As Hawkmoon would put it, only the ugly Palestinians don't flinch from sending their fanaticized kids to the front line....

Rabbis Take Aim at Women in Ranks
Israeli women can now join combat units. But Orthodox Jews say religious laws may keep observant men from serving with them.


PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- Less than a month after a Palestinian gunman shot her in the face as she patrolled Israel's border with the West Bank, Cpl. Hani Abramov, 19, is itching to get back to her front-line unit.

Lying in a hospital bed, Abramov is a disturbing sight. Her face still is grotesquely swollen and badly bruised. Her shattered jaw distorts her speech. But the message she muttered to an Israel Television interviewer was clear: "I'm going to be back," she vowed. "And I'm going to be crawling on my knees, carrying my faithful gun on my back."

BTW, how come we, in the West, don't watch these footages of Israeli kids psyched up to get back in the action?? Too bad for Israel's image??
