A young Palestinian who used to harbor great anger against the Israelis and refused to go to Israel when they offered refuge to Palestinians during their voluntary quarantine. Kader’s father, who was a janitor in a hospital in Kuwait, had heard of some cases of the zombie virus, and insisted that Kader accompany the family to Israel. On entering Israel, Kader saw the beginning of the Israeli Civil War, which was fought because some Israelis didn’t agree with their government’s idea of opening their country to Palestinians. An Israeli soldier died protecting Kader’s family, and Kader realized that he’d hated these people his whole life but didn’t really know anything about them. He also saw zombies for the first time, and recognized that they were extremely dangerous. He was flabbergasted that the rest of the world was not listening to Israel and following their example, too.
