Another example of the true feelings Israel harbors for its Arab neighbors, as both Jews and Arabs find themselves trapped in war-torn Ukraine with the Jewish state their only hope of escape.

Israel has been working hard to get the thousands of Israeli citizens currently in Ukraine out of the country. Since many waited too long and are now unable to fly out of Ukraine, they must make a long and perilous journey westward overland to neighboring countries.

To aid in this effort, the Israel Foreign Ministry and other groups are organizing buses to transport the Israelis to the border crossings.

An Arab journalist for Israel’s left-leaning daily newspaper Ha’aretz reports that a Lebanese citizen found himself trapped with no hope of aid from his own government. But he was traveling with a group of Israeli Arabs, and when they inquired if he could join an Israeli bus, the response from Israeli officials? Absolutely!

This is the true face of Israel.
