Judge for yourself: Mehereta Baruch, LaVon Mercer, Ismail Khaldi, and Azzam Azzam are Israeli personalities.
Mehereta Baruch is a Zionist and a Jew. Meherata came to Israel with her family from Ethiopia, traveling on foot to Sudan to get to Israel and suffering many hardships on the way.
She has found a new home in Israel.
She says, "Israel was always the place of our dreams. When we finally arrived it really felt like the paradise I was promised."

Ismail Khaldi is Israel's Consul in San Francisco. Ismail is a Bedouin Arab. He says:
Two years ago, a few proud Bedouin Israeli citizens like asked: what is our position and status in the State of Israel in the midst of its current situation? After all, Bedouin are part of Israel's success story. During current times, when Israel is being attacked and accused of being a racist state, an 'aggressor and an oppressor', we decided that the smallest and probably most effective thing we could do is to spread our story as part of Israeli society.
|Azzam Azzam - Israeli Druze - I am fortunate and proud to have been born in Israel."|
