It used to be that Israeli Arabs were more loyal to Israel and didn’t consider themselves to be “Palestinian.” Over the last couple of decades, that has changed, and most are loyal to the Palestinian cause, despite refusing to let go of Israeli passports and citizenship. Apparently, though, there are still some refreshing exceptions, almost all of them Christian, and I assume, therefore, that the hotel manager in this story was a Christian Arab (his native city, Nazareth, however, has become overgrown with Muslims). Kudos to him for the courage and guts he displayed in the face of the modern day efforts at Hitlerian Judenrein.
On Wednesday the Iranian embassy in Prague organized an event at a well-known hotel in the Czech capital. Prior to the event, a senior embassy official was shocked to see an Israeli flag flying high at the head of a line of flags situated near the entrance to the hotel.
The diplomat spoke to the hotel manager and demanded that the Israeli flag be taken down, but the manager, and Arab-Israeli from Nazareth, rejected the request.
“The (Israeli) flag will remain at the front of the hotel always,” the manager told the Iranian official. “If you don’t like it, you are welcome to hold the event at another hotel.”
The angry Iranian diplomat had no choice but to accept the hotel’s position, and the event was held as scheduled. . . .
This was not the first time the presence of the Israeli flag resulted in a diplomatic incident. A few years ago former Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki visited Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. Upon his arrival at the local Holiday Inn, Mottaki noticed an Israeli flag flying proudly near the entrance. An infuriated Mottaki asked that the flag be removed, but his request was denied.
The sad and scary thing is that there are plenty of hotels that will all too willingly comply with these demands, and that there are more and more of them, as it becomes more and more in vogue to openly display the Jew-hatred that is Israel-hatred.
I do love, though, that these Iranians were forced to enter the hotel under the flying Israeli flag. And I’m glad the hotel manager’s name wasn’t published, as he is probably now targeted for death.
