IT WON’T grab any headlines because no one died. There was no violence, no threats, no tension. No “us and them.”

If you’re choosing to read on, then maybe you’re one of the growing band of people who are fed up of always hearing negative news about the Jewish-Arab status quo in Israel. That’s not to say that much of the reporting isn’t justified; sadly, it is. I know, because I spent four years until 2016 working as a regional reporter for a major international news network and followed the day-to-day travails of the peoples of this region. Along with a number of other journalists, I received personal death threats from Hamas for my troubles, so I can hardly be accused of viewing the situation through rose-tinted glasses.
