Meet Min. Ayoub Kara: ‘The most Zionist non-Jew in the world’

Israel finally has a Communications Minister – and he is the 1st Druze MK to have a ministerial portfolio. He is also 1st in other things.

Veteran MK Ayoub Kara was chosen recently for the prestigious post of Minister of Communications by Prime Minister Netanyahu. It is a position the prime minister considers so important that he filled it himself until the Supreme Court ruled that he had to choose someone else – and even then, Netanyahu waited until the last permissible minute to announce his choice.

Arutz Sheva talked to the affable – and personable – Druze Minister about how it is to be the first non-Jewish minister with portfolio to serve in the Knesset of the Jewish State.

There is no question that Kara’s background puts him squarely in the Zionist camp.

Can you tell us “who you are”?

Kara: My family’s roots here and their relationship with the Jewish people go back a long way. The Druze, we believe, go back to Jethro, the father in law of Moses, whose advice was crucial to the great Jewish leader.

My family owned the estate where the famous Sir Oliphant built his home and that is where Naftali Imber wrote the Hatikva, later to become Israel’s national anthem. Now that home is the Druze IDF memorial. No one dreamed then that a grandchild of the Kara family would be a Minister in the Israeli government and that as an MK, he would propose and see to the passing of the flag and national anthem law.

My grandfather was a delegate to Keren Hayesod, the pre-independence Zionist government, from 1930-1948. He helped Jews fleeing Europe during those years, finding shelter for many of them.

Wasn’t it dangerous to be a Zionist in those days? And a Druze Zionist to boot?

Kara: My grandfather paid dearly for standing up for his beliefs. The anti-Zionist Arabs sought to teach him a lesson. One of his sons was murdered in 1939 by anti-Zionist Arabs, shot in broad daylight in Acco. A second was kidnapped in 1947 and never heard from again. He is memorialized in the Druze Yad Lebanim (the beautiful memorial to the Druze IDF soldiers who fell defending Israel, commands a view of the surrounding Galilee vistas, ed.)

My father himself was in the IDF and fought in the Galilee in Israel’s War of Independence, where he was severely wounded.

You, too, served in the IDF, correct?

Kara: Both of my brothers were killed defending the State of Israel which they were raised to love. One was killed in the eastern sector of Lebanon and another was wounded there, later dying of his injuries. I was wounded in Beirut, but survived – recognized by the IDF as a wounded veteran – to continue the family name. My mother told me I had to marry and have 6 children, triple the number of children she lost. And I did just that – with my eldest studying medicine in Ariel University, another at Haifa University, down to the ones still in school. Our family is based in Dalyat el Carmel.

How does the Israeli public greet your appointment?

Kara: We realize that Leftist Israeli media find it difficult to swallow that this historic event happened under Prime Minister Netanyahu’s watch and are constantly looking for ways to try to pour cold water over the friendship between the two of us, both staunch Likud members.

Last week, it was claimed that you met the Western Saharan president without permission from Netanyahu, when what really occurred was that you were introduced to him at the inauguration of the president of Ecuador and spoke in Arabic.

Kara: I regret the constant attempts to tarnish my name as a representative of the State of Israel endeavoring to promote peace with the Arab world. I met the president of Western Sahara at the inauguration of the president of Ecuador, together with the Israeli ambassador to Ecuador who was also present at the event.

My mother tongue is Arabic and that allows me to serve Israel in behind the scenes situations. That should elicit support, not criticism.

Why did you decide to run for the Knesset in the first place?

Kara: I wanted to influence the way the country is going and I felt that I could contribute. My family has identified with the Jewish people from pre-state days. I thought a non-Jew who feels like the most Zionist person on this earth, could help in many ways. And that is what has happened and is still happening.

I have been a Likud member from the start. Ariel Sharon promised me a ministerial post without portfolio, but then went back on his word and appointed someone else who was charged with a criminal offense after several months in office.

Binyamin Netanyahu and I are close friends and have become even closer in the year I have been in the government. And now, I am have been honored to be the first Minister with portfolio who is not a Jew.

