From JPost:
The Jewish Agency is seriously interested in increasing its involvement in the Israeli Arab community and in working with Druze and Bedouins, representatives of the representatives of the board of governors of the Zionist organization were told during the opening of their tri-annual gathering in Tel Aviv on Sunday.the jewish Agency is ser

Agency representatives announced that while as recently as five years ago they did not employ any Druze or Arab workers, today there are seventy five on the payroll and around ten million Shekels are allocated to programs among the non-Jewish minority groups in Israel.

“As a Zionist I believe that this is important for the future of our democracy,” Agency chairman Natan Sharansky announced, addressing board members during a session on the subject.

“It is so important nowadays to strengthen our society,” he asserted, calling the work currently being done only “the beginning.”

Faiz Suad, one of the director’s of the Agency’s Project Ten in Kibbutz Harduf and the surrounding Bedouin villages, said that he initially believed that the Jewish Agency only existed for Israel’s Jews and that when it began operating in his village, sending “young Jewish people all over the world to volunteer in Arab communities” it was “very special.”

Branded as the Agency's “Global Tikkun Olam initiative,” Ten sends Jewish youth to work in vulnerable communities around the world and in Israel.

According to Suad, who is himself a Bedouin, the program not only has helped to strengthen bonds between Jews and Arabs but has even helped to bring many of the participants closer to their own Jewish identity, recalling one young woman from Hungary who only celebrated Hannukah for the first time during her time in a local village.

As they learn to embrace their Jewish identity they also help the local Arab youth learn English and give them skills that will help them advance in life, he said.

Safi, a 35 year old Druze reserve IDF officer said that he believes that the opening up of programs for minority youths are “good for Israeli society because when you act for minorities it gives the message that is a democratic and tolerant and open society, creates a rapprochement and brings people together.”

Many young Druze, he said, are desirous of further integrating into Israeli society, realizing the benefits to be gained for further integration and cooperation.
Just remember, Israeli Jews help Arabs in order to distract the world from how much they can't stand Arabs.

It all makes sense when your worldview is to hate first and fit facts into your hate afterwards.

The Jewish Agency's Project Ten includes programs to help people worldwide.
The Jewish Agency’s Project TEN is a global tikkun olam program that harnesses the energy and passion of young Jewish adults.

Project TEN is a unique service-learning framework. Project TEN brings together young Jews from around the world and Israel to volunteer with vulnerable populations around the world while learning about Jewish values and practices. Together, Israelis and their peers from Jewish communities all over the world spend three months working and learning together in onsite service projects in vulnerable communities.

Project TEN puts into practice the Jewish values that speak directly to social justice, sustainable development, and leadership – while providing critical assistance to communities in Hyderabad, India; Gondar, Ethiopia; Kiryat Shmona, Israel; and Oaxaca, Mexico.
See how they pretend to be liberal by talking about social justice and sustainable development and helping vulnerable communities?

And there is this:
Volunteer projects include teaching English and soft skills to Arab and Jewish children at local schools, working at the Beit Elisha Center for special needs adults, building new permanent, ecologically-conscious building facilities in the forest, working at the organic Gan HaBayit (Home Garden), and volunteering with at-risk youth at the Tuvia boarding school in Harduf.

The rich curriculum includes studying Hebrew and Arabic, sessions on Peoplehood and Tzedek (justice), the Jewish year cycle, and Israeli society, as well as a comprehensive workshop on social entrepreneurship, which will teach you how to map a local need and develop a professional plan, vision and budget to address it. Each cohort will have 1-2 free weekends a month, and will spend several weekends traveling and camping together all over the region, including participation in an Arab-Jewish theatre workshop.

The program is a personal journey, an opportunity to explore your connection with humanity, the Jewish people and the earth, to deepen compassion and empathy, and to truly explore the personal and religious questions underlying volunteer work with people in need as well as our relationships with people often seen as “the other.” This program presents opportunities to develop as a person, as a Jew and as a community leader and to clarify your personal beliefs and commitments.
Amazing how the evil right-wing Zionists are happy to ask volunteers to help Arabs while the liberal anti-Zionists will never, ever, want to expose their bright-eyed volunteers to speak to Jews who are proud Zionists.

It is almost like the people who pretend to be liberal are anything but, and those they accuse of bigotry are also anything but.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
