Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      If we all join together under one umbrella, that being human rights and equality for all – palestinians, arab israelis, mizrahim, ethiopians, women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans, does that diminish the specific issues of each group, or would strength in numbers ultimately achieve the goal of equality and freedom? Unity = strength.

        Yes, everyone needs to join together.
        Leftists dedicated to LGTBQ Rights, feminism and minorities TOGETHER with Islam dedicated to the same thing.

        How’s that strategy working in Europe?
        Why is the French Army now patrolling the streets of Paris?
        Why is Sweden now starting to draft its young men for Army service?

            Yes, Carmen everything is going fine and dandy in Europe now.
            No month-long riots in the Streets of Paris.
            No bombings and multiple gang rapes in Germany
            No nightly arson, knifing attacks and stolen police cars in Sweden.

            We won’t mention the religion of 99% of the criminals and plug our ears and sing to ourselves LALALA…LALALA… and stick our SJW paradigm.

            The French army is on the Paris Streets for the 1st time since WW2. Sweden is facing multiple rapes,
