Egyptian Student Impresses with Tel Aviv University Speech

While many who surround Israel are its enemies, vowing destruction for the Jewish state, it is always warming to see Israel's friends. One of these, an Egyptian student at Tel Aviv University, praised Israel in the above speech:
“On my very first day here at the university, I saw men in kippahs, women in headscarfs and hijabs. I saw soldiers walking peacefully among crowds of lively students. I learned there were people of every kind in the university, and the university had a place for all of them — Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze, Bedouins and even international students,” Hassanein said. “We must always question our assumptions. Being here in Israel has taught me that life is full of paradoxes and complexities — that nothing is straightforward, and that things are often not as they are made to seem.”
