Mr. Kabiya. A very touching story. Never give up on ideology. Never give up on being who you are.

Thank you, Mr. Kabiya!

You are one courageous man! Most human beings follow the herd and don't do much independent thinking. Your overcoming an environment of blind hatred took guts, heart and brains. It would be wonderful if a movement would arise of people like you who appreciate the freedoms they enjoy as Israeli citizens and value the opportunities that they have, way beyond what's available to them in Arab countries. Maybe you'll be able to start anda lead just such a movement?! Thank you for your service.
