Syrian Refugee Creates Website to Thank Israelis

Israelis often reach out and help the Syrian refugees - and Aboud Dandachi, a Sunni Muslim and displaced Syrian, honored this partnership by creating a website thanking Israel for all of their aid. In order to reverse the often negative views towards Israel, Dandachi posts stories of all the Jews and Israelis who support the Syrian refugees, showing there is no need for conflict.

"Israel is doing exactly what it must do," he says. "It is not taking part in the war, but is helping wounded Syrians who need help. And it's not only the government. Israelis are helping Syrian refugees in Jordan, in Greece, Serbia, North America. No one would have blamed the Jews and the Israelis if they had said it was not their problem...

Dandachi recalls his education growing up. "I grew up with statements like 'these people are your enemies. The Jews are evil'. And then I saw that the Jews are the most humane and generous people of this era. When I see that Hezbollah and the Iranians are coming to kill me and I'm forced from my home by Syrians, and then I hear that Israelis and Jews are helping Syrians, my view of the world changes."

Therefore, he says, "someday, when this war is over, and there is no doubt that it will be over sometime, I do not want the Syrians to be involved in unnecessary conflicts. There no reason for us to be in a conflict with Israelis. What kind of disagreements are there between the two sides?
