As far as modern times go, most Arabs in Israel don't serve in the army (including my town).
I'm not really aware of any ancestors who fought in wars, Palestinians never really participated in much of the fighting, and when they did, it was mostly townfolk and not from our small villages.

I have heard stories though that my great great grandfather was once beaten by British soliders around the time of WWI and the later British mandate, because he snooped on their train, so there's that :P
