Al-Ahram, Egypt, December 23

They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. This proved to be true at the Netanyahu household where the Israeli prime minister’s son, Yair Netanyahu, has been busy spreading hatred and hostility towards Arabs and Muslims. In a recent Facebook post, the young Netanyahu called to expel Palestinians from their lands, stating that there is room only for one nation in the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. This was just one post in a long series of statements that are rife with abhorrent racism and ignorance. Unfortunately, these statements come at a time when more and more Arab countries chose to normalize their ties with Israel, including Egypt. What a shame on the Arab world. Yair openly declares whatever his father thinks but refuses to say out loud. He represents the true intentions and sentiments of the Israeli leadership, which has no interest in peace or coexistence, but rather in the annihilation of the Palestinian people and their expulsion from their homeland. This is a representation of everything the Israeli state, with all of its terrorism, racism, and bloodshed, stands for. Thankfully, normalization is determined not by government representatives, but by the people on the streets. The Arab public’s commitment to Palestine will never be forgotten or ignored. We will therefore never accept the normalization of ties with the Israeli enemy. –Muhammad Hussein
