Skip to comments.Arab Like Me (GREAT insight into Arab mind from conservative Arab)

There are two kinds of Arabs in this world. Those who hate Jews, and those who dont. And in my life, I have met more of the former than the latter.
I am not proud to say that. Arabs will not like me for admitting it. But it is true. And it is something I wish the Obama administration understood. It is something Americans should know as the Arab Spring enters its second year.
The fact is, Arabs dont all look alike or think alike. But we are often pushed into a kind of groupthink, a kind of self-censorship that hinders our development and our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

It goes back 4000 years..........
There will be Arabs in Heaven, but not the kind that hate Jews.
I wonder if he actually meant “muslim” rather than “Arab”?
11 The angel of the LORD also said to her (Hagar):
You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,[a]
for the LORD has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyones hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward[b] all his brothers.
It will be confusing for some, no doubt, when they sit before the Great White Throne and realize the One judging them is Jewish.
Excellent article, thanks for posting
Ingrahams side kick for a while.
No, I think he means Arab. In my personal experience Christian Arabs, and they are a sizable minority in most Arab countries and fifty plus years ago the majority in Lebanon, are just as if not more likely to be antisemitic (I know, that’s a semantic contradiction) than their Muslim neighbors. The Middle East is a rather complicated place.
A genetic condition? What about mixed-race Arabs?
The hatred of Children of Israel goes all the way back to Ishmael and Issac, sons of Abraham. Ishmael’s mother was Hagar, and Egyptian, handmaiden to Sarah. Isaac was Sarah’s son. She had Abraham send Hagar and her son away so Isaac would be the only heir to his fortune, and the enmity began..........
“There are two kinds of Arabs in this world. Those who hate Jews, and those who dont. And in my life, I have met more of the former than the latter.”
I would say at least a minimum of 10% for Jews and 90% against.
My understanding is that Arabs ARE Semites.
I have nothing against Arabs, but I hate muslims...fair enough?
You are born an Arab, but in most cases you CHOOSE to become a member of the death cult...
The backlash he gets from arabs,is the same as the backlash Dr Jasser gets from islamists.
Isreal was setup for the Jews, Jordan for the Islamics and Lebanon for the CHRISTIANS. France screwed it up.
That's the real root of it. Lee Habib is a Christian Arab. While Christian Arabs who live among Muslim Arabs may pick up hatred of Jews by osmosis, the real source of the hatred is Islam.
What about the non-Arab, Asian Indonesians who hate the Jews? Or for that matter, almost the whole of Europe pre-1945 and many, today? All “descendants of Hagar”? You’re passage is making it sound as though anti-Semitism is a genetic condition. It’s not. It’s purely based on cultural issues.
And then you have the self-hating Jew...
A great book to read in this respect (In addition to all the Bernard Lewis books) is “Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America” by Brigitte Gabriel.
“I do believe Lee Habeeb used to be the producer of The Laura Ingraham Show. “
I thought Habeeb worked at the gas station that Al Bundy goes to?
I never said anything about ‘genetics’.
The hatred between Arab and Jews goes back to the beginning of history.
The hatred by others, non-Arab Muslims in particular, is thru the Koran’s teachings, so there’s a billion haters right there.
The European hatred of Jews comes from the Catholic Church of the Middle Ages, who promoted the ‘Jews killed Christ’ meme.
The Jews themselves were among the financial wizards of the post Roman era, so they were a convenient scapegoat for kings and the Church for being ‘Banksters’ of their day......
“The Arab Mind’’? Maybe Arabs should stop marrying their cousins. That might go a long way to improving the “Arab Mind’’.
Key sentence: “It is all about Arab self-doubt.”
Thanks C. Edmund Wright.
Thanks for posting.
I heard this smart guy substituting on the Dennis Parager show during the Hebrew holidays....he’s outstanding and a breath of fresh air thinking. I’m a fan.
