Al Jazeera Host Says Israel is Great
By Micah Halpern
Tuesday February 11, 2020
An Al Jazeera host named Faisal al Qassem, host of a program called The Opposite Direction, tweeted that Israel is the most successful project of the past two centuries.
This is what he wrote: “For most Arabs, if they want to curse you, they will describe you as a ‘Zionist,’ even though they know that the most successful project in the current and last century is the Zionist project”.
There was, as expected, blow back on twitter. So Qassem decided to ask his 5.5 million followers what they thought.
About 6,000 responses came in and well over 80% of them agreed that Israel was more modern, more democratic and more technological than Arab countries.
Qassem also hosted the IDF Arabic spokesman on his show via skype. And of course, there were people who condemned him. Qassem’s response was that people just do not understand history.
He said that in Arabic calling someone a Zionist is considered a curse while it should be considered a compliment because Israel has achieved what every Arab state merely promised.