What are your core political beliefs?

Kara: Well, I am clearly identified as absolutely right-wing and continue to believe in the Revisionist policy that says that we can achieve peace without giving in and giving up land.

What do you see as your unique contribution?

Kara: My being a non-Jew whose mother tongue is Arabic allowed me to hold preliminary secret meetings with Arab leaders – such as those in Africa. We hope to reach the point where a significant number of Arabic speaking countries do not join our enemies in attacking us and that is beginning to become the new reality. I didn’t talk about the relationship with Saudi Arabia out loud because I would have been laughed at when it was in my plans, but now we realize it as a possibility.

What is the most significant development?

Kara: We are in a political process in this part of the world without any connection to the Palestinian Arabs. Think of the importance of economic and other ties with 30 Sunni states.

How did this become a viable scenario?

Kara: We have Iran to thank – their militancy brought about a Sunni coalition. The war within Islam brings Israel closer to the Saudis, with or without the Palestinian Arab issue.

I am still acting to take advantage of my background and next week there will be a surprise having to do with my meeting someone. And no, I won’t give out the information yet.

You have become the savior of anyone from Israel who finds himself in a dangerous situation in the Arab world. Tell our readers about it.

Kara: My connections prevented Israeli Arabs who almost joined ISIS from going to Syria, their families had turned to me for help. Just last week I was able to save 3 Bedouin who found themselves stuck in Jordan. I found myself doing similar things in Turkey, North Africa, Syria and Iraq, the Gulf Emirates as well.

I also do as much as I can in humanitarian efforts on Israel’s border with Syria. Israel’s image is excellent there, everyone wants to come to the Jewish State for medical treatment – it’s the same in the entire Arab world.

I support and help the organization that brings children from Arab countries who have acute cardiac problems to Israel. There are about 70 children here at any given moment, and they even come from Kurdistan.

In another vein, as a member of the government, I was able to advance the plans for Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Conveyance, also known as the Two Seas Canal. Shimon Peres, whose idea it was, called me to this office and complimented me on my success in advancing the idea in the Arab world, and repeated his appreciation before he died. I stuck to my guns on the issue and that is the secret, along with being above-board and using my mastery of Arabic to build trust.

What do you have to say about the young Druze adults today?

Kara: The younger generation has complaints about the social and welfare situation vis a vis the Druze. However, they enlist in higher proportion than Jewish Israelis and are leading officers in crucial units.

What do you think of the Trump administration?

Kara: I am the only person who visited Trump in his staff headquarters when he was here. I told him that his initiative is the only chance to change anything, because if he can’t achieve peace, no one can. I told Melania and Sara Netanyahu that they should foster a friendship and ignore the paltry criticism that accompanies their every step. I told them to stand behind the two great leaders whom they can encourage to work together to bring more tranquillity to the region.

And what about the Palestinian Arabs, they are not the center stage in the Middle East anymore, but they are very much here.

Kara: I have been pushing forward the plans for an industrial area for the PA Arabs and Israelis. I believe that they will think twice before destroying their source of income by supporting terror if we make it worthwhile. I helped promote the Jericho industrial park in cooperation with the Japanese and the one near Jenin with Turks. We have to fight terror with strength, but we also have to give them a working economy so they have something they don’t want to lose.

Of course, we have to ask about the challenges facing you in your new position.

Kara: The new broadcasting authority will be my biggest challenge, but it is still being adjucated in the courts, so I have breathing space to study it thoroughly. After the case is decided, I will be more forthcoming!

Bezeq has a problem at the moment, but despite what the media have been saying, they are totally private and do not fall under the aegis of the Communications Ministry anymore.

Share your vision for the Ministry with us.

Kara: My vision is to benefit the Israeli public, by lowering prices through privatization. I put HOT into competition with Bezeq and that is the beginning of the process. That’s the general direction I wish to take

We wish you continued success and good luck, Minister Kara, and thank you for your time.

About urielperez

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders.
