Strange But True

The Jerusalem Post reports on a former-PLO-Arab-turned-Jew, who has enlisted in the IDF:

A Palestinian youth who converted to Judaism reportedly enlisted in the Israeli military.

 

Amnon Yitzhak-Shachar, who was born Ayman Abu-Zubuch in the Gaza Strip town of Khan Younis, reported to Israel’s main draft office last week and was mobilized, Ma’ariv said Sunday. According to the newspaper, Yitzhak-Shachar would not mind serving in a combat unit and fight his former compatriots in Gaza.

 

The Palestinian Israeli became interested in Judaism as a teenager, when he accompanied his father to work in Kfar Saba. He said his parents banished him from Khan Younis after his conversion, and that he chose his new first name, Amnon, after the surname of the Israeli family that adopted him.

I cannot imagine a much weirder scenario than Amnon fighting this man.
