Arabs and Bedouins join Israel's war on Hamas despite accusations of 'treachery'

As the first from his Muslim village to volunteer for the Israeli army, life was not easy for Fadel Faour, who now finds himself on the front line of the Gaza war.

After he volunteered, his dreams of becoming a religious leader, or ‘‘sheikh’’, were dashed, with his family and friends branding him a traitor for serving in what they see as an occupying force.

Since signing up, he knew going to war was always a possibility, but on Oct 7, he came face to face with the biggest conflict seen in the country in decades as he took on Hamas terrorists.

Faour is one of a growing number of Israel’s Arab and Bedouin minorities volunteering with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a pathway to escaping poverty and crime in the Arab towns and villages they live in.


Very interesting article about Arabs and Bedouins serving in the IDF fighting against Hamas.

This is probably going to start some shit,

but, I am damned proud to be an American with Pres. Joe Biden at the helm of our Govt. and standing up for Western values with regards to the Ukrainian and Israeli wars.

Go Joe and I hope that all Democrats remember this in 2024 and defeat fascism via Benedict Donald.

On second thought,

I'm really beginning to dislike DU4, My Stuff keeps going off highlighting my subscriptions, even though I haven't subscribed to any new subscriptionsl

Admins, please fix this problem.

There is no doubt in my mind that WWIII is on the horizon,

and this time it will end civilization as we know it.
Hopefully, with Pres. Biden at the helm, we can avoid it, but if it comes down to that, then I trust him.
