 An Israeli-Arab Muslim woman spoke out about her love for the Jewish people and Israel on Saturday. 

"You are one of the bravest Muslim women that I know," Hananya Naftali, a minor Israeli YouTube celebrity, said in an interview with Sara Zoabi. "You are not ashamed of your love towards Israel and the Jewish people." 
"I am very proud, first of all, that I'm an Israeli Zionist Arab, and I have tied my destiny with Israel and the Jewish people, a peaceful nation," Zoabi said. "The Jewish nation is an example of peace, an example of love."



When asked why she felt so close to Israelis as opposed to Palestinians, Zoabi answered that she is Israeli. 


"I am an Israeli, I was born here, I live here. Period," Zoabi said. "I don't feel any harassment and no discrimination because I am Arab. The opposite is true. As an Arab Muslim, I get all my rights. 


Zoabi also said she enjoys living under Israeli rule and has no desire to live in a Hamas or Arab state.
