Israeli Arab High Jumper Represents Israel- Called a Traitor
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Hanin Nasser is an Israel Arab, she is also Israel's best female high jumper. Nasser will represent Israel in the European Athletic U23 Championships.
And that upsets some Arabs.
Hirak Haifa, a group of Israeli Arab activists, is pressuring Hanin Nasser to back out of the competition. They went public with a statement. This is how it read:
"We condemn her representation of the Zionist entity that uprooted our people and is using her as a fig leaf to cover up the racism and crimes of Israel."
The group also sent a personal note to Nasser asking her not to represent Israel.
What frightens haters more than anything else is normalization. In their narrow world, freedom and democracy are treated as treason.
