ANTI ISRAEL OPINIONS IN CHAPEL HILL

After the meeting of the Israeli delegation yesterday, it seems apparent that jews and gentiles have forgotten the lessons of the hallocaust, They do not see that certain Arabs and Terrorist want to see the destruction of the state of Israel and the Jewish people as a race, These people see Israel as bad guys and are noit supportiv of the state of Isreal, I applaud the Chapel Hill Mayor and the Town Council to host the deligation and discuss what really is going on in the middle east and in Israel.

A picture of a stop sign graffitied to read “STOP PROGRESS” appeared on Twitter last week. The person who Tweeted it captioned it simply: “Chapel Hill politics in a nutshell.”

A few days later, a community leader expressed to one of us their disappointment in how our community is perceived. “People used to look to us as a leader in innovative policies, a place where cool things were happening. That doesn’t happen anymore.”
