future because my current job decided the block the internet, which occupied much of my dar. Now, i can have all day thinking on what to write about.

You beat me to it. I read the article while on vacation in AC.

Welcome to da club. My boss blocked my access too as I was online too much.

"my current job decided the block the internet, which occupied much of my dar."

Needs a little spellcheck.

"Jews and arabs can get along "

Don't we Jews wish that was the case in the middle east? Letting a tiny minority of Arabs who have positive (or tolerant) comments about Jews or using the city of Dubai as a representative example is not realistic and not accurate. It is one thing to offer hope that anything is possible; of course we already knew this. And that Jews want peace with Muslims - we also knew this also.
But outright delusion is a dangerous thing.

Well let's not forget that before the mass migration of Jews into Israel in the early and mid twentieth century, the Arabs were hardly the Jews biggest enemies. Actually, Christianity is responsible for far more anti-semitism than Islam - looking back at the past millenia or so - witness the crusades, inquisition, blood libels, etc.
Also, here in America, the Islamic community is far more educated and commercially succesful (not to mention westernized) than their counterparts in Europe and Africa. This probably has something to do with it as well.
Peace.
