Sheikh Daoud Bessis of Daliyat al-Karmel, who fought the Nazis during World War II and helped rescue Jewish prisoners, died over the weekend at the age of 96.
A brave man. RIP
This is how Druze upbringing goes. Brave folk.

Thanks Snoopy for posting this story about Sheikh Bessis and his fellow Druse who fought against the Nazis. Another heroic person who was a leading figure in the Polish Underground died recently here in Washington. Read her and her husband's magnificient story, "A Local Life: Zofia Korbonski, 95. Polish patriot sent clandestine radio dispatches from Nazi-occupied Warsaw" at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/02/AR2010100203469.html Hat tip to Gene at Harry's Place for the post linking to the Post article at http://hurryupharry.org/2010/10/03/rip-zofia-korbonski Fewer and fewer of the generation that saved the world from the Nazis and made our lives possible are with us. We must try to record as many of their stories as possible to pass on to the generations that come after us and will know the War and its generation only from history books and films.
Well, no, Druze soldiers still do a sterling job in IDF.
THanks for the link to the Poland story, David.
