Different article, same story. Desitegration of Israel Arab citizens….( “Desitegration von Israels arabischen Bürgern”). On-line header is different from printed version.
I love reading NZZ. NZZ professional journalists are not writing that Israel discriminates Israeli Arabs. They write
- They FEEL themselves discriminated (‘Sie fühlen sich als Bürger zweiter Klasse‘(1),‘er fühle sich diskriminiert‘(2), ein Ende der Diskriminierung und Frieden‘(3)).
Can you feel the difference?
NZZ writes about city Umm al-Fahm and what people feel there. That roads are below Israels standards, unemployment is doubled etc.
I have googled wikipedia and here is the follow:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umm_Al-Fahm
- Umm al-Fahm is a city in the Haifa District of Israel with a population of 43,300, situated on the Umm al-Fahm mountain ridge
- In the late 19th century, Umm al-Fahm was described as having around 500 inhabitants, of which some 80 people were Christians.
- In 1948, there were 4,500 inhabitants, mostly farmers, in the Umm al-Fahm area.
- On 20 May 1949, the city’s leader signed an oath of alliegiance to the State of Israel. Following its absorption into Israel, the town’s population grew rapidly.
- According to CBS, there are a total of 17 schools and 9,106 students in the city: 15 elementary, 4 junior high-schools , 7 high schools. In 2001, 50.4% of 12th grade students received a Bagrut matriculation certificate.
- The city has several football clubs; . Maccabi Umm al-Fahm currently play in Liga Leumit, the second tier of Israeli football, Hapoel Umm al-Fahm play in Liga Artzit (the third tier). Ironi Sayid Umm al-Fahm play in Liga Alef (the fourth tier), and Beitar Umm al-Fahm play in Liga Gimel (the sixth tier).
- The Umm al-Fahm Art Gallery was established in 1996 as a venue for contemporary art exhibitions and a home for original Arab and Palestinian art.
I suppose State of Israel provides education, medicine, security to Umm al-Fahm. Does NZZ present this to readers in Switzerland? They, we, you, his and him are sometimes feeling – not at all.
He, she, it feels NZZ does not usually does not even really have an objective sort of view on a place located somewhere near North Bank.
