JERUSALEM (AP) -- An Iranian blogger who wrote for an Israeli news website and who left her country for exile after threats of imprisonment arrived in Israel on Thursday, saying she feels "safe now" after finally reaching the Jewish state.

Neda Amin spoke shortly after arrival in Israel at a joint press conference with David Horovitz, the founding editor of the Times Of Israel where her work has appeared and who helped bring her to the country.

Amin, 32, had been living in Turkey since 2014. She says she left Iran after being threatened with prison for writing material critical of the government in Tehran.

Turkish authorities recently told her she would be deported back to Iran and that she was in "such danger," Amin added.

Just goes to show that when someone wants to escape the terror that Islam brings in that region, they just need to make their way to Israel.
