In the aftermath of the recent terror attack on the Temple Mount in mid-July, in which Arab citizens of Israel murdered two Israeli Border Police officers, Jewish activist Tzvi Sucot filmed a message to Israeli Arabs in Arabic - and directly faced off against Arab bystanders in the process.
Sucot noted how Israeli Arab leaders did not condemn the attack in a blatant show of ungratefulness. He pointed out how the Arabs rioted over simple security checks being placed at the Temple Mount, while they have no problem entering National Insurance buildings through metal detectors to receive money from the state.
The indomitable activist warned his Arab onlookers: "We're not suckers, and when we'll have to fight you'll miss this era."
Passersby were heard shouting "Allahu akbar" in the background and some tried to talk back to Sucot, but he completed his message unperturbed.
Sucot, a resident of Samaria, is an activist with Boomerang - Fighting for Israel, an NGO seeking to "spearhead Israel’s ‘public diplomacy’ warfare on social media."
In the end, Israel's government capitulated to the riots and terror attacks and removed the security measures from the Temple Mount. The state would perhaps do well to learn from Sucot's braveness in confronting Israeli Arabs in their own language and warning them that benefits come with obligations.
