Being Arab-Americans... It Is Tough!

Came across this article about Arab-Americans (from Arab origins). After i read it, i have to say... i felt for those three guys.

Conflict in identity surely is an awful feeling :(

Serving America's 'Muslim army'

Arab-Americans have been fighting in Iraq since the very beginning of the conflict there. Many simply see it as their duty to serve their homeland, America.
Others who have ended up on the frontlines in the so-called "war on terror" have suffered a crisis of conscience, having had to fight fellow Arabs and Muslims as the "enemy".

Three Arab-American marines tell their stories.

Bos the guy i connected to most was the palestinian guy who had stones thrown on him by the iraqi children.

But it makes you think, didn't these guys have a way out of this? why not leave the army?

I guess eveyone has obligations and these guys couldn't afford to leave the army.

Wenta?
