    Having a good time in an Arabic restaurant in Jaffa . Money does not smell!


    I grew up in Jaffa Israel the oldest city in the world, used by king Solomon as a harbor . The Arabs I know and spoke to were nice human beings, intelligent, respectful and polite. I am wondering where from hate arises today between Arabs and Jews ? As a journalist I interviewed Palestinians from Gaza who came to work in Jaffa for little money. There were no jobs in Gaza because Arafat used donations money for terror, just like Hamas , the new version of the PLO . They worked in small fish factories for little money but they were happy they made a living. They told me they were sleeping at night in those factories, and on their spare time they went to the movies in tel aviv. Once a week of course they would return home to their families. They complained about police brutality, the Israeli police accused them of smoking hashish... Police is the same all over the world! One of the workers came to my house. There was no fear... Friday night I watched Arabic movies with Hebrew translation, the dramas were with tears of course, the comedies were good. Under my balcony an Arab had a booth selling vegetables etc. he needed light at night to able to sell and we let him use an extension cord to our outlets to have light at we provide them light by sending flares o Sent from AOL Mobile Mail Esther shaked
