Arab Israeli Hotel Mgr Tells Iranian Diplomat Where To Go Re Israeli Flag

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

I wonder if this Iranian guy is cursing under his breath: “ALLAH DAMN IT!

It is my opinion that there are MANY MORE Arabs like this man; even Muslims. The problem is that the Czech Republic is unique in its support for Israel. (It’s a good history if we ignore the period of Soviet rule.) The Czech Republic equates their sad history of abandonment by the world’s democratic powers with Israel’s current struggle. As a result, pro-Israel rhetoric is protected; even encouraged in the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic’s diplomats have on several occasions stood up to the EU’s cowardly “political correctness”. I’m sure they don’t have a perfect record of this, but I know for certain they’ve made the effort for Israel and took their lumps for it.

In this kind of country, Arab and Muslim Zionists can “come out of the closet” because they know they’ll be protected from the certain intimidation that will follow. We all know Arabs and Muslims who privately tell us they support the Jewish State’s existence but will not write a letter to the editor of the local newspaper to say so. That is because here in America and even in Israel, these Zionist Arabs and Muslims are not adequately protected from intimidation.

Quietly and privately, they know darn well what’s going on, but dare not stand up and be counted. In the name of “free speech” and “political correctness” we have allowed thugs to dominate the voice of Arabs and Muslims in America.

If America would put Muslim terrorist front groups (CAIR, MSA, etc.) in their place and get serious in our support for Israel (for example, protecting Jewish and Zionist students on campus), I think we’d see a lot more pro-Israel Arabs and Muslims out there. We’d see them because they would enjoy the same comfort and protection that hotel manager has in the Czech Republic.

I have a feeling, you might not agree with me on this. I just thought I’d throw it out there and let the chips fall where they may.

    One of my facebook friends is Czech, and a great guy. The Czechs are way cool. Unlike the New Zealanders.

The sad thing is Jewish leftists in Israel would have complied with the Iranian demand.

There are Israeli Arabs who are loyal to their country and take pride in its flag.

Jewish Israelis could stand to learn from them about standing up to Israel’s enemies.

    Allow me to try and rescue you from your comment.

    There are only two circumstances where a senior Iranian diplomat would visit a hotel in Israel:

    1. A catastrophe resulting in the destruction of Israel as a Jewish State.

    2. A miraculous victory of good over evil in Iran.

    If circumstance number one happens, there won’t likely be any leftist Jews in Israel to greet the Iranians. If circumstance number two happens, removing the Israeli flag would defeat the purpose of the visit.

    I think I know what you were trying to say. A Jewish Israeli leftist managing a hotel in PRAGUE might have complied with the Iranian demand. However, you said: “Jewish leftists IN ISRAEL {emphasis mine} would have complied with the Iranian demand.”

    I knew something didn’t seem right with what you wrote. When I realized what it was, I couldn’t help but laugh. It’s a minor gaff, but allow me to demonstrate something more disturbing (and definitely not of your making).

    Sometimes, ya gotta step back from the trees and see the forest. For example, in a brief blip in a lengthy article, here’s what AP said about Elizabeth Taylor and Israel:

    “Her philanthropic interests included assistance for the Israeli War Victims Fund, the Variety Clubs International and the American Foundation for AIDS Research.”

    The semantics are quite deliberate and might slip past us at first glance. I hope you don’t have to read this example too many times to recognize the nefarious intent to mis-represent Elizabeth Taylor.

    At first I thought: “How nice! Someone in the media finally acknowledged Elizabeth Taylor’s support of Israel.” Then I read it again. This time, I wasn’t laughing.

    Nowhere did that article say Taylor was a Zionist or supported Israel. If I didn’t know different, the sentence could be easily interpreted as saying that she supported Arab victims of “Israeli War”.

    Here’s a link to the AP article:

    Semantics, NormanF! Semantics!

    In the Czech Republic, citizens recognize from their own history, the manner in which Israel is being betrayed. My thesis is that this public consensus gave that Arab hotel manager in Prague, the courage to stand up to the Iranians. If our news media weren’t making Israel-haters feel comfortable here in the United States, I think that some of our Arab and Muslim neighbors might have the same courage to stand up and be counted for Israel.

Thats a very good Christian in my opinion, and I encourage every Arab Christian to boycott muslims whenever and wherever possible. Its a stink religion and nothing but blood do they covet. One day, the world will be free of them.

Guarantee you that plenty of American hotels would have capitulated. They’ll do anything for Arab business. Remember Thanksgiving of this year, when the Waldorf Astoria booted dozens and dozens of Americans who had reserved — and paid in advance — for their rooms because the King of Saudi Arabia showed up with his posse and took over about three floors?

“but the manager, an Arab-Israeli from Nazareth

Oh gee, I wonder why he isn’t living in Nazareth anymore. Anyone want to take a guess? Not that you’ll see that in the New York Times or the Guardian. (Or if you do, they will blame it on “the occupation.”)

He was quite brave to do what he did. The Iranian diplomat was little more than a child in a man’s body, as demonstrated by his behavior.

Perhaps a more appropriate response to the request – certainly more hospitable – would have been to provide this guest with his own Israeli flag, photographing its reception as a memento.

Solomon2 on March 28, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    How about giving him two flags? In case he loses one.

    Tanstaafl on March 29, 2011 at 10:32 am

After holding their event under an Israeli flag, I am sure the diplomatic boneheads survived to be idiots another day.

P. Aaron on March 30, 2011 at 7:32 am

Some of these morons have alot of balls. It is about time someone told them to shove it where the sun don’t shine in mecca
