Opinion And the winner of my man of the year award is... | Israel today


Mansor Abbas sows anxiety both in Balad, which seeks to undermine the existence of the state, and in Cohenism, that any such cooperation - in the spirit of Jabotinsky's teaching - is for the extremist Jews a nightmare

The American magazine "Time" founded the journalistic venture to choose the person of the year every December 31.

The editor of this world, Uri Avneri, has a similar project every Rosh Chodesh Tishrei.

I followed in his footsteps, and for many years now I have chosen the "man of the year" in my articles.

The move is complex.

Israel issues dramatic events in a hurry, and therefore many candidates accumulate, and there is a struggle during the sorting.

In 2014 I couldn't decide between myself.

One candidate was a Givat officer, Eitan Pond.

In Operation Tzuk Eitan, he bravely entered a tunnel in an attempt to save his friend Hadar Goldin, who was kidnapped and murdered by Hamas, and was decorated with the Bezalesh. That same year, Judge David Rosen overruled the defendants in the "Holyland" corruption case, and sent Ehud Olmert to prison for accepting bribes. I chose Pond and Baron together.

I was close to that this year as well.

Hadas Klein, who testifies with integrity and without tricks or cleverness in Benjamin Netanyahu's trial, is an example of the Israeli's proper attitude towards the rule of law.

Defense attorney Amit Hadad as expected attacked her testimony, but refrained from portraying her as a woman of intrigue or as a liar, and he knew why: because no one would believe him, in and out of court.

Klein deserves the Israel Award, or at least the badge of knighthood for the quality of government in the organization of Dr. Eliad Sharga. She agrees with the opinion of the well-known attorney Amnon Goldenberg, who heard from his client how he was going to hide the facts in his testimony in court and twist the judges with denial, until he could not restrain himself and warned him Sarcastically: "Telling the truth is also an option."

Nevertheless, the winner of the title of "Man of the Year" is the leader of Raam, Mansur Abbas. The Islamic MK deals with his religion.

It is said that he is a kind of public messenger in his activities in the mosque.

In the atmosphere that prevails between Jews and Arabs in Israel, and in view of the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria and Gaza, Abbas acted courageously when he reached out to the current government.

Even if there is truth in Netanyahu's claim that he received an abundant budget - still a significant part of it goes to the Arab public, and the surplus is trivial compared to the strategic change that the leader of Ra'am established in the political system.

He did so by suggesting to his public to abandon the path of sour hostility and the dream of erasing Israel from the map, and instead integrate into it, while recognizing that it is a Jewish state, and claim rights for the Arab sector considering that it is democratic.

This recognition, and the step he took as an independent Islamic faction and not as an excess of an Arab candidate on a Jewish list, are a challenging revolutionary change, which set the extremists on both sides of the fence against him.

Abbas sows and sows anxiety both in Balad, which strives to undermine the existence of the state, and in Kahnism, that any such cooperation - by the way, in the spirit of Zeev Jabotinsky's dream - is for the extremist Jews a nightmare. If there is a continuation of Abbas's actions, the secret dream of elimination will be eroded the Jews or the expulsion of the Arabs.

It is possible that Abbas's experiment will fail, and we have seen such a possibility in the riots in the cities involved.

But what has been done can no longer be undone.

The precedent exists.

An Arab-Islamic factor was found who gave up the plot in favor of Jewish-Arab cooperation.

Which is why - he is the man of the year.
