    When Hamas was elected by the Palestinian people in their last election, Israel embraced Abbas and made him their stooge. After Israel contrived to arrest the Hamas government in order to place leadership into the hands of their stooge, Abbas appointed Fayed to be his stooge. PA security works for Fayed. In the eyes of Israelis this makes PA security stooges of a stooge of their stooge. Sounds safe, right? Far from right. All Palestinians have a built in grievance against Israeli Jews. This is a lifetime grievance and it is inherited by their children and their childrens children. Becoming a member of PA security doesn't erase this grievance. it just puts them in a position to do something about it. In cases where Druze are killed while acting as Israeli stooges, that's the breaks. If the Druze aspire to become second rate Israeli citizens, the IDF is the way to go. Obviously, there is an element of risk in this path.
