Arabs Enjoy Civil Rights—in ISRAEL

Persecution, discrimination and attacks against religious minorities, especially Christians and Jews, are rampant in the Middle East. Pressure by radical Islamists has become so great that in the last 20 years some two million Christians have been driven out of their Middle East homelands. Invigorated by the violent “Arab Spring,” Islamic vigilantes have burned Christian churches and physically assaulted those suspected as being Christians or Jews.

Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East. Among all Middle Eastern nations, only Israel, guarantees equal civil rights for all its citizens, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender or even sexual preference. Israel is the only country in the Middle East in which the Christian population is growing. Some 1.4 million Israeli Arabs enjoy more rights than citizens of any of the 21 Arab nations in the region.
