Arab MK: Return or Burn Draft Notices


Member of Knesset Basel Ghattas of the Arab Balad (National Democratic Assembly) party attacked, Tuesday, the announcement by the Israel Defense Forces that they were sending voluntary draft notices to Christian Arabs, calling it an attempt to divide the country's Arab population. 

Ghattas said, "In a year they will see that the Christians are enlisting and apply compulsory service on all of us." He added, "Of course we're opposed. I have called on all the young Arabs who receive the draft notices to return them by mail or burn them in protest demonstrations."
