A Bedouin IDF soldier was arrested after posting comments on Facebook calling for “Death to Jews” and praising Hitler.
The story was first exposed on Rotter, when someone noticed the Bedouin IDF soldier’s comments on Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day). The story made its way to the base where the soldiers began talking about it, and when the unit’s commanders found out they began an investigation.
The commanders confirmed the posting was real, and the soldier received a military trial and was then sent to a civilian prison.
He has apparently been expelled from the IDF.
Bedouins, Druse and other minorities proudly volunteer and serve in the IDF and the Jewish State, and this was obviously an unusual case.
