This is How Muslims Really Live in Israel

Our favorite YouTuber, Hananya Naftali, took us on an eye-opening weekend visit to a Muslim village in Israel.

Much of the mainstream media portrays life for Muslims in Israel as oppressive. Some go so far as to suggest that Muslims cannot even worship freely in the Jewish state.

Of course, media is a business, and reports that evoke outrage bring a lot more viewership, and therefore sell a lot more ads, than reporting the boring reality.

Nevertheless, the truth is that Muslims enjoy the exact same freedoms of religion, speech, movement and everything else as their Jewish countrymen. In fact, in many towns, one can find Muslims and Jews exercising those same freedoms side-by-side without any hint of conflict between them.
