Arab Cross-Dresser Nearly Beaten to Death in PA

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

An Israeli Arab man dressed in women’s clothing was attacked and beaten during a day outing to the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Shechem.

Arutz Sheva reported that eyewitnesses said a group of women demanded he leave the city, but he continued walking toward’s the town center. A few minutes later, hundreds of local residents surrounded the cross-dressed man shouting curses and epithets and threatening to kill him. At one point, a group of youths approached him and started hitting him, saying that they had to “destroy his kind before they start multiplying.”

The website said that by the time Palestinian Authority police arrived, the man was surrounded the visitor and the situation had nearly reached riot proportions. Locals called the man an affront to the honor and dignity of Arab men.

Eventually, the man was taken to a police station, and from there hurtled away to a road outside the city – where he was dropped off, along with orders to stay out of Shechem.

Shechem city officials told the website,“residents of Shechem are not used to this kind of behavior, which is shameful. This individual does not represent Palestinian society, but himself. He was very inconsiderate of the feelings of local residents.”

IDF Announces Draft Notices to Christian Israelis

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

The IDF has announced it will begin to send voluntary draft notices to all Christian Israelis, offering them the chance to enlist in Israel’s army.

The move comes as part of the universal draft law that has required hareidi religious Jews to enter the military as well.

The draft will be voluntary for Christians and will include the option of serving either in the IDF or in civilian (national) service. National Service usually entails work in hospitals, schools, youth movements and similar venues.

A number of Christian groups and veterans have organized an initiative to increase the number of Israeli Christians who enlist in the nation’s armed forces.

It has caused a major controversy among Israeli Arabs, who see the effort as an attempt to divide and weaken the community, despite an increase in those who wish to serve.

Approximately 500 Israeli Christians are currently enlisted in National Service, and 100 are serving in the IDF.

Galilee Arab Indicted for Aiding Hezbollah

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Another Arab with Israeli citizenship has been exposed as a traitor. Zahar Ben Omar Yusfin, of the Arab city Shfaram, located immediately east of Haifa, allegedly handed over to a Hezbollah agent intelligence information of an IDF base.

He was charged with “making contact with an enemy agent, assisting a banned organization, and passing on information that stands to benefit the enemy” when he met with the Hezbollah member while on a pilgrimage to Mecca six years ago.

The indictment states that Yusfin returned to Israel after his pilgrimage and helped find other Arabs vesting Mecca and who might be recruits for Hezbollah. Yusfin was familiar with pilgrimage trips because he and his brother helped organize them since 2000.

During the Second Lebanon War, Yusfin allegedly informed Hezbollah about sites of impact of Hezbollah missiles. He denied the charges.
