Kuwaiti Columnist: Israel Has Outdone Us in Everything – We Must Learn from It
Columnist Ahmad Al-Sarraf wrote in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Qabas on Feb. 1: “Israel has outdone us in all fields – military, scientific, and cultural – but despite this we have refused to consider the reason for its obvious superiority to us, and have never stopped calling it ‘the monstrous entity’….Since its founding, Israel has been committed to democracy, while we refuse to even speak of it, let alone adopt it….Israel has given its minorities rights that most citizens in most Arab countries do not even dream of. Furthermore, the freedom of worship there exceeds that in any Arab or Islamic country.”
“Israel has managed to unite people emigrating to it from 50 countries, and to forge a single people from them, while we have not managed to create a [joint] army out of the [Arab] people….Israel has known law and order since its first day, while we still try to comprehend the meaning of both these words….Israel has developed its technologies and developed its agriculture, industry, and military, becoming an advanced and respected country, while we currently occupy the bottom slot in every field.”  (MEMRI)
