""Israel is a place like no other on this earth..come and see for yourself" - Israeli Arabs share love for Israel
"Azerbaijan and Israel have found a friendship in their commonality of shared open societies. Yet one is Muslim and one is Jewish, so how can this be? Watching these two countries coexist and deal with one another, it is actually quite easy to understand. Each year their trade and joint scientific, military, agricultural, and other business projects increase, and each nation is welcome and inviting to one another. Azerbaijan and Israel are regularly visited by each other’s high-level officials, and all are welcomed with deserved pomp and circumstance."http://www.jns.org/latest-articles/2014/4/2/azerbaijan-a-modern-muslim-nation-openly-defies-stereotypes-befriends-israel#.U0Gf63nYZZ7

"My main difference with the majority of Muslims is the belief that a Jewish homeland is an important progress for all of us, especially one in their ancestral land of Israel"
"In her article, Tezyaparin argues that anti-Jewish narratives contradict Qur’anic teachings and that Muslims are obliged to take a stronger position against anti-Jewish statements. “Jews are the descendants of Prophets like Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon (peace be upon them all),” she writes. “A Muslim cannot be silent in the face of those who try to annihilate the descendants of Prophets.''"
Aboud Dandachi: "Personally, Israel’s kindness to Syrian refugees has demonstrated to me that Syrians and Israelis need not be adversaries in the future, that there is space and possibility for an accommodation on even the most seemingly intractable of issues. There is goodwill and humanity on the Israeli side, despite everything I have been taught to believe during my life.”
Letter from Aboud Dandachi to UCLA Student's Union for their BDS resolution vote:
"You are endorsing bullying and intimidation of not only companies that have broken no laws, but humans living in Israel"
Al Quds and other Arab media outlets published this amazing article this weekend:
"We hesitated coming to Israel, because we were taught to hate it. We were taught this is a brutal enemy state, but we learned that reality is different. People here have a conscience. Our enemy is in Syria, not in Israel."
"Meet First Sgt. Monaliza Abdo. She's Christian, Arab, Israeli and a brave defender of Jews and minorities alike. Last month, she finished her #IDF service after three years of dedication to #Israel." - Friends of IDF, Jan 8, 2013
