muslim israeli fighter pilot??? I think not.

The funny thing is that if it was done without the press and without making a big deal about it, I don't think I would have had any issues with it. But stick it in the paper and make it into an issue and I certainly don't want a Muslim defending Jews.

It has worked in the past, but only temporarily. Whenever Muslims swear to defend Jews it has turned into a temporary halt on the persecution, but never has it meant anything more then when Arafat declared his intentions for peace with Israel.

"It's good for the moment to say things like this, but when it gets down to it, we really want them all dead"

If he hadn't turned to the media, though, it would have been a different story. It could have been a nice arab boy who wanted to help his home country Israel and kill other Muslims. It could have been worked out with supervision and care (and maybe a remote control automatic pilot, in case his plane suddenly got lost over tel aviv). Do a security check to make sure that neither he nor his family or friends are in the employ of Iran. And finished. Once it's public, I don't want to hear about it anymore. It becomes a cause for the liberals and self-haters who preach equality when they don't have a clue as to the meaning of that word.


And he went to the media before he got turned down, because he wanted to make this into an international spectacle. The IAF was right in not taking him under those circumstances.

I think this is an still open topic. See original article http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3198013,00.html
At stake here is whether you are for excellence and achievement or for something like inbred mediocrity and smugness.

anonymous,

1) i think you are understating the security issue.

2) One of the main problems I have with the story is that the first thing he did was go to the press. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3193604,00.html

To me that says that everything he does will be public and he is not willing to work with the system. He is going to try to bully the system. The airforce doesn't need that.

The poor boy dreamt of what most of us dreamt or have been dreaming of, serving in the greatest Defense Force in the world, one question he should have asked himself that would have left him seated on the bench like the rest ofus is… do I have any tangible connection to the land?...
