Incitement against Saudi Arabia
Jihad Watch : “War is deceit” (Bukhari 4.52.268). Among “Palestinians” it’s a veritable art form. “Tlaib’s Palestinian village is thriving, but she is in denial,” by Akiva Bigman, Israel Hayom, August 21, 2019:
What is it really like to live in the Palestinian village
Beit-Ur al-Fauqa, where Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s grandmother and other
family members live? Are conditions there as bad as she has claimed? If you look at the Facebook profiles of people who actually live
there, you will discover that things are actually not bad at all.
Achiam Tlaib, for example, drives a brand new BMW. On his Facebook
account, you can see that his family lives in a very comfortable
three-story building. Raja Tlaib shared on his Facebook account pictures of himself posing
next to his new Mercedes, wearing an expensive suit. He also has
pictures showing him working out in a gym that has the latest equipment.
Mawaid Tlaib uploaded pictures of his vacations in Italy and other places, and Anas Tlaib has a very expensive Mercedes. Samach Tlaib drives a BMW and Niaf Tlaib drives a Corvette
convertible and uploaded pictures posing next to his new home under
construction, also with three stories. Many of them also have pictures showing them visiting places inside
the Green Line (pre-1967 Israel): Jaffa, Acre, Tel Aviv and so on. So
perhaps all those checkpoints that supposedly make Palestinian life so
miserable are just a myth?
In fact, even the World Bank said in 2014 that the village is one of
the richest in the region. The poverty rate in the village stood at 7.4 %
in 2014, compared to the overall rate of 21% in the Palestinian
Authority. Only a handful of villages have a lower poverty rate in the PA and
employment in the village is also among the lowest in the PA. But
perhaps the most important statistic is this: The rate of social
mobility in Beit-Ur al-Fauqa is among the highest in the PA.
According to a 2017 PA report on the quality of life of Palestinians, the village has 230 households. The report says that 215 structures are considered private residences
and four of them are actually single-family homes, attesting to their
More than 115 of the households are in apartments that have 5 bedrooms or more, and 65 of the households have four bedrooms….
