Monday was the 34th birthday of Avichai Adraee, the Arabic-language spokesperson for the IDF.
He mentioned it on Facebook in light of the party thrown for him at his office.
As of this writing, he received over 1700 comments from Arabic speakers around the world.
While many of the comments were the usual hate, with commenters cursing him and all Israelis, a surprising number of the comments were warm and sincere birthday greetings from Arabs.
Many of the positive comments came from Iraqis, causing much consternation in jihadist media and Egyptian sites calling it "shocking" and worried that Iraq is losing its anti-Israel mojo.
