Growing Number of Young Arabs and Muslims Support Israel
CBN News Caitlin Burke
An increasing number of Muslims and Arabs are coming together in support of Israel.
According to The Christian Post, a new Facebook page for Arab supporters of the Jewish homeland has attracted about 20,000 followers.
The page posts examples of treating Arabs and Muslims with kindness, and shares surprising stories of Arab support for Israel from across the Middle East.
But some Arabs and Muslims who proclaim themselves as Zionists face death threats for their views.
Muhammad Zoabi began advocating for Israel in 2014 when he was only 17 years old. He posted a video demanding that Hamas release three Israeli teens who had been kidnapped. Death threats forced Zoabi into hiding.
Ahmed Meligy, who identifies himself as a proud Egyptian and Muslim, according to The Christian Post, is another passionate advocate for Israel.
Meligy has endured death threats and police arrest for his activism, which includes blogging for The Jerusalem Post, and supporting democracy in Egypt and warmer ties with Israel.
Experts believe this new trend among young Arabs and Muslims is due to the freer flow of information across social media.
