Yeah,... it must remind you a lot of the Nazis raising SS divisions in the Ukraine to help guard the death camps.

The Arabs in Israel are Israeli citizens, you can't compare that with Nazis enlisting Ukrainians. It's more like Australians enlisting Aboriginals, which they did since 1901.

fascinating - and conversely fascinating are those Jews who frequent Iran to denounce the State of Israel. I'm not taking sides, just reporting an equally amazing anomoly of loyalties.
