  • Bedouin IDF Veteran Counters Anti-Israel Activists – Abigail Klein Leichman
    Mohammad Ka’abiya, 26, a Bedouin from the Galilee, served in an Israel Air Force rescue squadron and is today an international Israel advocate. Last March at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, he heard a South African student claiming that Arabs have no rights in Israel. “I came up to him and said, ‘My name is Mohammad and I served in the Israel Air Force….You must know that Israeli Arabs have the freedom to live, work, worship and travel, more than many of the Jewish minorities in Arab countries.'”
    “One time a Muslim student said to me, ‘How can you fight against your brothers in Gaza?’ and I told her…’If they’re shooting at me or digging tunnels to kill me and other Israelis, they’re not my brothers.'”
    “In my holy book, the Koran, it is written that this land is for the Jewish people and that I have to respect Jews and Christians. How can you use the Koran to fight against the Jewish people?”  (Jerusalem Post)
