O YE #MUSLIMS ! Why are Arab #Christians and #MUSLIMS serving in the #Israeli Defense Forces? #ISIS #TERROR #OBAMA #CAIR

“APARTHEID ISRAEL,” you say? Then Disproving the lie that Israel is a racist, apartheid state, Israeli-Arab Christian and Muslim girls are joining the IDF in increasing numbers, wanting to serve their country in a meaningful way. IDF service is only mandatory for Israeli Jews.

While this story is about Arab Christian and Muslim women joining the IDF, even more Arab Christian and Muslim men are also serving.

United with Israel (h/t Grant B)  Young Muslim girls are joining the fight, on Israel’s side,” journalist David Lazarus wrote in the daily Israel Hayom. “These courageous young women have a unique and important story to tell, and together with a growing number of Christian Arab girls, they are breaking new ground joining ranks with the Israeli army.”

According to Lazarus’ report, these patriotic Arab-Israeli soldiers who are joining the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) include young women from both supportive and non-supportive families. Many had lived happily in Jewish neighborhoods and now wish to serve their country, just as their friends are doing.

One girl, Private ‘A’, a Muslim, is especially challenged. Her parents opposed her choice to serve in the IDF and are refusing to support her in any way, including financially.

“It’s really difficult, even with the help I get from the army,” she conceded. “It is rare for a Muslim girl to join the army, because our families will not accept it. Even so, I would still recommend others to enlist. It is a great, life-changing experience.”

Private ‘G’, a devout Muslim, enjoys family support for her decision. Indeed, her mother said that she, too, would have enlisted if it had been possible when she was younger. “It’s really difficult, even with the help I get from the army,” she conceded. “It is rare for a Muslim girl to join the army, because our families will not accept it. Even so, I would still recommend others to enlist. It is a great, life-changing experience.”

Private ‘G’, a devout Muslim, enjoys family support for her decision. Indeed, her mother said that she, too, would have enlisted if it had been possible when she was younger.

“I have never been ashamed of my [Muslim] faith, not even in the army,” said Private ‘S’. “I wanted to enlist because it is my duty to serve and protect my country. I want to serve in a way that makes a significant contribution.” She faces no difficulties practicing her religion while serving. “They allow me to go home during the Muslim Ramadan fast, once a week to be with my family,” she explained.

Corporal ‘M’, a Christian Arab serving in a sensitive operational unit, overcame social challenges in her home community. After enlisting, she said, “I was walking around the [Arab] neighborhood where I live in uniform. When people saw me they deleted me from their Facebook and erased my number from their telephone. It was very hard, but a few friends still supported me, and I have made a lot of new friends in the army.”

Political activist Anett Haskia, who hails from the northern Israeli city of Akko, identifies as an Arab Muslim Zionist. All three of her children, including her daughter, served in the IDF.

Monaliza Abdo, a Christian Arab-Israeli from Haifa, was featured in 2013 in an IDF blog about women in the Israeli military who had “shattered barriers.” Her job in the army was to help prevent terror attacks, smuggling operations and illegal entry into the country.

“I joined the IDF because I am an inseparable part of Israel,” she stated. “I keep the country safe – not only for the Jews, but for the Arabs too. I would sacrifice my life for the State of Israel and all of its citizens.”

Israel Today  When Private ‘A’, one of the Muslim girls now serving in the IDF decided to enlist, her parents refused to support her. She had to leave home and received support from the army as a lone soldier. 

“I need to support myself,” she says, “and it’s really difficult, even with the help I get from the army. It is rare for a Muslim girl to join the army, because our families will not accept it. Even so, I would still recommend others to enlist. It is a great, life-changing experience.”

Private ‘G’, a devout Muslim, grew up in a Jewish neighborhood. She decided to enlist after she saw all of her neighbors going to serve. “The army is an important part of everyone’s life in my neighborhood,” she explained. “I wanted to serve just like everyone else. I want to give something back to Israel, my country.”

She added that her mother has been very supportive and sends her regular letters for moral support. “Mom said that she would have enlisted also if it had been possible when she was my age.” According to Private ‘G’, recent tensions in Israel caused by young Muslims running through the streets attacking Israeli soldiers with knives does not influence her commitment to serve in the army.  “I am so angry, just like the other soldiers, with these attacks. I am angry that anyone would try to harm these soldiers who are supporting me,” she said.

Private ‘S’ also grew up in a Jewish neighborhood. “My whole life I went to school with Jewish girls, so I wanted to finish high school, and enlist in the army, just like my friends,” she noted.  “I have never been ashamed of my [Muslim] faith, not even in the army. I wanted to enlist because it is my duty to serve and protect my country,” she added. “I want to serve in a way that makes a significant contribution.”

According to Private ‘S’, the army allows her to practice her religious traditions during her army service. “They allow my to go home during the Muslim Ramadan fast, once a week to be with my family,” she explained. “Some may think it is strange, but at home we actually celebrate some of the Jewish holidays like Purim.”

Corporal ‘M’ is a Christian Arab serving in a sensitive operational unit. “One day I saw a group of girl soldiers walking by carrying machine guns. I asked them about their army service, and it sounded really interesting. I didn’t even know where one would go to sign up, so they told me what I needed to do to enlist,” she recounted.

“After I enlisted,” continued the corporal, “I was walking around the [Arab] neighborhood where I live in uniform. When people saw me they deleted me from their Facebook and erased my number from their telephone. It was very hard, but a few friends still supported me, and I have made a lot of new friends in the army,” she shared.

All the young Muslim and Christian soldiers say that other girls are asking them about enlisting too. “I tell them that I feel like I am doing something important for my country,” said Corporal ‘M’. “And when I explain to the Jewish soldiers why I decided to enlist, they all show real respect for the decision that I made.”
