Times of Israel interviews the Arab couple who helped the survivors of the terrorist attack that murdered Rabbi Miki Mark:
In the moments after the Friday drive-by shooting attack that killed Rabbi Miki Mark outside the West Bank city of Hebron, a local Palestinian couple helped the surviving members of his family escape the overturned vehicle and administered first aid until first responders arrived at the scene.

“At first I thought it was an accident. I opened the door, which was difficult because the car was overturned,” the Palestinian man, a resident of Hebron, told Channel 2. “The girl was inside the car screaming, ‘They’re killing us,’ so I just kept telling her not to be afraid and that everything would be fine.”

After he managed to pry one of the doors open, the man, who wasn’t named in the report, said he pulled 14-year-old Tehila from the wrecked car.

He said his wife, who is a medical doctor, worked to stanch the bleeding from the teen’s abdominal wound while he called an ambulance to the scene.

“She was telling them in English, ‘Do not be afraid, we are here to help you,'” he recalled.

The man said he then pulled 15-year-old Pedaya out of the car, and attempted to calm him.

“I took the boy and I hugged him, I gave him some water and applied iodine, and just kept telling him that everything was going to be fine,” he said. “It doesn’t matter to me if it was an accident or a terror attack, it’s irrelevant. These are people, children, who need help, and if I can help, I will help them.

“The girl told me, ‘God sent an Arab to help us,'” he added.
This Arab couple is truly heroic.

Here's another set of Arabs who were in the news recently:
Families of Palestinian teenage terrorists who are imprisoned in Israel, were invited on Saturday to a special dinner in East Jerusalem during which the terrorists’ names were glorified.

Each family was given a commemorative plaque and a drinking mug featuring an image of its jailed relative. The event was attended by former Jerusalem Mufti Sheikh Ekrima Sa'id Sabri, who is known for his extremist views.

One of the families who participated in the dinner was that of Muawiya Alqam, a 14-year-old who was jailed for perpetrating a stabbing attack on the Jerusalem light rail in November 2015 with his 11-year-old cousin, Ali.

Ali, whose age precluded him from being prosecuted under criminal law, is spending a year in an institution headed by the Ministry of Welfare from which he is given furlough once every fortnight. He too participated in the Saturday event.
The first set of Arabs, the true heroes, do not allow their names to be publicized*. They don't want their neighbors and friends to know that they saved the lives of Jews.

The families of the second set of Arabs, terrorists who are treated as heroes, are very proud of their sons and are thrilled to announce the names and publish the photos of these murderers and would-be murderers to the world.

Anyone who self-righteously tries to describe the Israelis and Palestinian Arabs as morally equal - those who say that both sides have suffered, both sides are at fault, both sides are in a "cycle of violence" - are very, very wrong. And the proof is right here.

Terrorists like those who murdered the Marks are heroes to the Palestinians, as we have seen countless times.

The actual Arab heroes - the people who saved the lives of their enemies - are not heroes at all to their people, and in fact their heroism is something not to be spoken about in public. Their names and faces are not known. The only articles about them are from Israeli media, not from Palestinian media.

There is no moral equivalence between the two sides. For Palestinians,  terrorists are heroes and real heroes are an embarrassment.

Israelis and Palestinians are moral opposites.

(h/t Yehudah Posnick)

UPDATE: The names of the Arab heroes have been revealed by Israeli TV. The husband is Islam Albid and a doctor who stopped to help is Dr. Ali Abu Sharah. There is still no Arabic coverage of the story.
