As far as I can tell, it is factually accurate. ‘Arab Idol’ viewers demand removal of Israel I've known for at least three decades that a lot of Arabs have denied that Israel even had a right to exist, and that they have refused to even name Israel, let alone allow it on maps. In many primary Arabic sources, this hostility towards Israel is very noticeable, but is often unacknowledged or even not known by non-Arabic speakers. I noticed a complete lack of this overt hostility in recent UK-based news stories over the past year. Please, tell me I'm not alone in being aware of this for some time. Did you know that this is often the norm in Arabic countries?
